Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Strobe-Sized Gels First off, I don't recall if this item's description says it or not, so let me point out: this swatchbook is HUGE. There are a total of 500 colored gels here (including approximately 20 textured gels and paper samples), each with an accompanying info sheet (sodium to tungsten correction, fluorescent to daylight correction, etc). I would recommend cutting off the plastic pin holding the gels together, picking out a small number of gels that you use frequently and keeping them in a small plastic case, or doing what I did and separating them by color and attaching small metal ball chains for easy access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant Beat The Price I use this to choose Gels in both my photography and professional stage lighting.Although you can often get Rosco to give you these for free... it is always a pain to make it happen. For under $ I am happy to pay for it and save myself the headache. Especially since EVERYWHERE else i have seen these for sale they are double the price of B&H.I Have had my original Swatch Book for over 10 years and use it daily. It is still holding together. although the screw holding it together is now glued in place.I recently bought a new one because new diffusers and colors where added. As far as i can tell it is exactly the same quality as my 10 year old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Try before you buy There are a gajillion Rosco colored filters (available as Roscogel and Cinegel). This book allows you to try them before buying large sheets for your flash filters. Specifically, it allows you to determine how deep a shade of CTO your flash can use before you run out of horsepower for illuminating your scenes. It also allows you to see that there isn't an appreciable (detectable?) difference between the mechanical integrity of the Roscogel and Cinegel. The 3x5 Cinegel book has more of the scrims and reflectors for movie lighting, whereas the Roscogel book only has the transmission films (sized for standard speedlights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap Preview i recently purchased this block o swatches. and It is a block. I was surprised by just how many different gels you could actually get. I had initially purchased this product for use with my lighting kit a canon 430EX and 2 580EXII in hopes of getting some perfectly sized pre cut gels for color correction and effects. Unfortunately the swatch book is only big enough for use with the smallest flash units the 430EX being the largest. That being said the swatch book is a great sample when used to order the larger sheets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of colors! I bought this to try creating some colored light with my small strobe camera flashes, a Vivitar 285HV specifically. They work pretty well, but aren't quite as tall as the flash head, so there is a little gap around them. There are tons of colors, and also some reflectors and diffusion fabric samples. I would recommend removing the plastic post that holds them together, and using a large binder clip to keep them together. This makes it easy to remove the one you want to try, but keeps them together for storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Selection. I learned of the product from ... it turns out that you can use these sample swatchbook's as filters for you Nikon SB-800 or any simaliar size speedlight. It is a good cheap alternative to the Nikon SJ-1 Gel Kit. There is a pretty good selection of colors. This item is always sold out so be sure to sign-up ot be notified when it is in stock. I have seen them sell out in a matter of hours, so be sure to buy asap after getting notice it is in stock. The max you can buy is 5 and at $ you might as well, ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hundreds of opportunities for pennies How can you beat this? Rosco's entire line of gels, CTOs and diffusers in your pocket? Or camera bag. So there's a hole. I just do my best to minimize the exposure of the hole over my flash and haven't noticed a problem yet. Use the 1/4 CTO orange to warm flesh tones in the shade on a sunny day. Every color in the rainbow and more for background effects. The possibilities are endless. And all for less than a latte. You really can't go wrong.I went to ..., in the lighting section where they have parts and replacements and grabbed (purchase, more like) a length (3 ft, I believe) of ball chain that came with about 5 clasps. I cut it to length, took out the rivet on the booklet and put all the gels on the ball chain for easy access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Experimenting I got this swatchbook to play around with color mixing by merging toned black and white images. I made myself a cover for one of my lenses with a slot that these filters slide into, and I've learned a lot about how specific wavelengths of light mix together to form the images we see. The size is about right to cover a flash unit, which could be used to add interesting texture to photos. May be a little on the small side for any other uses, though. One of the great features is that each film comes with a chart showing the transmission vs. wavelength, allowing selection of specific colors.
