I have an FZ20 with a Hoya UV filter, and I also bought a linear polarizer for it. Now I'm buying a rubber hood (72mm). The problem I see with this is that I can't see how you adjust the polarizer while the hood is on there!

Actually, I just ordered the hood and then had the thought. I wonder if I should get a 62mm hood so it can go on the outside threads of the polarizer. That way I could at least adjust it. But I wonder about vignetting.

I am very new to all this and wonder if some folks can shed some light on use of a polarizer with a rubber hood. Thanks.

I reach in with the edge of my finger to turn the polarizer. I have a hard plastic hood...I would think it would be even easier with a rubber hood.

You can always fold back a rubber hood :idea:

How does your hood attach? Is it straight or flaired?

I don't have a hood (other than the adapter) but the FRONT ring on my polarizer turns. If your hood is a screw mount to fit the filter, you grab the hood and turn it. :roll:

If you're mounting filters to the end of the hood (big end), you turn the ring on the polarizer.
