Two words to describe the Bowens RX400 kit, portability and power, for the photographer on the move they are an ideal solution. I had the chance to test out the RX kit on a recent photoshoot with Red Dwarf and Coronation Street actor Craig Charles.
The Rx 400 Kit is smaller than the standard Bowens Gemini kits, with the test button now integrated with the power LED. On the back, there are three switches: one to change the modelling light mode, one to change the modelling light control and one for setting whether the device beeps when its ready to be triggered again. The 400Rx also has the standard Bowens battery port, so is able to be used with the Travel Battery-pak .
Built into the 400Rx is a radio receiver compatible with Bowens Pulsar radio triggering system the system allows for 24 channels, accessed by using the two buttons on the transmitter. The Pulsar Radio trigger is lightweight, compact and solid . With the receiver being built in, you don’t have to have things attached or dangling from the monolight, but there still is a sync port in case you don’t have the option to use the Radio trigger.
