The gels are good, i just need them to change my lights color and add some mood to my videos. There are scratches on these gels, every. single. one. if that matters to you, don't get them, you will regret it, otherwise, like me, it doesn't affect my lights. but there is one issue i'm really pissed about.

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.

Yes, as other reviews say, they do come scratched. If you are using them as color gels does that matter? No! This is a gel to color lights, not to put over a camera lens, so scratches don't effect the usability of the product.

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).

The primary purpose of these Gels is to provide a good entry point for students and amateur photographers who have never experimented with gels before to do so. At such a low price burning a hole in one of your gels the first time you use one ever due to direct contact with a 250-500 watt flood light (for example, your clothes pin popped off of your clamp light when you moved your PVC pipe light stand) really isn't that much of a travesty. (For the record I'm pretty sure even the higher end gels will melt from direct contact.)

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.

These are not real gels as they melt under tungsten lighting and are much more rigid. I would recommend against buying these unless you you will be using them with an LED light or the like.

The gels are great and packaged well. However, there was a big barcode sticker with a description on it on the yellow gel. Even after I peeled off the sticker, there is still a big rectangular spot that has residue all over it and it quite distracting and annoying to put in front of a light source.

The gels are real solid in color. I cut them down to wallet size (3.5in x 2 in) to accommodate the slot on the side of my flash head on my Vivitar 285hv. They did arrive scratched but I real don't care because it doesn't refract the light where the scratches are, so I really don't mind. If I paid a lot of money for them then maybe I'd be upset but for a few bucks I really didn't find it an issue. With that said I couldn't give the product a five star rating either. After all it is supposed to be brand new.

I have never written a review before but I feel so strongly that this is such a worthless product that I will take the time to do so. The whole purpose of color gels is to change the color of the white lights in your par cans to colored light; very simple -- right? Well... these do not do that. They are so lightly colored that the human eye can barely decipher any color change at all in only the darkest colored gels, such as the red gel, which you can barely discern a vaguely pink tone emanating from when the light shines through. to make matters worse, THEY MELT AT A LOW TEMP!!! With standard par 36 lamps behind them, they began to MELT! Can you say Fire hazard?

First off, these are NOT color correction (CC) gels in the usual sense: They are used to add color, but NOT to balance color temps from different light sources (eg, daylight, strobe, fluorescent, incandescent). Nonetheless, they are great to place in front of strobes or constant light sources to add some color to a shot.

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.
