    I need another ream of them and I don't want to have to apply to fifteen places just to get one of them to actually ship one.

    And I don't really want to have to pay 7.50 in shipping from roscolux...

    Anyone know where I could just pick one up, or know of a source that ships them out pretty reliably??

    how many of the gels do you really use? Just go buy a sheet of each gel you need, they really don't cost that much.

    I did this too to get a set of color gels and color correction gels (two full swatches)

    but not a camera store, camera stores will charge like $40 just for 3 speedlite sized gels which is ridiculous

    I went to a theatrical store, I checked the phone book and found a bunch but I guess thats because I live in hollywood north (vancouver)

    They had quite a few swatches to give out, I'll probably go back there if I actually need to buy any for my alienbees cause they were very nice there

    I just want to dick around with some off camera flash colors mostly. I've got all the correction gels that I need and use regularly.
