GamColor 840 Steel Blue Gel Filter
Item #: S-022599
List Price: $6.95

The GAM Products GamColor 840 Steel Blue Gel Filter is deep dyed polyester coated that is linked into the polyester, not surface coated. Polyester is the most durable of the expendable color filter materials. Polyester and polycarbonate are the two most widely used materials for color filters. They have replaced gelatin and acetate which were used for many years. The new materials have been chosen because they are more durable. Of the two, polyester is the most durable and has been selected as the base film for GamColor filters.

Once the color is placed into the film it becomes difficult for color to evaporate or depart from the polyester base. In contrast, surface coated polyesters are more susceptible to fading when exposed to heat since the coating is merely placed on the surface and can readily evaporate.

Color correction filters are used to change the color temperature of a light source to balance your lighting situation. CTOs are used to change or modify sunlight coming through a window to match an incandescent light source. CTBs are used to change an incandescent light source to match daylight coming through a window. Neutral Density filters (ND) reduce the light without shifting the color temperature. GAM offers five steps of Neutral Density plus three combinations CTO and Neutral Density filters. 

Whether for cinematic, photographic or video productions, these filters offer long-life, reliability and the highest standards of design.
