The Honl Photo Color Correction Filter Kit is a great accessory for your Honl Photo Speed System light modifiers.  It allows you to match your flash's light output to the color balance of background lights, so that the room lights visible in your shots will look just as white and clean as the main illumination being provided by your strobe.

The kit consists of a pair of 1/2 CTB filters (to adjust a tungsten light to appear as normal daylight), two each of full/half/quarter CTO filters (which lower the Kelvin color value of your flash to match tungsten lights), and two full CTO + green filters (which match your strobes' output to the color balance of typical fluorescent lighting).

Instead of having perfectly-exposed subjects cast in front of dark rooms, or perfectly-exposed subjects with unnatural orange or green color casts upon the visible background lights, you'll now have the capacity for bright backgrounds with perfect color along with the easily-achieved perfectly-exposed subjects.

The aid of a color meter can help you choose which filter to use, but they're very costly and fragile.  The easiest way to achieve proper balance is to have a professional white balance aid (such as ExpoDisc), and first take a color balance reading immediately adjacent to the background light.  After setting your camera with that color balance, experiment with the gel filters a few times, examining the skin tones of your subjects on your camera's screen.  When you find which gel renders your subjects most naturally, you then take a color balance reading with the gel in place upon your strobe, using the gel + strobe as the lighting source for your balance reading.  Set your camera to this balance of color, and you're left with perfect skin tones and background lights which should appear quite natural.

    Color Correction Filter Kit for Honl Photo Speed System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Professional Looking Quick Attachment If you want quality, pro looking gels, then these are a good place to start. The nice thing about these, is that they can be used with other accessories, such as a bounce diffuser, gobo, etc. They are well marked, and the velco is attached well. Would I buy more? I'm not sure. At this price, they are pretty inflated. If you don't mind using gaffer's tape, and cutting them to size yourself, then that is a much cheaper way to go. If you are just starting out, on the other hand, and don't know what you want, these are pretty good, as you get a pretty good assortment package.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gels for the price If you need CTO gels and want the easiest way to use them then you've found the best product out there. I use them on almost every engagement & wedding shoot and they never fail to perform. They are cut perfect for any flash model it seems. I use them with my Canon 550EX, 580EXII and 600EX-RT. They work each and every time. There is Velcro on 2 sides which attach to the Honl speed strap which is sold separately. Make sure you get the Honl speed strap or these gels will not stay on your flash head.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from easy to attach filters This is a nice set of filters, easy to attach and labeled well. Stores nicely in Honl case. A little pricey considering you have to buy a separate cinch strap that, is a little high on price, in my opinion, since I found other brand of strap for two dollars that works just as well. Also if you put out a product and charge a premium, do not cross misprinted labels with a marker, that is what the Full CTO filter has on my set. Does not look right when that is done. Glad I bought it, but have a couple little items I might change if it was possible.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from get sheets instead These work great if you want an easy solution. Once you start combining them with a diffuser or a grid, things become a bit more tricky. Since these gels are designed to fit all sizes of strobes, they are quite big for most smaller strobes. This means that adding a Honl Grid becomes very difficult. If you buy regular sheets of CTO, you can cut them to the size you need and just use Gaffer tape to attach them. This also reduces the sideway spill of uncorrected light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time saver I used to buy larger filter packs and cut them to size for my Canon Speedlights, however this system has everything the right size already with velcro attached. At first I thought this would be a little gimmicky, but I realize now it's actually cheaper and much more time-efficient. Only downside is when I use with a 15 Lastolite softbox, the opening in the bracket catches on the corners of the filters. This isn't a huge deal, and I could probably trim them a little to fit better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick to apply and use While I am sure you could buy the gels in bigger sheets and make your own versions, this works well out of the box and is reasonably priced. For now, I am experimenting with adhesive backed velcro stuck to my 580exII instead of Honl's strap. It seems less bulky, but time will tell, and besides, it has no effect on the filter kit. The Honl case makes managing the filters easy.
