I've been told, by a professional and instructor, that that a polarizor filter could do some damage to a digital camera. He didn't give me the details - he wanted me to do the research. Okay, I've been trying but have found nothing that confirms what he told me.

Has anyone here read or heard about this? :?

Thanks,

Pat :G

I've never heard of a "polariser lens."

If you're talking about a polariser filter, it will not harm a digital camera.

You got me on that one. Yes I did mean filter - not lens.

Thanks for the reply - I hadn't been able to substantiate what the instructor told me - now I can let him know.

I'm new to the D70 and actually to the whole Digital SLR scene. I talked with a number of experts regarding a polarizer filter and they said it will work great with my D70, and bring out some nice deep colors of the fall foliage which it did.

Polarising filters have a great effect. You do however lose a few F-stops. Win some-lose some.

I'd rather have the picture and work with the F stop - and with digital cameras it doesn't cost to play around.

I'm wondering where my instructor got his information :?

LOL - Yes indeed, so would I!

As for where your instrcutor got this information - yes, that is indeed a good question. In fact this is not even a controversial question.
