Do you guys use any filters when shooting? I've been wanting to get the polarizing filter for my DSLR and just wanted to see if any of you guys have used them and how you liked em.

Badfish, always liked those pics of the Audi. Can definitely picture them being for a calender or poster or something.

The only time I use a filter is when I'm shooting somewhere my lens might get scratched.

UV filters are about useless with DSLR, however i use them to protect my lenses.

Im looking to get a polarizing filter though.

I've been looking around for info on this, but what's a polarized filter do exactly?

EDIT: I forgot to add that I got rid of the front black plate holder, dealer-sticker and dealer-plate today. I'll get pictures by the end of the week. I should have the XSi on Wednesday.

Wiki ************!



Quote:
<H3>[edit] Polarizer
Quote:

A polarizing filter, used both in color and black and white photography, can be used to darken overly light skies. Because the clouds are relatively unchanged, the contrast between the clouds and the sky is increased. Atmospheric haze and reflected sunlight are also reduced, and in color photographs overall color saturation is increased. Polarizers are often used to deal with situations involving reflections, such as those involving water or glass, including pictures taken through glass windows (this uses the phenomenon of Brewster's angle).
The benefits of polarizing filters are largely unaffected by the move to digital photography: though software post-processing can simulate many other types of filter, most of the optical effects of controlling polarization at the time of capture (particularly where reflections are involved) simply cannot be replicated in software.

The effects of a polarizer on the sky in a color photograph. The picture on the right has the filter.




In the first picture, the polarizer is rotated to minimize the effect, and in the second it is rotated 90° to maximize the effect - almost all reflected sunlight is eliminated.




On the bottom you can see how the window is reflecting the outside environment, while on the top the filter is turned 90° making it possible to see through the window.




Polarizers are often used to improve the appearance of vegetation. In this picture the polarizing filter is used on the left.



There are two types of polarizing filters generally available, linear polarizers and circular polarizers (or CPL filters). With the exception of how they interact with some autofocus and metering mechanisms, they have exactly the same effect. Both transmit one of two states of linearly polarized light. The difference is that a circular polarizer alters the light leaving the filter and entering the camera by using a quarter-wave plate to circularly polarize that light. This has the same effect photographically as a linear polarizer, reducing glare in the scene. The metering and auto-focus sensors in certain cameras, including virtually all auto-focus SLRs, will not work properly with linear polarizers because the beam-splitters used to split off the light for focusing and metering are polarization-dependent. Circular polarizers work with all types of cameras, because mirrors and beam-splitters reflect both circular polarizations equally.[citation needed]

Sick. Thanks for posting that. I never would've thought to use wiki....I don't trust it usually because most everything is editable (not sure if that's a real word, but I'm using it regardless), and all it takes is one 13yr old punk who wants to f-up the facts for fun and then you're screwed.

This was the first photo I took with it.

Hell yeah dude, it is beefy as all getup. From what ive seen in order to do much better than the 18-55 ancd 55-200 combo you really gotta drop a shitload of cash.

there is an 18-200 that is pretty decent, excellent range and a good walking around lens, but apparently yer better off swithing back and forth with the cheepies when it comes to quality.

Yeah, I've definitely seen that once you get past the 55-200 the better lenses start costing upwards of 1k dollars. As far as lenses go, there's only one more lens that I want to complete my current setup. That'd be a Nikkor 35mm f/2 prime lens. I want something that will be real good at night time.

I looked at the 18-200mm, though it is versatile it seems to me that the image quality isn't anywhere near as good as the 18-55mm and 55-200mm combo.

You mean the new 35mm 1.8 AF-S that is available for pre-order for $200?

http://www.camcor.com/cgi-bin/cat/id...3&fg=131012350

That will definalty be the next one in my bag

I just found out im getting a 2k a year raise and i got a $600 bonus. it is so tempting to get that 60mm macro lens. but i gonna finish diggin myself out of debt so i can get a mustang.

lol

I've heard those are nice. I can't think of a reason why I would need a $180 tripod though...I just picked up a Promaster6050 tripod for $13 at a pawn shop today and that will do more than enough for me. I just needed something different than my cheap-o walmart one.
