Phayee adapter and a Hoya Super HMC uv filter
is it normal to get pretty frequent flaring when shooting outdoors at this setup ?has anybody else with a similar setup been experiencing the same?
would switching to the thinner HMC pro uv filter fix this?
Thanks in advance for your answers,

Amir

A Hama hood is what you need.:arrow:

I already have one
doesn't seem to be helping much with the flaring, no matter which position it's on.

Try dragging it behind a pickup for 2 miles. Works for me.:idea:

Would it be possible for you to post an example? I have that exact same setup on my FZ-20 (phayee + hoya + hama) and I never get lens flares that I can see.

Flaring never heard of it. Sounds like you thought the Hoya HMC was going toprotect you from using a lens hood. I use a Hoya standard, dual coated with a Hama hoodtotal cost $30.00. Money does not always make things perfect.

i also have the Phayee adapter with a UV filter, and use a Hama clone lens hood. no flaring. even without the hood, i only get flaring shootinginto the sun, but no hood and filter will prevent it completely under those conditions... a thinner filter will cost you a lot more money, but won't really gain you anything. have you tried a polarizer? that can often help reduce both flaring and excessive brightnessor blown-out images...

BTW, Panasonic, in their manual, states the pointing the camera directly at the sun can cause permanent damage to the camera.
