We use a set purchased from Fotodyne which consists of a Wratten #2B
on the gel side and a Wratten #22 (orange) on the camera side. The filters
can be purchased separately; I think the price is about the same either
way. If you're in a hurry, a larger photo store will have them.

I hope this helps; e-mail me if you need more info.
