Bowens Gemini 500 Twin Head Travel Pak Kit

The kit is in excellent condition and has only been used a few times. I am also including in the sale over 300 of additional equipment beyond the standard kit. This includes a fully collapsable Lastlolite Ezybox 90 softbox (and SpeedRing), an additional Travel-Pak cable (original kit only comes with one), a Bowens Keylite Reflector and a background kit.

Bargain at 800 including all the extras.

Check out the webpage for full details and photographs:

If you are interested or have any questions feel free to ask away by reply rather than PM (in accordance with the advice for this forum).

Thanks

Geoff

Re: Bowens Gemini 500 Twin Head Travel Pak Kit

Hi,

Thanks for the question. As mentioned the kit has hardly been used so I don't have any shots on my current pc. Let me dig about and see if I can find some I took of my wife a while back.

Re: Bowens Gemini 500 Twin Head Travel Pak Kit

Hi again,

Struggling to find any shots from the old pc taken with this setup. I have found a couple but they were when I first got the kit and was trying to figure it all out so they aren't great.

Re: Bowens Gemini 500 Twin Head Travel Pak Kit

Hi,

I came across this article where the 2nd and 3rd photographers used this setup (the 3rd using a softbox so gives a better idea of the diffused wrap around light you get with a large softbox).
http://www.warehouseexpress.com/home...ign-shows.html

This guy has some shots on this page with a similar setup
http://christopheralgarphotography.tumblr.com/page/2

And a few more examples

http://www.alexorrow.co.uk/blog/2009...xample-part-1/

Just had all the kit out to check and photograph. Should have done some examples then .... doh!

Re: Bowens Gemini 500 Twin Head Travel Pak Kit

It does look like a fabulous piece of kit! I would love it - but at the moment I can't afford it, and it would take me a while to save enough, and then I'd have to pick it up when in the UK, which - thinking about it - is not until end of August anyway. Ah well I'm sure it'll find a good home very soon! If you still have it in a couple of months ( HAH!) then I'll get back in touch!

Re: Bowens Gemini 500 Twin Head Travel Pak Kit

Thanks for your interest anyway Zoundz. End of August is only a couple of months away and I am not in desperate need to sell urgently so you never know. Start saving just in case lol.

Sorry BlackCloud but I can't accept kidneys at the moment (Although I could probably do with a new liver!) If you do find a buyer however I would consider travelling some of the way to shorten your journey.

Thanks

Geoff
