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.

Comments about Rosco Matte Black Cinefoil (12" x 50'):

Not a lot to say. When you need it -you need it.
The list is endless where some cinefoil can save your day.
One example is... it can be an wrapped to become an odd shaped instant snood. when you want to put a light shape on something like a bottle or some other product you can use it to shape the light.
Just right.

Comments about Rosco Matte Black Cinefoil (12" x 50'):

The black color is fade resistant and doesn't rub off, so its clean and easy to work with. The foil is thick and can be reused many times over. I carry a section, folded flat, in my roller gear bag so I don't have to lug around a whole roll.

This is a product for professionals, and is very useful in nearly all genres of photography (maybe not landscape.) Flag light from very small intrusions to very large ones. Excellent quality matte surface on both sides.

        It's a must have item for filmmakers. It's cheap, and it's something that can't really be "DIY'd". This stuff is the real deal and should be the only things wrapped around lights.

            I use this with all of my continuous lighting. It is an inexpensive way to focus your light and prevent spill into the lens or on your background. The foil lasts quite a while even after being bent and folded. I've been using the same pieces of Cinefoil for the last few weeks.

                    Comments about Rosco Matte Black Cinefoil (12" x 50'):

                    This stuff is fantastic, I use it for everything from extending my lens hoods, flags, light block for windows, barn doors, creating a stripbox, black background for quickie shots, and I've even wrapped it around my camera for a rain block. It's been one of the most versatile additions to my gear and at the price it pays for itself over and over. If you've never handled this, think of it as black aluminum foil, so with that you have the benefits of foil one of which is it handles heat from hotlights fine and very malleable, and you have the negatives such as holes and creases when handled too much. Overall though highly recommended if you want to control light which I believe any photographer would.

                      This product does what it is design to do. It simply and inexpensively blocks the light. I use it to fashion home-made snoots.

                            Works very well as intended. I old mine up and reuse it as regularly. My only recommendation would be to get a roll that is wider than 12", but that is simply a preference.

                                As an indie filmmaker specializing in documentary, I'm always interested in lightweight, easy to use equipment. This is a good buy. It's flexible, adapts easily to many situations, and is sturdy enough to, sometimes, be reusable.

                                I use this product in my home studio. It is very durable, good thickness and matte black finish makes it very useful in a number of studio uses. long roll makes it a good value for the dollar.
