Hey all!

I'm looking for advice on a high-quality, but affordable, kit of color correction filters for a few Godox V860II speedlights, as well as a Flashpoint XPLOR 600PRO strobe.

I know there are a literal ton of options and manufacturers out there, so I'm looking for some solid advice for good products/systems to invest in, from you experienced flash/strobe lighting guys and girls!

Thanks in advance for any input you may provide! :-D:love:

The Rosco 3"x6" Cinegel Swatchbook (external link) has a hundred color gels from different strengths of CTO, CTB, and CTG for the usual color corrections, to all other hues for special effects. It also has diffusion and reflector materials for testing before you buy an entire 100' roll. Best $25 you can spend for color management.

3x6 will cover the AD600PRO bulb?

OK, try the Lee Filters' Location Pack (external link) then.

If not, individual sheets of 2'x2' are $7. Swatchbook samples are directly usable with some standard filter holders—e.g. Profoto MultiSpot aka Dedolight—but are really supposed to be used for color evaluation. In commercial venues, you buy entire rolls. :)

Yeah, I'm a fan of the sheets too.

I have the Rogue color sample kit (gels made by Lee) that fit nice on a speedlight, but ultimately just being able to cover one speedlight is never enough. That's where the sheets come in.

GESWho, 1/4 CTO is surprisingly strong as a tungsten or golden hour correction. Two 1/8 will make a 1/4. CTOrange and CTStraw are both popular. I think buying quality name brand gels makes a difference.

Not in the same rent district, but Profoto bare-bulb systems have swappable domes which come in different color temps. The full range covers 900K: not enough to directly match tungsten but closer. The advantage is changing the color temp for all attached modifiers in the system right at the source and, being glass, avoids the hazard of igniting gels. :) I only regret there are no CTG domes to match fluorescents.
