Now with Gemini that range has been improved and refined - offering four distinct ranges designed to suit every type of photographer from aspiring amateurs to demanding commercial photographers and everyone in-between. 5 - compact flash systems | Bowens monolights have always been at the leading edge of studio and location lighting with a wide-range of flash lighting and light shaping accessories. (page 8) 6 - Monolights | gemini For small studios, location photographers or those just on a tight budget, the entry-level Gemini 200 & 400 models are the perfect lighting solution. Small and lightweight yet tough and durable, they have the ability to be powered from AC mains or the optional Bowens Travelpak battery. With five stops of power control and multiple modelling options, it’s a great way to get into the Bowens lighting system. Gemini Classic (Page 10) Gemini R (page 12) Gemini Pro (page 14) To become ‘radio-enabled’ step up to the ‘Classic’ range. For more precise power-control choose the Gemini ‘R’ range. For greater power and faster flash-durations the ‘Pro’ range is for you. Available in two sizes 250 or 500Ws, the Gemini Classic features two dials to adjust the flash power and modelling power. Available in two sizes 250 or 500Ws, the award-winning R type Gemini features twin dials to adjust the power in exact stops or tenths of stops and functions can also be controlled with the optional remote control. Flash-durations as quick as 1/2400sec capture split-second action, ideal for fashion photographers and with faster recycling you won’t be waiting for your lighting to catch-up. The Gemini Classic also features the ability to take a plug-in module (see page 21) to make it compatible with Bowens Pulsar or PocketWizard® radio triggers. The Gemini R units easily become ‘radioenabled’ via an optional plug-in Pulsar or PocketWizard® module. With power from 500Ws-1500Ws the Pro range delivers as much light as you need and with it’s multi-voltage technology able to run from 90V - 250V. It’s a winner worldwide! The ‘Lamp-saver’ feature dims the modelling lamp to half power if no activity is detected for 30 mins. Users can set Lamp-saver to activate from 1 to 99 minutes. Modelling can also be set to either extinguish fully while recycling or gently pulse as a visual indication when the flash is ready to go again, in addition to or instead of the ready beep. The display can easily be inverted so that if you are using the Gemini on a ceiling rail system, such as the Hi-Glide system, the information is always the right way up. Remote Control Control the Gemini R & Pro models remotely with the compact Infrared remote control unit.

The Gemini 250R and 500R retain the unique ability to be powered from AC mains in the studio or the award-winning Travelpak battery unit out on location as well as a range of advanced features designed to offer photographers not only ultimate freedom but unmatched power, durability and control too. Take Control. Why should precise control be complicated? Simplicity is the key with Gemini. Digitally accurate control is easy without a confusing digital menu! Turn one dial for stops and the other for tenths to instantly set five stops of power with precision control, the LED display confirms the power output. Modelling control is also made simple with one switch, choose from full, proportional or off or even set the modelling lamp to any level you desire. Freedom is your choice These days unreliable sync cords are a distant memory for most photographers. Now you can also forget bulky radio receivers attached to your lights too! Thanks to the unique radio-card facility on the Gemini R. By simply plugging a radio trigger card into the slot on the back, Gemini lights instantly become compatible with either the Pulsar radio trigger system or the PocketWizard® system - the choice is yours! Because the radio trigger card becomes an integral part of the unit it is much more reliable than an external receiver which can only be as good as it’s cord connection. Gemini R monolights can be controlled remotely with the Gemini IR remote handset [BW3960] which can adjust all features from up to 7m (22’) away. See page 16 for money-saving kit options.

Capture split-second action If you need to capture action, then the Pro range is for you, the 500Pro has an amazingly short flash-duration of 1/2400 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 flash tube is easily user replaceable too - so, no expensive service center fees if it needs replacing. The true go-anywhere system 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 operate on meaning that 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. More time to create In photography everyone knows that time is money. 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. Fan cooling. High power and rapid recycling equals heat. The Gemini Pro fan automatically starts, when needed, to prevent overheating.

