Hello! This is my first post here.

Forgive my lack of technical jargon, but I'm a camera noobie.

I was looking around the net for accesories for my S1 IS and found out that I can put on lens adapters and filters. I thought that I should get a UV filter since I keep getting my fingerprints on the lens. What do you guys suggest I buy, or should I get something else? What other cool accesories can I buy that might be useful.

Ihave a 512mb sandisk Ultra II, 2 sets of recharable batteries, and the canon case. So far I love my camera, and it's great for taking pictures of my newborn son.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks and sorry for the long post.

If you take your camera outdoors a great deal, then any protection for the lens is a good idea. Dust, grit, sand, etc., can work it's way into the lens barrel assembly (possibly) as the barrel extends and contracts, over time. Doesn't happen to everyone, but when it does, it can cause problems.

A UV filter is standard for lens protection. If you are going to be taking shots on water (lakes, rivers, ocean, etc.) or of reflective things like glass or metal, it's also a good idea to get a "polarized" filter - works the same way as polarized sunglasses... takes glare out.
