Bowens has launched a new state-of-the-art ringflash, which is available now for £869 (+VAT).

Aimed at fashion, commercial and advertising photographers, the Bowens Ringflash replaces its predecessor which had hardly changed in 40 years.

Robert Cook, Bowens marketing director explains: "The original unit, although still technically sound, was starting to look dated and cumbersome so we developed a brand new Ringflash after talking at length to photographers about their commercial needs.

"This new model is smaller and lighter and boasts a number of new features including a comfort-grip handle, a single continuous ring providing faster flash generation, twin-cooling fans and user replaceable modelling lamps and flash tube."

He added: “The new unit uses ten 20-watt halogen lamps and requires just a single cable which plugs into any Bowens quad socket."
