A very good assortment of gels to get you going - Avoid cheaper alternatives
on December 23, 2014
A solid set to have. These work great on many Fresnel and open face lights. They may also work with panel type lights such as larger LED and tube fixtures like kinos. Measure first!
Yes these are quality, heat resistant, color accurate gels. Be wary of cheap gells which can melt easy, catch fire, or just simply look bad. This is a good investment to make.
I wish they were 2 inches longer, but not a dealbreaker. since you get more than 1 of each color, i taped two side by side to cover a 2 foot CFL fixture. No problem.
This pack probably isn't targeted at the big pros, who will typically by rolls of each gel. That aside, it comes with a very good assortment of commonly used gels, you can always add to it.
Cheap, barely suitable, but head to any dollar store and you can probably nab something that will work just fine. You can also DIY the case by slicing the sides off, and adding a strap/bungee/etc... so that you can open the whole thing flat open, and then secure it closed again. No i haven't done that, but it's a thought for those of your DIY'ers out there.
