Bowens BW4326US Description:
The Bowens Gemini Digital 500 Watt/Second Two Monolight Travel-Pak Kit is based on the Gemini DX 500 watt/second monolight. This 1000 total watt/second kit includes a silver-white umbrella, 24 x 32" (60 x 80cm) softbox, 7' light stands, sync cord, kit bag, and the Travel-Pak battery with case and charger.
Power from each monolight is controlled via a single rotary dial allowing control in exact 1/10 stops over five stops from full to 1/32 power. The large and clear digital display shows the current power level as well as other important information at the touch of a button. The display can even be inverted when using ceiling rail systems.
Just like the original Gemini unit, this monolight can function with AC or the proprietary Bowens Travel Pak battery, available separately. When away from AC power, the Travel-Pak is able to power two monolights simultaneously (with the optional second power cord), with a total power of up to 1500 watt/seconds.
