wat are the filters suitable for taking landscape, nightshot and walk around. please advice me. thank you.
your question very vague.

That's like asking: "what sort of car suitable for going to Orchard Road?"


I would say: The best thing you can do for yourself is find out more about the different types of filters, then you can make an informed decision about what filters you need. Please don't go around asking for advice like this. The answers you get can be misleading.

There are a few general types:

1) Neutral Density
2) Graduated Neutral Density
3) Circular Polarizer
4) Ultra-violet
5) Protector, Guard
6) Coloured
7) Special effects (starburst, soft-focus, close focus, etc)
8) and probably more which I've missed out.

No filter is best. Unless you have an idea for some creative shot.

just make sure it meet your needs and protect the lens front element.

If you asking what brand and model is good. to me its not so much concerned "which is the best?"

I got the Hoya HMC UV filter during my purchase on lens more for protection and knowing that the light transmissitivity of the lens shouldn't hinder/worsen my photos' IQ.

Thats the guide line for TS. TS need to do his/her own research and testing to find out what works best for him/her.
Brand wise B/W and Hoya are the most popular, Kenko is good value for money. There are many many other brands at different price range. In fact Canon also has it's UV Filter :eek:
