      Straw is much easier to deal with than CTO in certain circumstances. Nice quality gel sheet.

              When correcting a flash to tungsten, I typically use CTO filters, but I love the Rosco "straw" filters for warm sunlight effects. CTO in all its intensities looks a little too red/magenta for warm sunlight and produces pinkish skin tones. This and the 1/2 straw are always in my location lighting kit.

                  Item is a great tool to balance tungsten light. I bought this item not expecting it to be as big as it is. Its a huge sheet, and will last me a long time, if not indefinitley. Quality product, great price. Well worth the money!

                  Trying to match flash output to warm CFLs is a pain, needing a combination of warming and plus green gels. I didn't like the results I was getting with CTOs: skin tones were too orange and trying to correct for that caused other problems. CTS passes more green than CTO, making for less orange skin tones and more effective compensation for the fluorescent green spike.

                          By adding a piece over your flash gun, you can easily match the tungsten light color and avoid blue shade on your photo. when you use your flash as a fill light under tungsten lightning it is something that you need...

                                  Brings my camera flash down to 3,300K color temp.
                                  So either my flash isn't at 5,500K temp (maybe higher) or the spec is wrong, but to do dim tungsten lighting (2,700K-ish) it's not warm enough.

                                  As stated in other reviews, Rosco is the go-to gel manufacturer. This CTS is no exception. There's not much to say except Rosco has a well-earned reputation for reliability. This gel falls in line with that standard.

                                      I used it to balance flash with tungsten light and it worked very good.

                                        Great for use on hotshoe flash to balance lighting.

                                            I honestly haven't used this item as of yet, but I have other similar products by Rosco and it matches them in terms of quality. I use this with small flash and studio strobes for color correction. No complaints about this item at all.

                                              It came as a large sheet you had to cut but it gave me the flexibility to cut it to my heart's desire.

                                                I use this to color correct my flash with tungsten lights. One sheet will give you plenty to last you a long while.
