          It's hard to properly state how useful this item is. I initially had purchased a pack of 12' by 12' Lee Filters for converting tungsten lights to daylight, but found them too small for my current light kit. Therefore, after a (relatively) easy exchange process with B&H, I managed to make the exchange for the cinefoil.

          I've only had the opportunity to use it on one shoot so far, but it has proven its worth relatively quickly. I used it with a work light to craft some rudimentary barn doors. Not bad, considering the cost for a typical tungsten lamp with barn door accessories, although the cinefoil was prone to falling off continuously. Still, a worthwhile item, useful for any light.

                B&H was the only place I could get this overnight. It was a lifesaver and helped me create some great backlighting effects for video.

                  use it for controlling light, especially as a makeshift snoot, or to reflect off metal objects for black reflective accents. I use it in the studio for product photography and when I run out I will definitely buy more.

                      I am a huge fan of this stuff, it's so useful for so many things when it comes to lighting product. You can use it over and over before the black wears off. I always have some tucked into my camera bag because it's so handy, I end up using it when I least expect. It acts as a great lens hood if you need a little more to stop unwanted flare, it can be barn doors on a strobe if you're caugh without them. There's literally no end to how useful it is.

                          I'm a filmmaker and having black foil in your bag is just necessary...you're going to use it believe me! Especially when you are on a budget like me and when your running and gunning. You can create flags, snoots etc. rather quickly.

                            Cinefoil, where have you been all my life? I was turned on to Cinefoil when reading the blog of a photographer I follow. He had a small video demo-ing the Cinefoil and after watching, I went straight to B&H and placed my order.

                            I have made snoots and flags for my flash units from everything from cor-plast to foam core to vinyl. All work great, but take some time to make and can take up quite a bit of room in the Pelican cases I use to house my flash equipment.

                            Cinefoil is simple to make a quick modifier out of and folds flat and small when you are done. Items made from Cinefoil may not last as long as the other materials I mentioned previously, but with the 24" wide x 25' long roll, I am sure I won't run out anytime soon.

                                      Using this to make cheap flags. Durable and easy to cut. It works great to keep the reflection of my big octas and other modifiers out of windows.

                                          Great for a quick multi use cutter for all shapes and sizes. Very light and easy to rip.

                                              Sometimes you just need something black to shield light from a subject or a lens. This stuff is basically black tin foil. You can shape it around equipment.

                                                  I use this stuff to make custom snoots and light controls. Very useful in the studio.
