The Gemini Pro range delivers more power and faster flash-durations making it the perfect portable flash system for fashion or commercial photographers.
Available in four sizes from 500Ws to 1500Ws the Gemini Pro monolights feature all of the benefits of the Gemini r units, including Travelpak battery and Pulsar Trigger Card compatibility, but also offer flash-durations as fast as 1/2900 sec and a voltage seeking power system which makes them useable just about anywhere in the world. If you need to capture action, then the Pro range is for you, the Gemini 500pro has an amazingly short flash-duration of 1/2900 sec!Compare this to 1/900 sec on the Gemini 500r and the decision is easy for fashion photographers. The three electrode, flash tube is the reason for the action freezing flash times on the Gemini Pro monolights - the fastest Bowens monolights ever! The Travelpak battery unit means that Gemini Pro lights can go anywhere out on location. But what about when you are in the studio in another country? With the Pro range, the Gemini becomes a true go anywhere system. Advanced circuitry within the unit is able to seek the correct voltage to run on meaning that, with a simple switch of modelling lamp, you can take a Gemini Pro monolight anywhere in the world, safe in the knowledge that it will work wherever you go - inside or out. That is why the Gemini Pro range of monolights boast recycling times to full power faster than ever before. Now you can spend less time waiting for your lights to power up and more time creating amazing images with your world-class lighting.

The Bowens Gemini 500 is a professional level studio flash monolight i. Everything is in the flash head, rather than using floor generators which is highly controllable, delivers consistent results, and keeps working.
Unless you can afford Profoto, Gemini is my number one recommendation. We ran a four light Gemini flash rig for a couple of years and got some very good help and support from the Bowens team with some of our technical issues.
Prior to this we had run an Elinchrom rig, which was also very good. All of the electronics etc work exactly as you would expect them to do. Download the manual, read it: everything promised works as promised. Colour temperature is consistent across the range, when you turn the lights down they go lower (with cheap ones you have to manually trigger to'dump' the power), recycle time is fast, the optical triggering is consistently right, the fan is fairly quiet but means you can keep shooting all day if you have to.
In other words, these lights keep doing what they are supposed to, consistently, without you having to think about it.