Each Pulsar unit can be either a transmitter or receiver and is capable of sending or receiving signals beyond 100m [333’]. Unlike Infrared triggering systems, the radiotransmitted Pulsar operates around corners and through walls. The Pulsar has four separate channels, enabling the photographer to isolate up to four light sources or to combine them and fire all of them at once without leaving the camera. Additionally, the Pulsar has a studio selector switch, which provides isolation from other Pulsar units using the same channel, and allowing up to six different systems to operate independently in the same space or studio. Other Pulsar features include: • Long battery life up to 200 hours of continuous use from two AAA batteries. • Low voltage operation of just 3V, ideal for use with digital cameras. • Compact and lightweight design allows the units to be mounted directly onto your camera’s hot shoe or to your generator, or monolights.

(±2% from 3000 to 200Ws) The QUADX lets you control the flash output of each head in 1⁄10-stop increments and offers repeatable output flash after flash, which is ideal for multi-shot camera backs. Sync voltage: 6V Stabilisation: ±0.1% Dimensions: 17 x 37 x 37cm (w.l.h) Weight: 11.5kg [25.5lbs] Consistent Colour & Short Flash. Most Efficient Charging System. The power-management system of the QUADX monitors and adjusts capacitor performance to ensure total output accuracy and consistency, retaining a colour temperature of 5800K, ±2%. Capacitor switching delivers greater colour consistency over the entire power range as well as providing flash durations as short as 1/1430 sec. with a single head at full power (1/7100 sec. with two heads at 250Ws). The advanced charging system is extremely efficient and extends the life of the capacitors. The automatic mode provides a slow initial charge and then, by monitoring the temperature of the capacitors, offers the fastest possible recharging times. QUADX Features Four flash head outlets with power divided into two independent channels. Power output from 3000Ws to 31Ws with one head (16Ws with two heads!) Colour consistency varies less than ±200K when operating between 250 & 3000Ws. An advanced charging system operates most efficiently and extends capacitor life. Flash durations faster than 1/7000 sec. are made possible with the use of triple electrode flash tubes in the QUADX head. Features Auto-bracketing is easy to set up with three-intervals from 1⁄10 to 9⁄10-stop. An optional IR Remote Control System allows photographers to control all functions up to 30 feet away. Variable-speed cooling fans respond to internal temperature changes to ensure peak performance. The control panel of the QUADX is simple and intuitive to use. Power is divided into two independent channels, A and B, one having a maximum power of 2000Ws (A), the other (B) 1000Ws. Each channel controls two flash-head outlets in 1⁄10-stop increments. When more than one head is used in the same channel, the power of that channel will be divided equally between those two heads. When a head is connected to Channel B, the pack automatically becomes asymmetric. Once lighting ratio or contrast levels are set, power level adjustments can be made to achieve perfect exposures. Advanced QUADX Features With its sophisticated circuitry, the QUADX gives the photographer access to many advanced features including trigger delay, flash counter, joules/percentage display, multi-flash mode, memory function and more.

QUAD 2400 Features With two channels, choose from taking the full 2400Ws from a single socket, or dividing the power across two channels giving a wide selection of powers. Once the pack is switched to its asymmetrical mode, two channels, each with a maximum power of 1200Ws are available. As each can be adjusted independently of the other a great deal of lighting flexibility can be achieved. Flash power can be adjusted in accurate steps of 1⁄3rd f-stop, offering excellent control of exposure. Large LED displays show clearly the Ws output per channel. Each channel can be adjusted over three f-stops. With a minimum power output of just 37Ws the QUAD 2400 has a range of 6 f-stops. The overall power of the pack can be reduced using a system of capacitor switching. By reducing the number of capacitors being used a greater level of colour consistency can be achieved. In practice this means that the QUAD 2400 can be switched from 2400Ws, to 1200Ws to 600Ws with less than 70K shift in colour temperature. In addition to selecting full power modelling or lamps in proportion, the ‘Auto’ setting will set the modelling lamp of the brightest head to maximum, even when the overall flash power of the pack is set at a low level. This helps the photographer preview their lighting, even at the lowest of flash powers. The QUAD 2400 offers a host of features that are designed to make the photographers job easier: Audio Ready Signal This switchable signal lets you know when your pack is 100% charged even when it is out of visual range. Flash Voltage Stabilisation To ensure consistently dependable output the QUAD 2400 offers ±1% flash-voltage stabilisation at maximum power. Two Sync. Sockets Two conveniently located sync. sockets allow you to simultaneously connect your pack to your camera and your light meter without time consuming disconnections and reconnections. These sync sockets can also be used for IR or radio triggers such as the Bowens Pulsar; for wireless triggering. Unique Modelling Modes Intermittent modelling mode extinguishes all modelling lamps when the pack is fired and turns them back on again when the pack is 100% recycled. This provides a visual indication that the pack, and each head, has been successfully triggered and recycled. Built-in Photo Cell In order to activate your QUAD 2400 pack from other flash units, a convenient photo cell is built directly into the pack. Order Codes: BW7620EURO QUAD2400 (Euro).

