    Comments about Rosco E-Colour #204 Full CT Orange (21x24" Sheet):

    I've just started using CTO gels on my speedlites at weddings. Churches usually refuse to let you shoot flash during the ceremony (quite rightly so too), but the after-ceremony portraits, inside the church can result in the yellow tungsten of the church lights, blending terribly with the cooler blue temp of the flash. It's also great for warming up my flash-lit models when shooting location portraits in low light! At last I can just cut off a piece of CTO gel from the roll, pop it into my flash head, and achieve the correct balance throughout the image!

        Not the best color to match with tungsten as I was recc'd. Go lighter.

          Comments about Rosco E-Colour #204 Full CT Orange (21x24" Sheet):

          My light was at the wrong color temperature so I slept in this gel and it worked perfectly. Made my light right. It put the light in the right perspective of color-tone and then I was good to go

            We were going to buy fitted color filters but they were expensive. This solution is very practical and inexpensive.

              Comments about Rosco E-Colour #204 Full CT Orange (21x24" Sheet):

              How can you complain with a well balanced CTO gel? I cut these into strips for use on my speedlites.

              When shooting indoor weddings with lots of tungsten light I get great color balance. I typically bounce a lot of my light off of white walls to create a softer light and these gels make my flash fit right into the environmental light.

              With the size and the price of this sheet, I have plenty of gel material to do a ton of speedlites or I can use the whole sheet to color balance a studio strobe. Easy investment to get the color right out of your light!

                I purchased a couple of the sheets and used one of them to trim down to filter my speedlights and give them a warmer look to my subjects with using the speedlights. I also have them going over my soft boxes on florescent lighting kit that I have to bring some warm color to my subjects as well.

                    use this to get your flash temperature to match your ambient temperature. Makes life easier in post production.

                        Perfect for color correcting flash to Tungsten. Cut a small piece and place over flash and set color balance to tungsten and shoot indoors.
