I am using this gel to convert my incandescent 2k Lowel softbox to daylight. Sometimes I need a fill for an interview outside in the shade or direct sunlight. I also shoot a lot inside a sports facility that has daylight coming in through garage doors. This sheet is large enough to clip over my softbox and change the 3,200 to 5,600. This allows me to match the daylight color of the existing light for my interviews or training using my DSLR camera.

I put it in the gel filter screen of my Arri 650 and it melted during my 3 hour shoot. If I clothespin it to the barn doors it stays cool enough put looks a little less professional to outsiders. Use with care. It changes tungsten to white ust like I want it to but can't take the heat from a hot Fresnel.

Comments about Rosco # 3202 Full Blue CTB Color Conversion Gel Filter (20x24" Sheet):

If you need to match tungsten with daylight lights then you need it. We have a smaller tungsten light so we bought this larger gel and cut it into small pieces to make it easier to handle and incase one piece got damaged.

    Comments about Rosco # 3202 Full Blue CTB Color Conversion Gel Filter (20x24" Sheet):

    Being a fellow who loves tungsten, one still cannot go about life expecting to be in the same lighting situation every day, especially on a lower budget. When I do not have HMIs and have to mix daylight with tungsten instruments or have practical lights in a shot that need to not be ORANGE AS HELL, ROSCO gels are the fast, ANALOG, old-school solution. Every gaffer should have SOME in his/her kit.

      I use this to gel my Impact LB-QL300 Luxbanx Duo Softbox (16 x 22"). This helps when I'm shooting indoors and have a big window to fight with.

                  These CTB's turn tungsten into 5600 kelvin light. Exactly what they are meant to do. I have been using Rosco gels for a while and they are great quality. I have yet to have one melt.

                      I recently took a position at a church as the Media/Tech Director. As with most churches, the equipment was mostly outdated and set up improperly. With little budget to speak of, I had to make an old truss full of Par64 cans work for our move into HD video. These gels saved the day! They turned a stage full of orange people into nice white, crisp color corrected goodness. We used a combination of 3/4 and Full Blue CTB gels to set us up for a slow transition to LED's over the next few years.

                          We used these filters to cover the recessed lights in an event space to cast and ocean blue light in the room. It worked really wee for this purpose without making to room too dark. I would use this product again.

                                Matching tungsten to daylight or 56K sources is no problem with some CTB.

                                    Always get my correction gel from Rosco. 3202 is as it ever was. Corrects nicely. No complaints.
