    I picked up a Quantary UV multi coated filter for my 300D and was wondering if there is another one that I should look to get?

    I like doing outdoor shots (day and night) and just a little indoor shots if that matters.

    Ya a polarized one would probably be good, I need to pic one of them up. If you like doing black and white I heard a red filter and ____ (i forgot the other) are good for making a bigger contrast in the colors.

    B/W film: Red filters give you a very dark sky.
    Green filters will help flesh tones look better in B/W.
    Yellow filters darken the sky a little.

    For color, polarizing filters will darken the sky depending on the angle of the sun. They also help with annoying reflections when shooting glass.
    Neutral density filters will allow you to shoot outside at wider apretures but so will faster shutter speeds.

    Close up dioapters will allow you to shoot close ups. They screw in like a filter.
    A star filter will give any point of light a star pattern.
    Fog and haze filters will soften the shot and are useful in portraits and some landscape work.
