Hello all,

i bought recently for my FZ-20 two Hoya filters: UV and Polarizer. I´d like to know if anyone can give me some tips of how to use them, conditions, settings, etc, etc...this forum is like an interactive encyclopedia with images - simply awesome.

Thank you all

Joao Pedro

A UV Absorbs ultraviolet rays at altitudes above 4,000 feet, but can give cleaner, sharper pictures with in some 300mm plus zoom situations. Its main purpose is to function as a lens protector.

I hope you purchased a Linear Polarizer and not the more expensive Circular, which is not needed for the FZ.

Polarizer are filters with adjustable, rotating mounts that deepen the intensity of sunny blue skies, increase color saturation, reduce glare and reflections on non-metal surfaces i.e. water and glass.


[align=center]The most effective camera polarizer position is having the side of you face directed toward the sun and the camera directed 90 degrees from that direction. Gradual turning in either direction will have a gradual loss of effectiveness and none when you reach 180 degrees. Here is a little secret. Linear polarizes are slightly more effect then Circular polarizer as the photographer approaches 180 degrees.[/align]
