    I am thinking about a polarizer filter for my camera. I have herd that they are really good and that they can see throw water, but I don't now about that. Is it true or not?

    Yeah polarized filters remove the glare on objects making them "see through". Its not magic, dirty water is still dirty, but the glare is gone. They also make the sky bluer and the grass greener usually.

    they also can make your picture come out clearer, if you look in to the color filters, they can make a differences when the photo comes out.

    polarizers filter out light vibrating in particular directions. This filtering reduces glare and can enhance contrast of certain things, such as white puffy clouds in a blue sky. The effect is strongest 90 degrees from the light source, so for wide angle shooting or panos, they can cause problems. Good luck.
