Product Highlights
  • Includes CTB, CTO, & Green Filters
  • Adj. Flash to Tungsten Room Light
  • Adj. Flash to Fluorescent Lights
  • Adjust a Tungsten Light to Daylight

The Honl Photo Color Correction Filter Kit is a great accessory for your Honl Photo Speed System light modifiers.  It allows you to match your flash's light output to the color balance of background lights, so that the room lights visible in your shots will look just as white and clean as the main illumination being provided by your strobe.

The kit consists of a pair of 1/2 CTB filters (to adjust a tungsten light to appear as normal daylight), two each of full/half/quarter CTO filters (which lower the Kelvin color value of your flash to match tungsten lights), and two full CTO + green filters (which match your strobes' output to the color balance of typical fluorescent lighting).

Instead of having perfectly-exposed subjects cast in front of dark rooms, or perfectly-exposed subjects with unnatural orange or green color casts upon the visible background lights, you'll now have the capacity for bright backgrounds with perfect color along with the easily-achieved perfectly-exposed subjects.

The aid of a color meter can help you choose which filter to use, but they're very costly and fragile.  The easiest way to achieve proper balance is to have a professional white balance aid (such as ExpoDisc), and first take a color balance reading immediately adjacent to the background light.  After setting your camera with that color balance, experiment with the gel filters a few times, examining the skin tones of your subjects on your camera's screen.  When you find which gel renders your subjects most naturally, you then take a color balance reading with the gel in place upon your strobe, using the gel + strobe as the lighting source for your balance reading.  Set your camera to this balance of color, and you're left with perfect skin tones and background lights which should appear quite natural.

      The color balances work well in my use so far. They stick to the Honl Speed Strap really well: you could take pictures in a hurricane with no problem. You gotta be careful taking them on and off, through. They seem sturdy enough, but some sort of DIY reinforcement might help them last longer.

      These work great if you want an easy solution. Once you start combining them with a diffuser or a grid, things become a bit more tricky. Since these gels are designed to fit all sizes of strobes, they are quite big for most smaller strobes. This means that adding a Honl Grid becomes very difficult.
      If you buy regular sheets of CTO, you can cut them to the size you need and just use Gaffer tape to attach them. This also reduces the sideway spill of uncorrected light.

                I'm just getting started with learning how to use my Canon flash effectively, but I can already see how these filters will help create a more natural look to the pictures by matching the flash color to ambient light. Looking forward to learn how to use these well.

                        If you need CTO gels and want the easiest way to use them then you've found the best product out there. I use them on almost every engagement & wedding shoot and they never fail to perform. They are cut perfect for any flash model it seems. I use them with my Canon 550EX, 580EXII and 600EX-RT. They work each and every time. There is Velcro on 2 sides which attach to the Honl speed strap which is sold separately. Make sure you get the Honl speed strap or these gels will not stay on your flash head.

                          While I am sure you could buy the gels in bigger sheets and make your own versions, this works well out of the box and is reasonably priced. For now, I am experimenting with adhesive backed velcro stuck to my 580exII instead of Honl's strap. It seems less bulky, but time will tell, and besides, it has no effect on the filter kit. The Honl case makes managing the filters easy.

                              Very easy to attach to my speedlight using the velcro strap.

                                    I bought these gels to supplement my two Canon 580EXII Speedlights after reading several educational materials. They are well worth it, allowing me to modify the flash output temperature for color correction or mood.

                                      these filters fit the 580exii head perfectly and completely cover it unlike a few of the other gel packs on the market. You will have to pay a bit more for this though but it is well worth having corrected white balance.

                                        Would be nice if it came in it's own carrier. You need to buy a small office type accordian style folder to have someplace to keep them.

                                            I use these to quickly change my speedlite color temp to match my ambient light, or deal with challenging mixed lighting environments. They go on in a flash and come off just as easily. Make sure to buy the strap, I believe it is sold separately (which grips the flash very well).

                                              The kit comes in 10 different colored filters with varying degrees of correction, Simple and easy to use. Had no problems switching from one color to another because of velcro stick on.
                                              Would be more convenient if it comes with the strap on velcro that will fit all speedlite brands.
                                              Friends saw mine and now would like to get their own.