Softbox & Wafer adapter rings Bowens Quickring The original Bowens-designed Quickring is designed to make the assembly (and disassembly!) of any softbox or Wafer lightbank easier than ever. The advanced design of the Quickring allows the center ring to be released and rotated, this relieves tension on the support rods as the softbox is being assembled. Now broken and bent rods and sore thumbs can become a thing of the past. Assembling a softbox using the Qucikring couldn’t be simpler. First insert the rods into your softbox, then unlock the adapter ring, insert all four softbox rods into the Quickring, then close to lock the adapter ring back in place and your softbox is assembled - easy! BW3110 Bowens softboxes and Wafer Lightbanks can be used with many other types of flash system simply by changing the inner adapter ring.

The interior silver and white surfaces have been designed to ensure optimum evenness of light. Because the light is so even, it can be used close to the subject to produce maximum softness as well as maximum light output. Assembling the large Octo150 is easy. Simply insert the support rods into the adaptor ring then zip up the two side zips to create the octobox. At last a big softbox that can be assembled, and disassembled, quickly and easily. The Octo150 comes supplied with a travel bag for easy transportation. Just like its bigger counterpart the Bowens Octo90 is a large octagonal softbox designed to create a perfectly round pool of beautiful soft, diffused light. The 90cm (3’) diameter of the Octo90 makes it ideal for smaller studios who need a big beauty light but don’t have room for large parabolic reflectors. Thanks to the easy to assemble zip-up design of the softbox and its small disassembled size, the Octo90 is also perfect for location work The unique round diffuser creates aesthetically pleasing catchlights making this the perfect beauty softbox and the softness and evenness of the light means the Octo90 can be used from large lighting setups to close in to the subject with no loss in the quality of light. To assist with creating perfect skin tones in beauty work and portraiture, the Octo90 comes supplied with two removeable inner tone reflectors, one gold and the other silver and gold - use in conjunction with the large silver interior of the softbox for amazing skin tones. Because the flash unit is mounted facing the rear of the softbox there is no hot-spot on the front diffuser - the light is bounced from the rear of the Octo90 to create a remarkably soft and even light. To assemble the Octo90, insert the support rods into adaptor ring, then zip-up the side panels and secure in place with the fastening tabs - fast and simple. | Octoboxes | Octoboxes 48 - Light Modifiers Octo150 Unlike other large octagonal softboxes available on the market, Bowens Octoboxes feature a perfectly round front diffuser for perfectly round catch lights, which are cleaner and more pleasing than their multisided counterparts. Another difference is how your flash unit is mounted inside the Octobox, facing the rear - away from the subject. This offers two distinct advantages over traditional softboxes. Because there are no extra layers of diffusion fabric between the light source and the front diffuser, it is a remarkably efficient softbox and can be used with a relatively small flash, such as a Gemini 500. Round front diffuser Octo90 Diameter: 90cmØ [3’Ø] Depth: 75cm [21⁄2’] Weight: 4.7kg [10lbs] BW1640 Octo 90 49 - Light Modifiers Adjustment Handle The Bowens Octo150 is a unique large soft box which offers several unique features that are particularly of advantage to portrait photographers.

The Wafer design is supplied with two internal Mylar baffles or screens, each printed with a special pattern to ensure the light distribution on the front cloth is absolutely even over its entire surface.

Wafer light banks produce a crisp, smooth quality of light while their narrow profile and silver/white interiors with two interchangeable graduated inner baffles deliver unparalleled flexibility and control. The front cloth of the Wafer is recessed to help control light spill.

