When shooting with flash under incandescent lighting (a tungsten light 
source), reddish, unnatural colors may result on the subject background 
where the flash light does not reach. By attaching the provided color 
filter to the flash, automatic correction is made by the camera’s white 
balance function so that both the subject and background can be shot 
with appropriate white balance.
1
Attach the color filter.
 
Attach the filter securely to the flash 
head until it clicks in place, as shown.
 
Check that the display changes to 
<o>.
 
To remove the filter, follow the 
procedure in reverse order. Raise the 
attachment tab on the lower side of 
the filter and remove the filter from 
the flash head.
2
Take the picture.
 
Set the camera’s white balance to 
<Q>, then take the picture.
 
With EOS DIGITAL cameras released 
in and after 2012, you can also set 
the white balance to <A> for 
shooting (except with EOS REBEL T5/
1200D).
 
Check the resulting image and perform white balance correction on 
the camera as required.
