Hi folks,

Just wondering if any company has been designated to supply parts and service for Bowens products since Bowens has shut down.

I unfortunately don't have an answer for Canada, but CRIS in Chandler, Arizona was and still is handling factory repairs for Bowens gear (and all other Manfrotto-distributed brands) in the US. Worst case, you may be able to use a freight forwarder or a friend to get US service.

OK ColinM, I really appreciate that,,,, thanks very much.

The reason I'm asking is; I'm considering buying a set of Bowens XMT500 location lights. Bowens apparently launched those just before Aurelius pulled the plug on Bowens. Judging by the price and features, it appears they were intended to compete directly with the Profoto B-1's. Have you looked at those by any chance? B&H is selling those for $3800./pair, and I can get a set for roughly 1/2 price.

I found out today, that Henry's Cameras in Toronto, is providing warranty and service for the Bowens gear
