    Searched, to no avail.
    Where do you "guys" normally
    buy your filters?
    Have D-40 on the way from
    Adorama and ordered a used filter
    to protect the lens til I decide
    what to get.
    Like what I see with polarized ones.
    Will be shooting alot of different things. Outdoors mostly.
    Is there a list describing them?
    You're preferences?
    Thank's for all your continued help.
    Hope to be putting up some captures
    for your critique soon.
    Thank's again, Craig.:wink:

    Filters are not specific to cameras. Just make sure to get filters that will fit the thread diameter of the lens that you will be using.

    I really only use polarizer filters these days. Most of the other filters are much easier to duplicate with Photoshop (or other software).

    You will find some information regarding lens filter from the following link

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lens_filter


    From that link, you should find some of the popular lens filters and what they are used for.

    as has been said, filters are fitted to each lens (diameters can be different from lens to lens). so if you're searching on amazon, for instance, you would search "58mm(diamter) circular polarizer"
