Hi all,

In Oct I picked up the Canon S90.
Great little camera,
At the time I accepted I would not be able to use filters with it, much to my pleasure Lens-mate has made an filter adapter, that will not add to the size of the camera for all practical use, unlike the tube adapters for G10, ect..

Have one on order.

I wanted to buy a Warming Pol filter only to discover that none are made in the 37mm lens size needed. Believe Id need to go up to at least a 49mm size and not sure if I could use a step up ring or even if Id want to on such a small camera.

So have decide to just try a basic Pol filter Tiffen, $18.00. If I don't find acceptable can always upgrade. Was not sure it is worth paying $70-$100.00+ for BW brand, and just stack a warming filter, under the Pol filter.

Q any recommendations on type/brand?

Been looking at Tiffen 81a vs 812 mostly to use for landscape pictures.

Dave PS I know I can just play with White ballance, but think Id perfer working with the filter.

Canon 40D, G10 and S90
17-40L 70-200F/4 L 50mm F/1.8II Speedlite 420 EX
Sigma 10-20mm.
Assorted older canon and sigma lens.
