    If you shoot daylight balanced C-41 indoors without corrective filtration, where it is usually best off to overexpose by 2/3 of an F-stop, you'll get negatives that (at least w/ my equipment) require the use of cyan filtration. With standard exposures though, no I never use it. Ditto to the above statements about it only being necessary to use 2 filters at a time.

    The cyan filter is very useful for adding neutral density so that the sweet f-stop on the enlarging lens can be used at reasonable exposure times.

    I also use quite a bit of initial neutral density when printing VC B&W materials with a dichroic colorhead. That way I can add or subtract filters to adjust the contrast.

    There are times when it comes in very handy apart from color balancing.
