These kits contain a selection of colour filters from the Roscolux range. Colours have been chosen to provide you with a wide palette for your creative needs. Strong and pastel colours are included to cater for different moods, atmospheres and subjects. You can use two or more filters together to create additional colours. The filters are approx. 85 x 50mm - a perfect size for the Gel Clip.
The Gel Clip, provided with each kit, attaches to your Canon Speedlite using a Velcro strap (supplied). The filter gels slide into a slot at the front where they are held securely by the spring action of the clip. Nothing is stuck to the Speedlite, keeping it in perfect condition.
Available in Flash filter kit 20 for a single Speedlite or Flash filter kit 40 for two Speedlites. The Flash filter kit 20 includes 20 different coloured gels plus one Gel Clip, while the Flash filter kit 40 includes 40 coloured gels (two sets of 20) plus two Gel Clips.
Compatible with Speedlites 380EX, 420EX, 430EX, 430EX II, 550EX, 580EX and 580EX II.
