    I'm neither!
    I used one on a lens with a scalloped hood. I turned the hood round and used 2 rubber bands which hooked round the petals. As long as its in contact with the rim of the lens, no stray light can get in the side and cause flare.
    Make a little cover for the eyepiece if you don't have a built in one, as the extra light can cause exposure errors.

    It can be quite hard to get rid of the colour cast completely, but I have used one ok. Shoot RAW and you will have more adjustment at the processing stage, or use it as black and white.
    You might be able to get a colour filter to counteract the colourcast. My filter was a strong green/yellow.

    Experimentation is the key!

    experiment with the white balance to adjust some of the colour cast then do the rest in PS or similiar.
    good advise from sooty.

    Use no filter at all, take a series of pictures then stack them.
