    One filter that is a must is the polariser filter (for an explanation, go here --> ).

    If you're not able to attach filters to your cameras lens then here's a trick you could try. If you have a pair of quality sunglasses, then simply take them off and use them as your polarizing filter. Place the glasses as close to the camera lens as possible, then check their position in the LCD viewfinder to make sure you don't have the rims in the shot. For the best effect, position yourself so the sun is over either your right or left shoulder. The polarizing effect is strongest when the light source is at a 90-degree angle from the subject.

    I found this tip on the net. Try it and let me know if it works ok for you::15: or if its a load of old tosh::14: Worth a try though
