Great Cheap Gels,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cowboystudio Color Correction Gels - Set of 4 12x12 inches Gels (Electronics)
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).
