      Comments about LumiQuest FX Color Gel System (5-Filters and Holder):

      I'm not pleased with this recent purchase. I was hoping to achieve a nice amber glow with late sunset photos. Instead, I spent more time in testing the equipment, constantly arranging the housing unit on my flash. I feel the quality is not what it should be.

          Awesome to get that certain color temp for your portraits. Small, compact and comes with a carrying case for your gels and the diffuser. The only thing I didn't like was the tape-sided Velcro that you are supposed put on your flash. Other than that, its great!

          Comments about LumiQuest FX Color Gel System (5-Filters and Holder):

          I recently used this to photograph inside a low-lit church with tungsten light. The amber filter did a good job of balancing the flash light with the ambient, such that a white balance setting of tungsten produced nearly natural results. Slipping the filters in and out, however, is a little difficult -- they are a tight fit. If you are going to be changing filters frequently during a shoot, you might want to take this into consideration.

            Very easy way to change the quality of the light from your flash. Will fit most flash guns and seems durable enough as long as you are not extremely rough with it. I think it is a great product for the value.

                Comments about LumiQuest FX Color Gel System (5-Filters and Holder):

                What does this give you?  Two things:1. A soft box that makes your on-camera strobe twice as large.  That makes your shadows softer.2. It let's you change the color of your strobe.  That means that you can change the white balance on your camera to make a scene blue or amber BUT flash your subject with a color that makes them the correct color.For example, you can shoot a twilight scene with the camera on Tungsten.  That will give you a velvet blue sky.  Put the amber gel in the FX and you subject isn't blue.  GET IT?Way cool.
