Lighting equipment. Calumet/Bowen Travelite

Hi all. I recently inherited a bunch of photograph equipment from my uncle. I'm trying to figure out if these lights are new or old. And even just how to use them.

They are a Travelite 750 CE-1000 and a Travelite 375 CE-1010.

I tried googling them, to no avail. I guess they are not the latest model, so the Calumet site is no help either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a feeling these are awesome, and being able to set up a studio would be amazing.

Found a couple of the 750 models for sale on eBay, and judging by the pictures, it looks as though you set a general power range with one control (the one marked in fractions), then use the other control for fine-tuning as needed. I’m not sure where the test button is, though, but you could probably test-fire them if you have a camera with a built-in flash. They have slaves.

Have you used studio strobes before?

No, I'm new to studio gear. I've been going to shoots the past couple weeks so I'm getting my barrings. Still haven't set these up.

Thanks for the help :)

The "test" button is for use with a flash meter. I allows you to fire the heads without having to actuate the camera shutter...

And also to make sure that it is actually firing, of course. Do you know if there is one on these strobes? I’m not familiar with them.

Couldn't say. I'm a Hensel user, myself.
