      I am giving this product 5 stars since it does what it advertises and is made well. Overall its just what it looks like... a piece of plastic that holds thin plastic "gels" over your flash head. I got this as a Christmas gift after sticking it on my B&H wishlist. I figured if I got it as a gift and didn't like it... no harm no foul. As it turns out I love it and plan to use it all the time. No more tape on my gels and cleaning off the adhesive on my strobes. I am using this on my SB600 for now.

      I bought this for a canon 580 ex II and it is just a little too small to fit perfectly. I haven't found anywhere online that shows what flashes this filter holder is compatible with but if I had known it was a little too small for the 580 ex II I would have thought twice about getting it. It is however a great idea and it does work on my speedlite; it's just not perfect.

        Comments about LumiQuest (LQ-121) FXtra Compact Gel Holder with 8 Rosco Gels:

        Anyone who uses speedlight gels regularly should not leave the house without this accessory. Attaches to the head of the strobe and keeps up to eight gels at your fingertips. Allows for quick and easy mounting of any gel you choose. What good is a set of gels if they're back at the studio? I have one mounted on each of my speedlights and can't count the number of times I've had an unanticipated need for a gel, and was thankful it was right there and easy to mount.

          Comments about LumiQuest (LQ-121) FXtra Compact Gel Holder with 8 Rosco Gels:

          Great for using to hold gel to balance light with flash. But if you put the flash on high power, and fire rapidly, you can burn the gel and the holder. My holder got a hole burn when using 1/4th power and fire 5 shots. So don't put it too close to your flash head. Also, it's small for the Canon 580EX II and I don't like to put velcro on my flash.

          Comments about LumiQuest (LQ-121) FXtra Compact Gel Holder with 8 Rosco Gels:

          Does what it says. This is an easy way to add gel color to an external flash. The holder attaches quickly, and keeps the gels organized. I'd give it 5 stars if you could reverse the way the holder attaches to the flash so that it doesn't interfere with the Lumiquest Quick Bounce I bought earlier. It's manageable, but not perfect, and I would have expected the designers at Lumiquest to have figured this out.

                it works well. comes with velcro to install on your flash, stores the films in the package that folds up nicely.
                only thing i didnt like is the films are thin and take time to change so you dont bend them. otherwise a 5 star product

                      For the price, it wasn't bad. I have already looking at replacment options, but will hold onto it as a backup. The primary issue is that its a little too small for a Canon 580EX II. Some light will get blocked and some white light will escape and contaminate the color when working in dark enviroment. I think for the smaller flashes, it would work fine. Its also an easy thing to keep in your pack for when you aren't expected to use filters. It might have also been nice to have come with a removable velcro ring to put on flash instead of

                        Simple product. Not sure if I would purchase again. The product seemed like a good idea at the time of purchase. However, if you are on a tight budget I think I would pass on this one. The product works as advertised. Basically it just holds a gel over your flash head. Looks good. Getting the gels into and out of the sleeve can be difficult and maybe a pain if trying to work quickly.

                                Nice add-on. A little flimsy made.

                                  No more taping gels to my SB-800s. This compact gel holder makes mounting gels easy, quick and secure. I always thought that stopping to scotch tape gels to my SB-800s in the middle of a photo shoot was a rather hack (and time-consuming) thing to do. No more. Using the LumiQuest gel holder is the way to go.

                                      I am giving this product 5 stars since it does what it advertises and is made well. Overall its just what it looks like... a piece of plastic that holds thin plastic "gels" over your flash head. I got this as a Christmas gift after sticking it on my B&H wishlist. I figured if I got it as a gift and didn't like it... no harm no foul. As it turns out I love it and plan to use it all the time. No more tape on my gels and cleaning off the adhesive on my strobes. I am using this on my SB600 for now.

                                      Perfect for the strobist kit for mounting to speedlights. A little difficult and slightly time consuming to quickly change gels in the main part, but once it is setup, it is slick to use.

                                      I bought it to use with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. It works perfectly in TTL mode on the camera. The FL-36R also has an optical slave mode that allows you to trigger it with a pop up flash, allowing manual wireless mode with any camera with a flash. You have to set the flash power through trial-n-error, use the camera's LCD to check exposure. Turning on your highlight clipping "blinkies" helps when it is too bright out to get a good look at the LCD.
