    which one should i Get??

    Also are filters essential(uv protection???)

    With a camera like that...the speed of the card won't matter much at all. I suggest the cheaper one.

    UV filters are mostly used for protection of the lens. If it gets dropped or whacked, it's cheaper to replace the filter than the whole lens.

    A polarizer is one of the only filters that you can't replicate with image software (Photoshop etc)...If you have one filter...make it a polarizer.

    I wouldn't refer to polarizing filters as 'tinted'....they will however block about one stop of light (which will be compensated for by the camera)...so I wouldn't recommend using one in low light situations and definitely not indoors.

    The can make a big difference when used outside, under sunny conditions.
