Cinegel filters are meticulously manufactured on a heat-resistant base polymer utilizing a patented deep-dyed technology.

On-line computerized colorimetry continuously monitors color and density against strict standards, thus assuring a reliable and consistent product.

Lighting fixtures for film and video production usually function by means of a reflector that gathers the light from a point source and focuses it through a lens. The result is a beam that has a high level of intensity or "punch".

But these fixtures also present a number of drawbacks: the projected beam field may be uneven in intensity, the beam edge may be too harsh, or the hard shadows created by the beam may be objectionable or unflattering to the subject.

Placed in the beam path, diffusion materials modify the harsh quality of the beam by spreading or dispersing the light. This effectively softens the beam and alters its shadow-casting properties. In addition, diffusion reduces the contrast between highlight and shadow areas.

Color Tough White Diffusion
Size 20" x 24" (51x61cm) Sheet
Application A moderate diffuser with properties similar to tracing paper. Creates an even field of soft light with minimal color temperature shift. Tough, heat resistant base.

      Comments about Rosco #3026 Filter - Tough White Diffusion - 20x24":

      I needed something to help smooth out the light for a simple DIY lighting set-up for our sports writer's weekly sports video. We shoot it in front of a green screen (also purchased from B&H) so even, balanced light is a real key. The Tough White Diffusion sheets worked perfectly with our simple little set-up. They helped to reduce the shadows and did not alter the temperature of the balanced daylight bulbs we are using. The 20x24 sheets are big enough you can cut them in half and use one sheet for two lights. I have also used them with the strobes in the studio with nice results. I do recommend buying some clothespins to clamp them to your light. The material seems to respond better to the gentle clothespin rather than a more heavy duty clamp.

        Nice Gels, provides a soft overall feel to the light using a 1000 watt light I'm able to still maintain anywhere from 5 to 6.3 on the aperture depending on light distance from subject.

            This really helped me accomplish my goal, the paper works on very high heat temperatur, which was what I really needed, besides diffusing the light it's always a nice effect!

                Great for added diffusion over lights, or small areas between light source.

                  This stuff is great. Figured I'd give it a try after someone suggested that it works just like a softbox. And it does! Did some tests with my 24x20 softbox and the result is almost identical. You never need to buy another softbox again!

                    We are a professional production company, using this product for corporate video interviews. It worked great, but there's not a lot of variation when it comes to diffusion. I'd buy it again.

                      I'm using this material on a stereomicroscope transmitted light base over the light port in order to create an evenly illuminated background for photography. It works wonderfully.

                        I use this stuff on everything. Studio Strobes, Speedlights, Quartz lights and phtotographing glass in the studio. The sheet are handy and inexpesives as I don't need a huge roll.
