While not a FZ30 these shots are a good example of what a polarizer can do at both extremes. Shot with an FZ3 and a Hoya linear polarizer.



First shot with no polarizer or filters.

ggw...i think he is talking about rotating the polarizer. The line at which the most reflections are visible is image #2 and the line at which the least light is reflected is image #3.

All polarizers (i think) need to be rotated on the lens to get the best effect. Its different depending on the object and the position of the sun in the sky.

Correct...both the most and least shots are with the polarizer. I simply rotated the lens to change the amount of reflection that is shown. Polarizers can add or remove reflections depending on how they are adjusted, which is why I also included the shot with no polarizer to show the "mean" reflection.
