    LumiQuest FXtra reviews

    (LQ-121) FXtra Compact Gel Holder with 8 Rosco Gels is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its not actually bad For the price, it wasn't bad. I have already looking at replacment options, but will hold onto it as a backup. The primary issue is that its a little too small for a Canon 580EX II. Some light will get blocked and some white light will escape and contaminate the color when working in dark enviroment. I think for the smaller flashes, it would work fine. Its also an easy thing to keep in your pack for when you aren't expected to use filters. It might have also been nice to have come with a removable velcro ring to put on flash instead of

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good idea, too small. I bought this for a canon 580 ex II and it is just a little too small to fit perfectly. I haven't found anywhere online that shows what flashes this filter holder is compatible with but if I had known it was a little too small for the 580 ex II I would have thought twice about getting it. It is however a great idea and it does work on my speedlite; it's just not perfect.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea but a little small for 580EXI Great for using to hold gel to balance light with flash. But if you put the flash on high power, and fire rapidly, you can burn the gel and the holder. My holder got a hole burn when using 1/4th power and fire 5 shots. So don't put it too close to your flash head. Also, it's small for the Canon 580EX II and I don't like to put velcro on my flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well on my SB600 I am giving this product 5 stars since it does what it advertises and is made well. Overall its just what it looks like... a piece of plastic that holds thin plastic gels over your flash head. I got this as a Christmas gift after sticking it on my B&H wishlist. I figured if I got it as a gift and didn't like it... no harm no foul. As it turns out I love it and plan to use it all the time. No more tape on my gels and cleaning off the adhesive on my strobes. I am using this on my SB600 for now.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from just OK In general, I like Lumiquest products but this one needs work. I use it on a Canon 580 and it is a tight fit (will be too tight on Mk2) but the real problem is that the sleeves and gels are too flexible. It is frustrating trying to insert a gel into a sleeve that is bending and tight. You need to take the thing off the flash to insert it. Would be much better if the sleeves were stiff and the gels were thicker. Once in place it works fine and stores flat in a bag pocket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep speedlight gels at your fingertips Anyone who uses speedlight gels regularly should not leave the house without this accessory. Attaches to the head of the strobe and keeps up to eight gels at your fingertips. Allows for quick and easy mounting of any gel you choose. What good is a set of gels if they're back at the studio? I have one mounted on each of my speedlights and can't count the number of times I've had an unanticipated need for a gel, and was thankful it was right there and easy to mount.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has an optical slave too! I bought it to use with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. It works perfectly in TTL mode on the camera. The FL-36R also has an optical slave mode that allows you to trigger it with a pop up flash, allowing manual wireless mode with any camera with a flash. You have to set the flash power through trial-n-error, use the camera's LCD to check exposure. Turning on your highlight clipping blinkies helps when it is too bright out to get a good look at the LCD.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy To Use Does what it says. This is an easy way to add gel color to an external flash. The holder attaches quickly, and keeps the gels organized. I'd give it 5 stars if you could reverse the way the holder attaches to the flash so that it doesn't interfere with the Lumiquest Quick Bounce I bought earlier. It's manageable, but not perfect, and I would have expected the designers at Lumiquest to have figured this out.
