If your strobes do not already have the Bowens S-mount, they can get it by fitting an adapter – these are available in about all thinkable combinations and will allow you to use Bowens mount light shapers.

Things to consider

Please note that not all flashes and strobes from the company Bowens are using the S-mount. Some are using the L-mount, while others have different mounts.

The Bowens S-mount has other names as well and we will try later to describe these.

Some flash/strobe manufacturers and OEM brands do not use the terms “Bowens” or “S-mount”, or any other common name, meaning that it can be difficult to know which kind of mount they are using. For instance, Walimex Pro is describing the mount on their flashes in a way that could make a customer believe that this is a special Walimex-mount.
