Buy smart, Buy once

Make sure that you buy a cir­cu­lar po­lariser rather than a lin­ear po­lariser. Both are round in shape but block po­larised light in dif­fer­ent ways – for dig­i­tal pho­tog­ra­phy, only a cir­cu­lar po­lariser will work. Cir­cu­lar po­lar­is­ing fil­ters can be ex­pen­sive, cost­ing any­thing from £ 20 up to £ 250 and above, de­pend­ing on the size and brand that you go for. As you’re likely to have sev­eral lenses, pos­si­bly with dif­fer­ent fil­ter threads, it’s go­ing to be ex­pen­sive if you buy a fil­ter size for each lens. In­stead, buy a fil­ter to match your largest fil­ter thread and then pick up more cost- ef­fec­tive step- up ring adap­tors so you can fit the fil­ter to the smaller lens threads.
