I forgot to mention Mini-HDMI Male to HDMI Male cable that I purchased to connect the camera to my TV.

Thanks everyone for the great advice, but forgive my ignorance if you will. What is the difference between a linear and circular polarizer? What does the polarizer do for the lens?

Chris-

I a camera meters or auto focus through the lens, a circular polarizer is preferred. Here is a link to a good discussion of Polarizers:

The Zeikos CPL is a good consumer level polarizing filter. It does cut down on the light transmission, so it not for use in low light photo environments.

You can also get a tiffen cpl, not to expensive either. There are easy to take care of oppose to multi coated cpl that make field care very difficult if you do not get something like the tiffen HT series with the titanium coating.
