CLS clip filter for Canon's.


Recommended Posts

When I had the the filter removed from my Canon 1000d, I had a CLS clip filter fitted. This was mainly as I understood then to protect the chip. i have since found out that CLS means City Light Suppression 0and not 'clear' as I thought. While this is fine from home although it introduces a blue 'hue' to the image could I therefore remove it when I go to a dark site and would it help?

One caveat : did you have single or both filters removed?


If you had both removed you will need an IR filter in the chain else you will get star bloat

With the 1000d you can tell if only the one filter has been removed as the one left behind performs the sensor clean function.

Your cmos sensor will still have a filter in front of it so fear not.
