This foil is an absolute must on any set. It has so many different uses than your standard barn doors. Keeps the light and shadows where every professional photographer wants them. Totally under control. Can get very hot so caution must be used working with it.

I use this foil to make snoots and flags. The foil works well but it's thinner and a little less sturdy than I wanted. There's no place on the item web page that tells me the thickness or relative weight.

        It's a must have item for filmmakers. It's cheap, and it's something that can't really be "DIY'd". This stuff is the real deal and should be the only things wrapped around lights.

            I use this with all of my continuous lighting. It is an inexpensive way to focus your light and prevent spill into the lens or on your background. The foil lasts quite a while even after being bent and folded. I've been using the same pieces of Cinefoil for the last few weeks.

                    Comments about Rosco Matte Black Cinefoil (12" x 50'):

                    This stuff is fantastic, I use it for everything from extending my lens hoods, flags, light block for windows, barn doors, creating a stripbox, black background for quickie shots, and I've even wrapped it around my camera for a rain block. It's been one of the most versatile additions to my gear and at the price it pays for itself over and over. If you've never handled this, think of it as black aluminum foil, so with that you have the benefits of foil one of which is it handles heat from hotlights fine and very malleable, and you have the negatives such as holes and creases when handled too much. Overall though highly recommended if you want to control light which I believe any photographer would.

                      This product does what it is design to do. It simply and inexpensively blocks the light. I use it to fashion home-made snoots.

                            Works very well as intended. I old mine up and reuse it as regularly. My only recommendation would be to get a roll that is wider than 12", but that is simply a preference.

                                As an indie filmmaker specializing in documentary, I'm always interested in lightweight, easy to use equipment. This is a good buy. It's flexible, adapts easily to many situations, and is sturdy enough to, sometimes, be reusable.

                                I use this product in my home studio. It is very durable, good thickness and matte black finish makes it very useful in a number of studio uses. long roll makes it a good value for the dollar.

                                    Works well when needed. Most often used as a flag or makeshift snoot to focus light.

                                    You need this as a part of your lighting gear. I use it for video. I even cut out a a circle for my led lights to create a ring look

                                    Always keep this with me when lighting.

                                      This stuff is great, and it's not expensive. Really comes in handy when you're in a tight spot, and need a little extra control when shaping light. And of course, it's just the thing to keep light spills off your walls if needed. It's also light, and very easy to manipulate and shape into whatever you want.

                                        This is a must-have item in a shooters toolbox! It can be formed to fit any application and is immune to heat. From shading a viewfinder or a lens in odd-lighting to making a gobo on-the-fly, this stuff works. I always keep a few feet folded up in my camera case for emergencies.
