Pro/i-light Gel Frame is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, not durable. I enjoy many of Lowel's products. Most of them can stand being banged up and shuffled around in the field. This gel holder, however, is one that doesn't stand up to being thrown around. The screws all fall apart too easily. I now only attach the gels to the barn doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I use the Gel Frame with my pro lights. They're great for light diffusion with the frost gels, and the ND filters work great too. Someone said it doesn't work well with barn doors. I beg to differ, I use the barn doors and gel frame together to control light spillage from the sides. I leave the top barn door opened a bit to vent heat. When working with nylon light tents for small product photography, the frost gel works great as a heat shield protecting the nylon from heat damage. Needless to say the frost gel evenly disperses the light across the fabric of the light tent as well. My only wish is that the gel holder was designed to hold 2 gels. It's not recommended to stack gels. I tried it once and the heat buildup between the layers damaged both gels.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for overhead lighting grid Using this gel frame instead of clipping your gel onto your light with clothes pins will make it less likely to burn through the gel, but it will also make more uncolored light leak out on all sides. Therefore I don't think this is very useful unless you are gelling lights from an overhead grid. In that case, the spill light will land on the ceiling. But if you're using light stands, you will have a lot of uncolored spill light to contend with and should probably attached your light gel with clothes pins to the barn doors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's all right It works, but it could be better: It barely or almost fits when barn doors are on, though doors tend to hit the frame. The arm could be another inch longer. Barn doors don't control spill well, and the gel frame isn't wide enough to really cover the light spill either. Clips pinch the gels hard. This might be fine if it's windy, but I imagine them eventually damaging the gels in time. Gels that are made for this barely fit inside the clips. Either the clips could be longer or the gels. The arm feels a bit soft in the metal department, and is slightly bendable, but that makes it feel like it's not study enough. I don't know if this adds much value if you're using barn doors, though I suppose it leaves the barn doors free, if you want them extra-wide or extra-narrow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Ok I never used these gel frames to mount my gels. I always attach the gels to the barndoors for quick and easy use. I figured I would buy one to see if I was missing out on anything but I wasn't. It is still a very functional piece and lightweight. It doesn't seem to secure properly to my pro light for some reason. If you bump it by accident or you're trying to rig something on the light, it will fall off on you. I also feel like I have less control of the light spilling out the sides with this frame mounted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well / good size Better than using a tota frame on a pro light. Small size easy to work with. Note: Does not work great with barndoors. You can remove the lower flag from the barndoor and it will fit on, but not great range of motion in remaining doors. IF you really need full barndoor control use the oversized tota frame.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to Star I cant say anything bad because I bought the wrong size.. I assumed they came in one size and never bothered looking at the dimensions so thus I came up short with this purchase... So 5-Star for the Product- Zero Stars for my decision to by a gel frame too small...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro/ilight Gel Frame Awesome product. You can beat a gel frame made specifically for Lowell lights. It's tough, portable and holds the gels in place even in a stiff breeze. I have 4 of these on an outdoor, College game day style set and they work perfectly. I love them.
