Colour vs Color[edit]

Can anyone tell me what the big difference is? I really don't think it matters. I've lived my entire life in America and know people who spell it both ways. I personally think that "colour" just looks funny. But either way, let's just agree on one spelling and stick with it. --Lekogm 22:32, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

I reverted the original edit by an IP for the general reason that American is not automatically "correct". After that, I realised that the article title is Color, and convention is to keep whatever the article was created with (the original article was entirely inconsistent). So I've reset it as Color for the majority of the article, and Colour where the article specifically references UK practice. This is the correct way to do it. If I've missed any general references, feel free to correct, but in this case, it is correct to use both spellings, depending on context. Bryson430 23:14, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
That's all good. I'm just trying tos tay in general how should we write "color." Upon reading this discussion this morning, I feel that I should just move it to the project talk page and we can figure out some standard there. --Lekogm 13:44, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Weeeeelll... are there any standards on what the "international" version is (e.g. what's used by the UN, etc?). I seem to remember having an "International English" copy of Encarta a few years back that was basically British English in all but name, though there were probably some differences (e.g. Sulfur instead of Sulphur, fetus instead of foetus & the like) that I didn't spot/commit to memory. Also I realise microsoft are probably not a go-to authority on this, but it is at least precedent. 82.46.180.56 (talk) 00:17, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

ND filters[edit]

Gaa, ND filters reduce the intensity in terms of [radiant flux] (watts), NOT f-number. f-number, or relative aperture, is a measure of the emitted cone angle. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 212.150.167.46 (talk) 11:00, 6 May 2007 (UTC).

huh?? (trivia section / hazing)[edit]

how can it be the "only bottle they have left", if it's a gel sheet? unless i've missed something in that they're stored in bottles or whatever. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.46.180.56 (talk) 00:19, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Agreed... plus, I claim that no one cares about this particular piece of trivia so I deleted the section. 68.178.19.224 (talk) 20:29, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I'm not necessarily proposing a complete merge here since Color correction seems to have enough material to stand on its own, and (presumably) includes techniques outside using gel. I put the tag up to draw attention to the fact that some, or perhaps a large portion of that article should perhaps be included in gel, since it is one of the primary uses of the material. DJSparky huh? 02:10, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Indeed. Color correction is a much larger and more general topic than color gel. This article could grow a lot. –jacobolus (t) 12:25, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
I think that perhaps the color gels article should be reviewed to ensure it has all the relevant information, but that the information here on gels should stay as it is a part of color correction. Inotherwords, I dont think there's anything to do other than (a) ensure none of the gel related info here is missing from the gels page, (b) leave the rather summary gel information here (it's far from detailed), and (c) expand upon the other methods of color correction, since it's a term that encompasses a variety of methods and needs.

As a professional lighitng technician, the two articles should not be merged. Color correction refers to the science of changing the color of light while color gel refers to the tool. Lightman2005 (talk) 23:14, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

CTO (Color Temperature Orange) filters[edit]

User:80.152.165.2 has recently edited Color gel, Color correction and CTO (that I'm aware of) such that "Color Temperature Orange" has been changed to "Correct To Orange". While there are many instances of the latter wording online, the former wording seems to be supported by major manufacturers such as Rosco. I'm going to revert these unreferenced changes. Please respond here before reverting my reverts. Thanks. nagualdesign 15:04, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
