I feel as if I am cheating!

are you kidding??? For the money????? these gels fit PERFECTLY (with a small snip of the scissors, or a simple fold) in my SB series Nikon gel holders to give me EVERYTHING I could possibly want in a gel color filter..... have you EVER seen THAT color array, ANYwhere else? Especially for the money...... had you looked at the price of the gel sheets they represent? Could you afford to experiment with that much color any other way?

A Little Too Small

I bought them to try out various colors for whatever use. However, to see the results, I need to fire a flash through them, and they are too small. The spill dilutes the colors. So, no real use to me.

Colors galore!

By

SO MANY COLORS! Wow, this little pack is full of colors. Each gel is the perfect dimension for testing flash colors on my Canon Speedlights (430EX). I didn't give it 5 stars because the pack has a hole punched in each gel (which is useful for putting them all on a string or loop) but when the hole was punched (with something hot) it melted a lot of them together and they're hard to separate without ripping... Good testers otherwise. I'm looking forward to testing on white backdrops for added effect.

Useful and economical

By

Exactly what you think they are: a small booklet of jillions of swatches. Fantastic for using as gels for light painting photography by putting them in front of various light sources, such as flashlights, speedlights, etc., and at an economical cost.

Complete Set

This is a nice gel sample kit. My only complaint is the screw holding it together makes it awkward to handle. I would rather have them in a small box.

It gives you the perfect size to fit your speed light! If you like it then order a full gel. Nice set.

wonderful range of color!

By

from east lynn, wv  -  Pro Photographer

perfect size for my Nikon Speed light, the gel holder they provide, and nicely informative. The seperator paper has the color spectrum information about each sheet/color and I find that very helpful in choosing the colors I wan't or need. It'd be handy if it were in a rolodex or something like that to better access and/or contain them, but otherwise a great product and an outstanding price!
