Bowens Launch New Product Trio - Bowens have launched three new products for professional photographers.
The pioneering high performance Creo packs have advanced, built-in self-cooling systems, and boast ultra-fast, action-stopping flash durations and easy to use intuitive control panels.
Robert Cook, marketing director said: "The Creo packs are the culmination of two years’ research. We talked extensively to photographers, commercial studios and rental houses about their ‘wish list’ requirements for the next generation of packs – and we have come up with ‘pinnacle performance’ 1200Ws and 2400Ws models with specifications that until now could have only been found on the most expensive generators. Previous price points meant ownership was out of reach for many photographers but the new Creo with its legendary Bowens build-quality and outstanding overall performance, offers superb value without compromise.
A new optional Creo infrared remote control unit also enables operation without the user needing to leave his/her camera position. Additionally, the packs have adopted the popular Pulsar radio trigger card system found on our best-selling Gemini monolights. The card plugs into a control panel slot and provides instant wireless freedom."
Key Creo features at a glance:
- Ultra-fast recycling – just 0.5 secs to full power
- Flash durations as quick as 1/5000 sec
- Up to 8 flashes per second
- Up to 1000 full power flashes per hour
- 10-stop power range (9-stop Creo 1200)
- Super high colour stability± 80k from 4.0 to 10.0
- Radio enabled for wire-free sync with Bowens Pulsar
- Advanced self-cooling and system protection technology
- Self-seeking multi-voltage for worldwide compatibility
Bowens have also launched a new, larger beauty dish and a new version of the company’s acclaimed Jetstream Wind Machine.
The new 53.5 cm diameter dish, billed by Bowens as ‘a studio essential’, is 40% larger than the Softlite version and includes a fabric diffuser cap. It will retail at £120 and is available now.
Bowens launched their new Jetstream 250 and 350 Wind Machine options at photokina 2012.
Robert Cook said: "No fashion studio is complete without a Jetstream. Our new models feature intuitive digital control panels and the ability to be controlled remotely from the Gemini monolight IR remote control. They come complete with their own stands for floor use, or they can be mounted onto a standard lighting support stand."
Prices for the new-look Jetstream (available now) start from £800 inc.VAT.
