I purchased the $200.00 IDAS LPS D1 filter for Canon T5i from OPT and I am concerned that the filter won't work with the camera. I'm close to returning it. First, it did not come with any installation instructions so I assumed i could figure it out. Unfortunately for me I could not get a lens to attach to my camera with this filter sitting inside my camera. Plus, I thought this item would "click" into place considering its called a "Clip In Filter" and it does not. It just sits in there not attached to anything, thus it will fall out if I hold the camera at any angle than flat. Plus, the glass filter itself wiggles inside the metal frame. I spoke to Trevor Jones of AstroBackyard and says thats not suppose to happen. Plus he was thinking I have the incorrect filter.
If any of you recognize this filter as usable with my full spectrum modified Canon T5i camera, please let me know. Plus if you have instructions to install it, that would be super appreciated as well.
I have contacted OPT once and have yet to get a response. Sent a second email out this morning.
I also have no idea what the little black FELT strips are for.
