    Default Which filters would you buy?

    Apart from the normal Skylight, NC, UV, Haze filters, just want to get comments on the filters that you'll keep or use for most of your everyday shots.

    I think in digital photography some of the filters e.g. Fluorescent are not necessary as you set your WB.

    As you can already see by the poll results... you'd be able to understand that most ppl will need a C-PL and NDs whether for film or digital...

    The rest are for specialized effects and needs like the IR group.

    Actually a polariser can function as a ND filter if it not intended to polarise anything
