Re: circular vs standard polarizing filter

There is a good explanation of the difference between Linear and Circular polarizer from the following site:

Can anyone recommend which polarizing filter is best for the A1 -
circular or standard and why? Thanks

A linear one would be sufficient unless you will also use it with a
SLR or DSLR camera.

That's interesting, because I've always used a standard one with my
SLRs. That's what I'm curious about, seeing as they sell the two
types for digital cameras. I've tried to do an Internet search, but
have not come up with an explanation. What's the difference between
the two (other than one costs more)?
