Questions? Ask our experts:

The Nikon SJ-3 Color Filter Set allows for modification of the SB-900/SB-910's flash output, and to keep it matched to the background scene. This is especially useful for digital cameras where "white balance" can be controlled.

The blue, yellow, red and amber filters can be used for creative lighting control, and can add dramatic colors to the image, especially when more than one flash is used.

        Comments about Nikon SJ-3 Color Filter Set:

        Having looked into the item description I thought there are one of each of the colour filters. Ahem, not at all! There are a total of 20 filter! What a nice surprise from Nikon, considering my SB-900 came with only 4 ambient light correcting filters.

        Here is what you get:
        x2 ◾ FL-G1 Fluorescent Filter
        x2 ◾ FL-G2 Fluorescent Filter
        x2 ◾ TN-A1 Tungsten Filter
        x2 ◾ TN-A2 Tungsten Filter
        x4 ◾ Blue
        x2 ◾ Yellow
        x4 ◾ Red
        x2 ◾ Amber
        x1 ◾ Storage Pouch
        x1 ◾ a useful Manual

        Great set of filters to have for the SB-900, recognizes filters for incandescent and fluorescent light so you don't have to change the white balance. Other colors are fun to have for various effects.

          Fantastic set of gels

          By [@]

            Best Uses

              Comments about Nikon SJ-3 Color Filter Set:

              Pros:
              Comes in duplicate so if you are using two 900 Speedlights, you are covered.
              The gels have a digitgal identifier to communicate with the higher end Nikons and set the correct white balance.
              Fits right in the SB900 case without problems.

              Cons:
              If you fire hot and fast enough, it will cause the gels to crinkle, but that didn't cause any problems with the image.
              Costs more than I would've like to spend.

                Excellent easy to use gels. You get 4 of each. The only downside is they are a tad expensive, but worth it in my opinion.

                This is a great filter set to go with SB-900. The color filters add interesting lighting possibilities to any scene. They seem a little expensive but are specially made to communicate with the camera through the flash head.

                  Inexpensive way to better match the color of your flash and the background areas (where the flash might not reach). Nothing fancy, but does what's expected.

                    I enjoy having the extra filters for the SB-900 with the data chip inset on the filter. Not crazy colors just some normal filters with a few simply colorized filters.

                              In addition to providing spares for the tungsten and florescent gels that come with the Nikon Speedlights, this kit also provides red, blue and yellow gels that work great to modify the muslin backgrounds I use in the studio, where my subject is primarily lit via stobes in softboxes or behind umbrellas.

                              The gels tend to wrinkle, especially when the Speedlights are putting out full power, but can still be used with no noticable negative effects. When they do wear out, you have a total of four of each color provided in the kit, so you do have backup.

                                Been experimenting with these since the day they arrived. Adds a whole new world to light. Love it, can't wait to use in a actual shoot. Love the Blue and Red Filters.

                                  This kit is very good. Many options and colors that are not included in the SB-900

                                    Great little kit, some may not get used much but these are very easy to use with the SB-900, and are auto-detected on the newer Nikon bodies.

                                    Worth the cost over cutting sheets of gels...jury is still out on that. Definitely a cleaner solution, no velcro, etc...these would be a no-brainer if the cost was lower.

                                    Color correcting filters are necessary to match the color of the fill flash light to the ambient light when shooting. SB900 already comes with color correcting gels, and these are also included in this kit. There are also color gels included that allow different colors of flash for special effects.
