    Yep, should work fine. Just to clarify, that's a filter to put on the lens. If the filter will work with your camera depends on what lens you're using, and I assume you're using the 18-55mm kit lens.

    A lot of people would probably recommend looking for a higher quality filter, something that says "multi-coated", but I'd say this one will do you just fine to start.

    that is a poor quality UV. if you must use filters, then make sure you get a good quality one like B+W like bionic suggested. otherewise its going to effect your IQ and be more prone to flaring, ghosting and all sorts of other nasties.
