I bought " The Photographer's guide to Filters " by Lee Frost .
The book is OK , but doesn't say much about Digital . It's for film cameras and was first printed in 1988 . Has very basic info on filters .
The book is 144 pages , mostly 2 pictures of same shot [ almost all different pictures ] - probably 85-to 90% of book is pictures with a little bit of writing to explain .
Not enough Don't do this or If you do this , this happens .
A few things about digital have been added BUT nothing really useful . I got latest edition 2006 .
Good bathroom or Airplane but NOT a reference book you will be looking up stuff in .
If anyone has a good book on Filters , please post it's tittle .

Re: Filter Book
In my opinion, the only filters you need to worry about nowadays (for general photography) are: circular polarizers, neutral density filters, graduated neutral density filters, and possibly a UV filter (depending on whether or not you believe in using one for protection of the lens, but lets save that discussion for another thread). throw in a starlight filter if you want to get crazy (or cheesy).
with so few filters, it might be a short book.
Maybe you'd have better luck jus searching forums...with the added advantage of being able to ask the "author" questions...something no book allows.
