Default Choosing a Filter

Could anyone give me some tips on buying a filter (58mm) for my camera. I have no idea what to get, since there are so many different types. I think I just need one for protection. Thanks in advance.

Just get a UV filter for protection. There is nearly zero light loss except for the glass itself and it is cheap to replace. Go with a decent quality to get a good coating and good optical quality. Canít go wrong with Hoya and Tiffen.

Take a look at the "Filters" section of my Coolpix 4500 User Guide. It has not been updated for a long time. But, it should provide you with some ideas as the use filters is camera indepedent.