BW4441 Intensifier Ends 65 - continuous Light Fabric Diffuser light tents The working studio is a busy place... Photographer, models, props and subjects are competing for space with cameras, tripods, lighting stands and cables. Hi-Glide not only increases your shooting space but also improves safety by reducing the risk of injury or damage to you, your customers and your valuable equipment. 67 - Hi-Glide System | Bowens Hi-Glide can transform even the smallest of studios into an effective and creative shooting environment. As well as creating a better working environment Hi-Glide also provides incredible lighting flexibility. 68 - Hi-Glide Rail System | The Design All your lights, accessories, powerpacks and backdrops can all be suspended and positioned exactly where you need them; making the best use of your studio space. Moving rails allow for quick and easy horizontal positioning while the wide range of adjustable mountings and extension tubes provide full vertical height control. Locking devices hold everything in place so there is no chance of disturbing your carefully created lighting set-ups. Hi-Glide can be used in just about any studio with a wide range of accessories to ensure that you can create a set-up that will be perfect for your studio. First, check whether you have enough clearance height for Hi-Glide to be effective. It is recommended to have a minimum floorto-ceiling height of 2.8m and ideally 3.5m as the optimum height. Second, check the ceiling is going to be strong enough to support the weight. Remember that it will have to carry the combined weight of the rail system and all of your equipment. If you satisfy both of these requirements then, congratulations you are Hi-Glide ready. The Design. You will need a minimum of two fixed/static rails which will be attached parallel to each other on the ceiling. These should be placed approximately 1.8m apart so that the moving rail(s), when placed at 90° to the fixed rail, have up to 60cm overhang at each end. If the fixed rails are too far apart the moving rail(s) will only be able to move at right angles to the fixed rails. For larger spaces, three or more fixed rails can be used; Three fixed rails are recommended when using 4.5m moving rails. Consider where you will want to place your lights when drafting your design. You may want to always shoot in the same position, or though the flexibility of Hi-Glide, create more adventurous set-ups. If you draw a plan of your shooting space you can start to design a system that will be right for your needs. Remember that moving rails can move beyond the fixed rails so you will gain shooting space beyond them. Step one (Rails) Step two (Fixings) Step three (Rail Attachments) Step four (Attaching Lights) You should have an idea of how long the rails will need to be for your studio. If you need longer rails, the fixed rails can always be extended using Rail Joining Plates (BW2633). Moving rails cannot be extended. It is very important that you use the correct fixings for your ceiling, and that you use enough of them to safely support the weight of the Hi-Glide system and all the equipment being supported. At every point where a fixed rail crosses a moving rail you will need a Double Carriage (BW2603) and for stability it is recommended that you use at least one Double Carriage with Brake (BW2620) on each moving rail. Always attach to a load bearing part of the structure (wall or ceiling). If the ceiling height is too high, use the Drop Supports to lower the height of the fixed rails so that they are at a correct level. It is important that the fixed rails are level when secured or the moving rails will not stay in position. You will have decided how many items you are going to hang from the rails. Everything will need a carriage to mount it onto the rail. For lighter weight items use a Single Carriage (BW2604), for heavier items the 6 Wheel Carriage (BW2628) will allow for easier, more fluid movement. If your lights are always at the same height then a fixed Length Extension Tube can be used along with an additional Adaptor Spigot (BW2652). The Litelift Pantographs allow lights to be easily raised and lowered. Each Litelift is supplied with type 1 & 2 springs, if the item you are mounting weighs more than 5.4Kg you will need additional stronger type 3 & 4 springs. To add items after your Hi-Glide has been installed, you can use the Addalite Carriage (BW2660) which can be fixed to a rail without dismantling the whole system. | Building the System Remove the need for lighting stands and trailing wires. The Hi-Glide Studio Rail System increases your shooting space and transforms your studio into an efficient working environment. building the system Are you Hi-Glide compatible? 69 - Hi-Glide System hi-glide rail system If you plan to use heavy accessories on your lighting a Centre Of Gravity Bar (BW2622) can be used to adjust the weight balance.
