Default CP950 and polarizing filter

Can anyone share experiences using a circular polarizing filter with a CP950? Did photos taken in REC-A compensate adequately? etc...
Thanks,
Dan

The "Filters" section of my 950/990/995/4500 user guide has the details. The camera, either in the REC-A or REC-M mode, will compensate properly. However, I'd like to mention one important issue: not all 28mm polarizers are created equal. Some of them will cause vignetting. Therefore, do a testing before you buy one. A safe way is to use a larger polarizer (e.g., a 28-37mm step-up ring with a 37mm polarizer, or a Nikon UR-E7 ring with a 46mm polarizer). In fact, larger size polarizer are sometimes cheaper.

Default follow-up to cp950 cp filter

I'e taken a few test shots today to see effects. See attached photos. It's hard to see the difference here. I'll need to look at the aquarium-type shots.
Max filter:

No filter:

My goal is to do landscape photos at dawn or dusk..., preferrably in panorama
