Polarizing filters are a very useful addition to any camera kit, it helps cut reflection and glare off water and glass and there are many occasions where this would help. It also helps when you are taking pictures outdoors as it can make the sky appear more blue which can be very appealing. Polarizing filters are a little different to other filters in that you have to rotate them to see where it is working best, that is cutting out the most glare or reflection.
