Hello hello

Recently I purchased MC Coated and Circular Polarizer made by Quantaray (Ritz camera). It very decent in price, but since I never used any other name brand filter before, I'm just wondering if Quantaray is ok enough for amature like me or should I just invest a little bit more for another brand? Also, I want to do some outdoor, indoor and night photography with my FZ30, which type of filter should I look into?

Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance

No problem all the polarizer from Hoya and B&W Quantaray perform the same.

Anybody have any experience with Osawa linear polarising or close-up lenses which I can see being offered on ebay at very reasonable prices?

No how much does it cost? Check out "linear polarizer" on ebay.

I use the 62mm Ozawa linear polarizer (purchased off eBay last year) on my FZ20 and like it very much. I can't find the references right now, but I seem to remember that when researching it before buying, I found that Ozawa was a supplier of Mamiya lens filters before they closed shop.

I don't have any experience with the close-up lenses, though. (I use Nikon 5T/6T.)
