    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.

      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.

                  The possibilities with this are nearly endless. Great for stopping extra light spill, both on lights and around the matte box. I even used it to make a custom sunshade for a monitor that has lasted through multiple days.

                      The value of buying a longer roll shoul dbe obvious but in case it is not buy the bigger roll!

                      This stuff is excellent for focusing lamps and shading where you do not want light.

                        I use this to shape the light.I tape it to softboxes to control light. I use as go bos and create shade when needed.

                          I haven't used it yet, but I know that it is a must! It seems well made, and it would also seem that you can reuse it. By all outside appearances, it is a great product!!

                                Not much to say...it is black and does it's job.
                                Plenty on the roll, and you can re-use it quite a bit.

                                    If you are on a set as a gaffer you should definitely get some cinefoil! This stuff really helps get rid of spilling light!

                                    Exactly what I wanted. As a first time user, it was a little more difficult to mold to the shapes I wanted than I expected. I don't blame that on the product, but would have been good to know before starting the day.

                                      It does what it's supposed to do - blocks the light. Flexible, light and easy.

                                          I use this product with lots of different lights, and this product has not let me down. It does not get heated easily (though I don't use huge wattage lights) and it does its job well. It met my expectations, nothing more, nothing less.

                                              One of the most important tools a Gaffer can have. Excellent.

                                                Filming a feature film in roughly 2 and a half weeks. I'm on day 4 and I've already found a ton of ways to use it, or rather, I've found tons of places where I need it and it does the job. I can use it for lighting effects, to cover unwanted parts of the set or to cast a shadow. It's great stuff, and it would be awesome if it wasn't 20+ bucks a pop.
