Circular Polarizer Filter

Circular Polarizer Filter
What filter is best to buy? and most importantly to have?

I bought a Canon Digital Rebel XT and its got a 58mm lens. I am looking a lot of filters and what to get. Not the polarizer andt then a circular polarizer. Also, there are many UV filters. what should I get? i take all Class Pictures: indoor, outdoor, sunny days, dark days, and landscapes. To suggest a filter for each type of adjustment. thank you very much.

For color photography with modern lenses, which really does not take much of filters – especially for a Digital Camera. The circular polarizer would be the only thing might suggest. This filter darkens blue skies and take reflections from the water, so it can be really useful for landscape photos or anything outside where you want a greater contrast between the sky and the subject. Many people put a UV or NC (no color) filter in front of your lens for protection. I do so, but there is no real need for it unless you think that the front of the lens can be beaten, scratched or dirty. Certainly it is better to clean or replace the filter instead of the lens. That said, there is some concern that the maintenance of a filter on the lens can degrade the image quality, though perhaps only slightly. The two reasons for this are: 1) the quality of the filter is not going to be as good as the quality of your lens (optics) unless you get filters B & W or Heliopan German. These are not very costly for the UV and basic types. But for things like circular polarizers are very expensive! 2) Filters introduce some reflections from the front element of the lens and the back of the filter. The best multi-layer filters to reduce this. For indoor shots, what used to be common the use of color compensation filters that make electricity as color normal daylight balanced film. Now, all you have to do is set the appropriate white balance. It may still be useful to use a polarizer in if necessary to eliminate internal reflections. The colors are more saturated, etc, but remember that as a filter that will cut your light for 2 to 3 stops, which is not insignificant.
