The most important thing to do is find out the thread size of your lens, your camera's lens thread size will be marked somewhere on the lens barrel or printed underneath your lens cap. This number is always preceded by a "Ø" (diameter) symbol. For example: Ø55 = 55mm lens thread size.
What is each filter used for?
UV filters reduce haze and improve contrast by minimizing the amount of ultraviolet light. Especially useful in areas of high altitude or snow, eliminating the undesirable blue cast.
CPL filters (Circular Polarizer) are great for removing unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as glass or water. Take richer scenic shots and notice improved clarity in distant objects by cutting through haze and increasing color saturation. This filter is mounted on a rotating frame allowing the user to determine the desired amount of reflection to be removed by simply rotating the filter.
FLD Filters (Fluorescent) allow for enhanced quality shots under fluorescent lighting. Bring warm, natural light to rooms that would otherwise be washed out by unappealing fluorescent lights.
What is the lens hood used for?
Lens hoods are one of the most important accessories you can purchase to improve the quality of your photos, and usually the most overlooked by beginner and amateur photographers. A lens hood can help prevent flares-those circles of light that can accompany images where a strong light source is just outside the frame. Lens hoods also have the added benefit of providing extra protection to your lens from accidental bumps or scratches.
