    What kind of filters would be good for a beginning photographer, while also taking into consideration that I am on a teenager's budget, and I don't have alot of spare cash laying around. And no, I dont and wont be using a credit card, so any filters that are cheap but not of poor quality would be nice. I seem to be having trouble finding good ones for a 58mm lens.

    Just get a circular polarizer.

    If your camera rotates the lens barrel when focusing, the polarizer may get a little annoying, but I agree as the best filter type.

    you may want to look into purchasing a UV filter as well, just to protect your lens.

    Hoya Filters are great quality for a pretty decent price. I got mine for 24 bucks for a circular pol. But that was at a mom and pop shop so i betcha you could find one cheaper. But definitly a circular Pol. is the filter i use most besides a UV
