Ok I want to buy some gels but have no clue as to what brand is most used by you guys
here on the forum also is there a device that holds these gels in place
or does it come with the gel's? So what do you use (gels)? and how do you keep them in place on the 580 or 430 exii's?
thanks again for any intel..
For small speedlights like a 580 or 430, the Roscolux gels are perfect, and you can get a pack of about a hundred colors for just a few dollars. I think with shipping I paid about $ 10 total.
I've tried everything from tape, to velcro tabs, to elastic bands, to hard acrylic "L" shaped holders, and the best holders so far are the ones I got for free from another POTN member here. There's a waiting list for the free holders until he gives them all away, so you may want to check it out right away and get on the list.
