So I'm considering purchasing gels in the near future. I haven't used any gels and I want something that I can put on my speedlight when I'm on the go. I know many different brands make gels, like Rogue, Lastolite and MagMod just to name a few.
They have different ways to attach and remove the gel and related but the more important question I have is this. What makes a gel (or gel set) good and bad? Are all CTO gels and gels of a color, like red, rated to give the same color? Or is it really down to how to attach the gel to the speedlight?
This is analogous to What should I pay attention to when choosing a tripod? except dealing with gels in general.
