I have an FZ10 with a polarizer and a UV filter attached. I just got the polarizer a few days ago and had some general questions, it is a circular polarizer from Hoya.

1. I don't see the changes reflected on the LCD when turning the filter in Auto mode on the camera.

2. There is a line on the filter ring, what is this used for?

3. Do I always have to remove the polarizer when not shooting pictures of the sky/water or can I spin it a certain way so there is no polarization.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

You need to make the 1/2 press of the shutter to do the metering and then turn the filter

It should point towards the sun

Yes remove it as it blocks about 2 stops of light

These answers were just my opinion and I have been wrong before

The polarizer must be used in Manual mode or, as correctly suggested by Genece, turning it after the metering has been done with half shutter press: if you use it in P-mode, this will try to compensate for the darker environ with a lower speed, and it would thuse be useless..

I was looking for an easier way than doing the two-step process--switching to manual mode, setting the CPL, then back to P mode.
