Here it is at last. We have just taken delivery of our first 100 Geminis, our latest precision engineered lighting accessory. The design is simple and effective. The finish is first class and the Gemini was designed and made in England.
Gemini ~ The twin Speedlight bracket designed for use with Nikon or Canon Pocket Wizard TTL receivers.
The Gemini has a universal 16mm socket for use with a wide range of lighting stands.
The build quality is fabulous with radiused corners. The Gemini has a hardwearing silver anodised finish.
The Gemini is locked in place by a multi positionable lever arm. The knob on the top is used to secure an optional umbrella.
The asymmetric foot plate allows a perfect clearance for the Pocket Wizard Flex units and keeps the Speedlight heads close and parallel to the umbrella shaft.
Speedlight heads can be orientated in a vertical aspect format for lighting a standing person.
In this view you can see the usual format for setting the flash units for use with a silver or shoot through umbrella.
The Gemini works equally well with smaller and larger Speedlights from both Canon and Nikon. The flashes are situated near the end of the umbrella shaft to ensure a full and even light coverage.
The flash units mounted in Gemini offer the least posable blocking of the light output from the umbrella. You can see the evenness of umbrella illumination too. Another industry first.
When used with an umbrella the Gemini is in near perfect balance. The weight of the Speedlights close to the lighting stand counteracts that of the umbrella set further out.
Gemini is perfect solution for wedding photographers shooting groups inside. The twin Speedlight option ensures either more power or faster recycling times.
Gemini is perfect for Nikon shooters too. Now that the new Pocket Wizard TTL units for Nikon have been launched the Gemini is the perfect companion for an SB-900 and an SB-800. You can use the Gemini with one or two Speedlights as required.
Update – Gemini is now available to order here.
