REVIEW: Rogue Flash Gels - Color Correction Kit

from ronmartblog.com, 11/20/2012

"The makers of the awesome Rogue Grid and Rogue Flashbenders have heard feedback from people like me who loved their Rogue Gels, but wished they had more of the gels we care about (color correcting) and less of the dazzling colors (which are fun, but not what you use everyday). The product is the ExpoImaging Rogue Flash Gels Color Correction Kit which contains 18 gels in 3 Sets of 6 Gels."

How are color correction gels typically used?

Color correction gels are used to improve overall color balance in an image by adjusting the color temperature of the flash to better match other ambient light sources.

To balance your flash to the dominant ambient light source in your scene:

* Use CTO gels to color balance flash to tungsten or halogen ambient light
* Use CTB gels to color balance flash to shade or blue sky ambient light
* Use Plus Green gels to color balance flash to fluorescent ambient light

Once the ambient light source is identified, and the appropriate color correction gel is selected, simply attach the gel to your flash.  Set the camera to the same white balance setting as shown on the attached color correction gel or set a custom white balance.

Flash pictures taken using an appropriate color correction gel and corresponding camera white balance setting will show improved color consistency and color balance.



How are Rogue Gels labeled?


We print directly onto the gels to ensure you always know what gel you are using.  Rogue Gels are individually labeled with the LEE Filter name of each gel and the gel’s measured f/stop loss value.  The Color Correction filters are also labeled with the Kelvin color temperature correction and camera white balance icon.

Rogue Gels are made from the world’s highest quality materials from LEE Filters UK, the world’s leading manufacturerRogue Universal Gels

What flash brands will the Rogue Universal Gels fit?

With a coverage area of 3” x 2.5” (76mm x 63mm) Rogue Color Correction Universal Gels are large enough to cover even the largest flash heads, and they can be creased or trimmed for smaller flash heads as desired.  These flash gels' innovative tabbed design allows them to be quickly attached to a wide range of shoe mount flash brands, including:  Canon, Konica, Metz, Minolta, Nikon, Nissin, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Quantum, Sigma, Sony and Vivitar.

How do Universal Gels attach?


You do not need to buy expensive or bulky holders, or use annoyingly sticky hook-and-loop to attach Rogue Gels to your flash.  Included with each Rogue Gel Universal Kit is the Rogue Gel-Band.  To attach, simply slip the tabbed ends of the Universal Gel under the Gel-Band to secure it to the flash.  The Color Correction Kit includes 3 Rogue Gel-Bands allowing photographers to color balance multiple speedlights.

1.  Attach Gel-Band to Flash

Pull the gel-band around your flash head.
2.  Insert First Tab

Pull one tab of the Rogue Gel through the band on the side of the flash head.
3.  Insert Second Tab

Pull the other tab through the band on the opposite side of the flash head.
