    does anyone use clear lens instead to protect the cam lens? i guess it's probably a waste of money.

    So UV filter should be used instead? Even in indoor shoots, UV is still acceptable?

    Yes, UV is still acceptable indoors. Very few people buy the NC filters anyway.. Since UV performs the same job.. A good UV filter will not add any colour cast.

    UV should be neutral on digital cameras. I think I read somewhere that CCD/CMOS sensors don't pick up UV as much as infra-red.

    And UV is NOT blue, it's beyond the visible range.
    UV filters were more important in the days of film cos the blue layer in film reacts to UV rays too.
