Sticky Filters currently come in two sizes; a standard one-size-fits-most size of 2" x 3.25", and a Junior size measuring .5" x 1.5" for point-n-shoot type cameras and other small pop-up flashes.
The standard size filter set is large enough to cover the reflector of a Sunpak 544 handle mount flash with room to spare. If you require a larger size please e-mail us with your request.
Both sizes incorporate a wide angle flash diffuser design built into each filter. This eliminates the need for a wide angle diffuser on the flash when wide angle lenses are used.
Sticky Filters are made of a tough polyester material that is tear resistant and durable. If the sticky surface of the filter accidently gets stuck back to it's sticky surface, (as stickers and tape sometimes do) they can very easily be pulled apart without damage.
Unlike other manufacturer's color gels, Sticky Filters were designed from the ground up specificly for the digital flash photographer. Each filter's color was determined individually based on modern indoor lighting technology and color. Other filter manufacturer's products don't always get you the results you are looking for.
Each batch of Sticky Filters is quality checked for color accuracy using an X-Rite precision color densitometer insuring batch to batch consistency.
Sticky Filters come in five different colors: Tungsten Bulb, .5 Tungsten Bulb, Cool Fluorescent, Unknown Fluorescent, and Hazy / Open Shade. The newest version (not shown) is also labled with white balance icons just like the ones found in your digital camera. This makes camera settings more easily understood.
The amber colored Tungsten Bulb filter is calibrated to a standard screw-in type incandescent light bulb. It is also useful for any tungsten or tungsten halogen type source. The .5 version will still allow a pleasing "warm glow" effect of the existing tungsten light source.
The pale green colored Cool Fluorescent filter is calbrated to a standard 40 watt industrial type cool fluorescent tube.
The Unknown Fluorescent filter is for those times when you don't know what type of fluorescent lighting is used or when there is a mix of warm and cool fluorescent lighting. It is also used for other types of indoor industrial lighting such as mercury vapor lamps and some metal halide.
The pale blue colored Hazy / Open Shade filter is used outdoors on a cloudy day to warm up the cold looking background of images when using a fill flash. It is also useful for warming up the background of images shot in total shade when you have a blue cloudless sky. An example would be the shady side of a building under full sun. The idea here is that the scene is primarily illuminated by the blue sky, therefore you should make your flash blue also then pre-set your white balance to the scene and shoot away!
