Light filters, however they also protect your sometimes very very expensive lenses.

I worked in Jessops many moons ago. I used to always try and sell a £3 clear filter to people buying SLRs and lenses for the very simple reason that it's better to scratch the filter than absolutely knacker your expensive equipment. It was a no-brainer to me but lots of people just left with their camera.

Yea have seen that many times myself. On the other side of the coin I'm not a fan of putting £3 glass in front of my £700 optics, but anything is better than nothing :)

Ah right, I remember seeing this type of filter but never knew what it was. Thanks

For people new to filters, don't confuse this circular polariser with a "basic" UV or protection filter that are designed to break before your lens does! The circular polariser is designed to give additional contrast and saturation to your photos whilst also removing reflections as mrsmcnicky has indicated... it polarises the light essentially! You have to control the filter manually by twisting it once screwed onto the lens, and I wouldn't suggest that it's a filter you want on 100% of the time... it's quite specialised. It does also block up to 2 stops of light from entering the lens, so you're going to be using slower shutter speeds all the time. Whilst this is fine outside, as soon as you go indoors this isn't always ideal.

Hi,

I recently bought a Canon Powershot SX50 and was wondering where i should get an adaptor and protection filter. I read there are some bad ones one ebay. I don't know what size to get either. Don't mind spending a bit more than "£3" for the protection filter either :)

You would need an adapter as you say, the size of the filter is then specific to the adapter you buy... I would look on somewhere like Amazon initially to get an idea of what's available, then shop around for the best price. Don't forget that you will potentially have to buy the adapter and filter separately...

There are a couple of this page, for example:
