Overview of filters for use with digital cameras

This excellent tutorial on the use of filters with digital cameras from the always helpful Sean McHugh at Cambridge in Colour is another in the series of must read tutorials from CIC

“Camera lens filters still have many uses in digital photography, and should be an important part of any photographer’s camera bag. These can include polarizing filters to reduce glare and improve saturation, or simple UV/haze filters to provide extra protection for the front of your lens. This tutorial aims to familiarize one with these and other filter options that cannot be reproduced using digital editing techniques. Common problems/disadvantages and filter sizes are discussed towards the end.”
