Use the ClearShot once and dispose, using the Clearshot more than once can cause the ClearShot to lose it’s retention and slide off the end of the camera, causing the camera to incorporate the plastic into the optical impression.
Rubber dams and clamps can hinder you chances of taking good optical impressions, main reason, the dam can change the field from your first image, then there is the interferences of working on the last molar and find the clamp is in the way. Think back to when you took a polyvinyl impression the dam and clamp are removed, polyvinyl material is dispensed into the impression tray, the tray holds the material within the walls of the tray and aligns the tray in the arch while it retracts the cheek and tongue (to some degree) Now think about the ClearShot as your premium optical impression tray, it controls the camera alignment, ambient light and isolates the area for taking great digital optical impressions.
You may think the Isolite system is enough for image taking, the ClearShot controls ambient light ,it also retracts the Isolite buccal flap which hinders your buccal image taking.
