    Modern SLRs and DSLRs require a "circular" polarizing filter since the
    old "plain" variety make the autofocus malfunction. Other that that
    there are no other "special" requirements for DSLRs. Good filters are
    multi-coated to avoid reflections which produce haze (Hoya calls it
    "HMC"). 30 pounds is a decent price for a multi-coated polarizer. For 6
    pounds you'll likely get a piece of junk. Unlike other filters, the
    polarizing ones are manually controlled, so have human factors
    requirements (no too tight to turn but not to loose either) which also
    have a price.

    it's actually the metering, not autofocus.

    anything with a beam splitter needs a circular polarizer.

    except that he said a $5 filter was better than a premium hoya
    polarizer. it's bullshit.

    I'm becoming increasingly tempted to nominate him for an AUK net-kook award.

    LOL. What makes you think that you're interacting with people don't own
    cameras or have experience? In my case, for example, I own three 35mm
    cameras - an EOS 1Dmk2, an EOS 10D, & a Nikon F-401s, with plenty of
    glass, & tens of thousands of shots taken.
