Whose idea in this company was it to place the bar-code sticker ON the actual gel itself. the red gels come with a bar-code sticker with some strong adhesive. i tried peeling them off slowly but they just ripped and there's adhesive all on it. would you place a bar-code sticker on the screen of an lcd screen? would you place a barcode sticker on page inside a book? then why would you place a sticker dab in the actual product? its probably not a big issue to most people, but it is to me. please fix this, its not hard.
I love these gels. Very effective on my 500 LED panel (not quite wide enough, but they get the job done). I've cut them up before to use on 160 LED lights (cut to the right size and put it right behind the clear diffuser). Or cut it up and put it over a camera flash (I've used it on a Canon 580 ex, and 430 ex), just use some velcro wrapped around the flash head to keep it in place. Because the are 12inx12in it's plenty large enough to cut into a bunch of pieces for different uses.
I'd knock off one star because the sticker label that comes on one of the gels, but for the price I can live with the pain to remove. I rubbed peanut butter into the glue to get it off (but it's too much work).
These Gels do have some scratches on them as commonly reported, so serious photographers need not apply. However, if you want to see what happens when you put a blue gel over a tungsten light and set your camera's white balance to flash before you go spending money on professional grade sets this a great way to find out.
It would also seem the manufacturer is listening to these reviews somewhat. There were previous complaints that the UPC sticker was placed directly onto one of the gels. I am pleased to report that the Gels now come in a plastic bag with the UPC on the outside of the bag.
Still I do kind of wish the gels were just a little bit cheaper. As an amateur on a tight budget it would be nice to have two of each main color for under ten bucks.
I use these, chopped down to size, to color light from an LED light source (Neewer® Pro CN-160 LED camera video lamp light for Canon Nikon), and the filters do exactly what I want, at a great price, and with enough filter material left over to use for other light sources (strobes, constant lights, etc.). You can read about this in my product review for my Neewer LED lights.
My only gripes is that these gels are a bit on the flimsy side, and the plastic is soft enough to pick up scratches easily (probably no big deal, though) if one's not careful.
