I have both a Sony DSR-500 and a JVC dv500 which need new polarizer filters. Since these are both manual focus do you still have to use a circular polarizer or can you use the cheaper linear polarizers?

Linear is fine. Circluar is for cameras with auto focus functions on SLR's I believe. Although possibly I am wrong...
