Default Polarizers

Here's a newbie question:
What kind of polarizer filter should I use with my Olies, and why?
Thanks!

C-3030, E-20.

I use a Hoya circular polarizer with my E-10, but it seems to warm up the images slightly. I've seen results from a B+W circular polarizer and it looked a little more neutral.

Hmm, a circular polarizer. Why should I use a circular polarizer with a digicam?

I recall that issue being addressed by an faq from Olympus... don't remember it completely, but perhaps a circular polarizer doesn't affect a digital camera's focusing and metering ability as linear polarizers do. Look for that faq in Olympus' website under the E-10/20 pages.
