Product Highlights
  • One Size Fits Most Flashes
  • Peel & Stick Design
  • Eliminates Need for Filter Adapter
  • Reusable
  • Made in the USA

Large Sticky Filters for Flash are a unique way to provide filtration for your camera's flash. They are available in two sizes to accommodate both standard-sized flashes as well as point-and-shoot cameras.

The Large size Sticky Filter is designed to fit flashes as large as a Sunpak 544. The Junior size is manufactured to fit the smaller, built-in flashes of point-and-shoot units. In either case, both sizes are built with a wide angle diffuser which will negate the need to buy any sort of adapter. Just peel and stick them on your flash head and you're ready to shoot under a wide variety of lighting.  

Sticky Filters are constructed from a durable polyester. Tear-resistant and removable, the filter itself can be lifted off without any problem. These filters were designed with the digital photographer in mind and based on current indoor lighting lighting scenarios - as well as color.

Contains

Tungsten Bulb Filter
Calibrated to a standard screw-in type incandescent light bulb
0.5 Tungsten Bulb Filter
Allows a pleasing "warm glow" effect of the existing tungsten light source
Cool Fluorescent Filter
Calibrated to a standard 40 watt industrial type cool fluorescent tube
Unknown Fluorescent Filter
This filter is for those times when you don't know what type of fluorescent lighting is used or when there is a mix of warm and cool fluorescent lighting. It is also used for other types of indoor industrial lighting such as mercury vapor lamps and some metal halide
Hazy/Open Shade Filter
Outdoor light on an overcast day is blue/gray. This filter is used to warm up the cold looking background of images when using a fill flash. It is also useful for warming up the background of images shot in total shade when you have a blue cloudless sky. For example, shooting under the shaded side of a house

Filter Quality

Each batch of Sticky Filters is quality checked for color accuracy using an X-Rite precision color densitometer insuring batch to batch consistency 1
Each filter's color was determined individually based on modern indoor lighting technology and color
Custom calibrated for today's artificial light sources
Ready to use right out of the package
Reduces or eliminates the need for bounce lighting - No more green or amber backgrounds
Works under fluorescent lights, sodium vapor lights, metal halide and tungsten
Dimensions Large: 2 x 3.25" (5.1 x 8.3cm)

      I don't know what I would do without these filters for big, dark, tungsten ballrooms. No more orange muck in the background!

      I love that they are easy to peel of/stick on and you don't have to velcro anything to your flash. I keep the accordion-folded filter wallet on my person at all times while shooting, as it's slim and light, it's easy to make quick changes.

      The only draw back is that eventually the 'stickiness' wears out and I've lost a few of the filters which is why I'm back here now, to purchase more.

      Buying an extra set for my 2nd shooter... the disparity between having the filters and not having the filters is grotesquely obvious when working with a filterless assistant! :)

      I shoot 50+ sessions/weddings a year and had been looking for easy solutions for putting gels on my flash. I found these and thought it would be great to have and seemed easy to use. I used one filter perhaps twice and got tired of it rather quickly. It was a good bit larger than my flash head, which was weird for me (even on the canon speedlite 580ex). Then the second time I used it, I took the filter off and stuck it to something that apparently it wasn't okay to stick it to because it wouldn't come off and messed up the filter (I thought it was more like a sticky note as far as the stickyness goes... nope). For the price I was very dissatisfied because you can buy a roll of gaffer tape and yards of gel "material" for the same price and just cut your own to use over and over again or use and throw away. With my second shooter, we can have 4 flashes being used on and off camera at any given time, so getting enough sets of these filters would be outrageous for us. I just went back to happily cutting my own filters for 2-3 cents each.

              I was a bit hesitant to buy these since the price was a bit steep. I realized it was 2 filters per color temperature. Awesome! Easy use - on and off flash. You may need to experiment a bit with your WB on the camera before you understand how to use it. Small comment: I think I may have burnt a small bit of it with the continuous use of the flash - nothing big, but just left a small little mark on the filter.

                    Unfortunately "Graphxsounds" ran into a problem with one of our batches of Sticky Filters. We (the Sticky Filters guys) had stumbled upon a supply problem with the adhesive component of the filters and, while looking for a supply solution, used a product from China. All indications showed it to be a comparable product with what we had been using. Time would tell otherwise, as the China product has shown to be very inconsistent in heat tolerant adhesive quality. The problem was that a portion of the adhesive would separate from the filter and remain on the flash. We at Midsouth Photographic have since turned to the U.S. company 3M for the adhesive component and am very pleased with the results. We can now proudly say that Sticky Filters is a 100% MADE IN THE USA product and will stand behind the product 100%. If you have had similar adhesive problems with your filters, simply include this review comment with your old filters (all of them) and send them to Midsouth Photographic Specialties, Inc., 2703 Paula Drive, Suite B, Jonesboro, AR, 72404 for a FREE replacement. I have learned a huge lesson with this.....BUY AMERICAN MADE PRODUCTS!!!

                        This solves the problem of attaching gels to any flash. It offers a great many colors for any situation. That said, I am not sure what situations fit what filter, although I do understand balancing tungsten and florescent lighting.

                          Did a good job with color balance. Used for wedding, church was all incandescent, so filter worked OK, still fine tuned the camera K temp to give better tone. Reception was all florescent, it done good, but still fine tuned the K temp for best skin tones. But the problem I had was both filters used left the adhesive on the center of my flash (580exii). must have got to hot for the adhesive with the flash going off a lot. But I would still recommend, to get the best shots possible.

                              I haven't had a ton of time to use these yet, but in my initial tests, they work great. My only reason for not giving five stars is the price -- then again, the lifetime warranty to replace filters that have lost their "stickiness" may turn out to be worth it in the end.

                                Very easy to use and the colors are easy to see. The ability to get them off to the flash head was simple and fast. No problems with on and off.

                                  I don't know what I would do without these filters for big, dark, tungsten ballrooms. No more orange muck in the background!

                                  I love that they are easy to peel of/stick on and you don't have to velcro anything to your flash. I keep the accordion-folded filter wallet on my person at all times while shooting, as it's slim and light, it's easy to make quick changes.

                                  The only draw back is that eventually the 'stickiness' wears out and I've lost a few of the filters which is why I'm back here now, to purchase more.

                                  Buying an extra set for my 2nd shooter... the disparity between having the filters and not having the filters is grotesquely obvious when working with a filterless assistant! :)

                                    It was so easy to remove them from package and simply place them on the flash. The reusing is easy, the glue is perfect and The color codes are simply easy to use.

                                        Sticky filters make sense since flash and ambient light are different temperatures. The movie industry has used filters on lights for a long time. It's also great for photography. If you have an SLR camera that can handle high ISO these filters work great indoors for adding a bit of fill flash to faces without making the picture look unnatural or using high powered flash. Good effects can be obtained outdoors as well. The filters take a bit of getting used to and learning how to optimize your camera/flash settings, but with some effort it will give good results.
