Photography Question

Filters for indoor digital photography

Is there a filter that is best to use with indoor sports photography, especially under florescent lights? I shoot a lot of indoor swimming, and the colors seem flat. I'm currently using a digital rebel with a 35-135 zoom and a haze filter. I shoot at 800 or 1600 ISO to avoid having to use flash.

Michael H. Cothran   For film cameras, YES. For digital cameras, NO.
Just set your white balance to "fluorescent." Depending on your particular camera, you may have 1,2 or 3 different "fluorescent" settings. One of them should work in your situation.
