              Roscoe filters are as good as they come for mere mortals anyway. When you need to balance a light that's just a bit too cold to 3200, this is a great choice, double it to add more... versatile.

                    Got the 1/4 CTO rather than the 1/2 so I can have more precise control over the warming. By layering the sheets, I could get warming effects in 1/4 increments. The 20x24 size gave me plenty of plastic to gel my speed lights and quantum flashes all the way to Full CTO and still have some left over for lighter conversions.Other than that, it's a filter and does what it does.

                        There is not much to say about this gel filter regarding to quality and durability.
                        I use primarily on my speedlights to get the fill light matching the ambient light when shooting outdoors. It really does the trick adding a nice orange/gold light to my subjects (specially sunset/ sunrise).
                        I cut a strip of 1/4 CTO (4x the width of my speedlight) and have it folded a couple of times. This way I can have a range from 1/4 to a full stop (orange intensity) depending how I use it (all unfolded=1/4, folded in half=1/2, half+1 end folded=3/4, and all folded=1 full stop). Pretty simple.
                        Cheap and very effective.

                          I use this on my daylight balanced florescent lights, and it works great for warming them closer to tungsten light. The quality of the gel is good, I can't find anything to complain about.

                            I cut the gel sheet into small sheets to attach over my Speedlites using rubber bands to slightly warm my fill flash during daylight shoots. I think it provides for a more natural skin tone. The gel size is large enough to probably last me a couple of decades as I lose or ruin the cutouts over time.

                              Solid stuff. Cheap, doesn't tear or rip. Takes more of a beating than you'd expect. One sheet will last you forever for hotshoe SLR flashes. I have some around my Nikon speedlight all the time (attached with Velcro), seems to survive fine. 1/4 good for warming the flash up just a bit.

                                    I use this primarily for fill flash to match the color temperature of the flash to the ambient light.

                                        I use these to balance a 56k LED fixture to varying degrees for indoor lighting. I tend to use 1/4 sheets(or multiple sheets of 1/4) to more accurately dial-in my desired temperature.

                                        Good color accuracy but (as with most gels) I find them too thin for my liking. I haven't seen any options for a thicker gel?!?!

                                          I use this product to help help convert the blueish cast made by my LED lights to a more incandescent color. It works great. 1/4 CTO introduces a very mild yellow/orange cast.

                                          You can't go wrong with this much material for this price. I bought this size roll to cut up for smaller gelling situations, and I may never live long enough to run out of it. The only con is that in the gear bag, they can get crinkled or creased, but c'mon -- even if you haphazardly toss them into the bottom of the camera bag and pile stuff on top, that's to be expected, and you're still never going to run out.

                                              Nothing too deep to say here. Got it to colorcorrect my flashes. Does the job, does it well. Cheap enough for what it is. [...]
