I would use the Hoya HD clear filters - are very very strong.....and I would seriously consider wrapping the camera body & part of the lens in soft plastic (Cling Film or Saran Wrap if you live in USA), that way you can still press all the buttons and then remove the wrap after each shot....just a suggestion.
Does weather-shielding include pasta sauce?
Ok....I just got a couple Hoya UV filters on the way.....but how is the best way to clean them...and how is the best way to clean the canon lenses themselves?
What do you use? What cloth? What cleaner?
