The new Bowens Classic 500C monolight features a new black-painted, sturdy metal case, the Bowens 'S'-type reflector mount, user replaceable flash tube, 250W modelling bulb, switchable slave cell and complete compatibility with the firm's Travelpak battery system.
"User-variable modelling controls are retained and we've added the unique-to-Bowens radio trigger module, allowing the new Gemini Classic to easily integrate with photographers' choice of either Bowens Pulsar or PocketWizard radio trigger systems," says Robert Cook, marketing director at Bowens.
The range was designed to answer customers' demands, he adds. "Our recent recession surveys revealed that customers wanted an additional 'back to basics' option that would still offer renowned Bowens reliability and accuracy but without the full complement of extras found on the Professional Gemini 'R' units."
The Classic 500C retails from £355. A Classic 250C model will also be released in the near future, providing photographers with Bowens' "most cost-efficient option". Price has yet to be communicated.
