It is not true for the FZ20, or for the FZ10. But it can be for some cameras, depending on their auto-focus systems. There IS avery accurate and complete explanation on the whys and wherefores of that in these forums, perhaps if you search for more "polarizer" threads... from about 16 months ago.

AS I explained already today on another post in this forum...That is why exist Circular polarizers... Cameras that have optical viewfinders like SLR, need a circular polarizer, (the reason isthe mirror prism) but is a less effective polarizer, every other cameras with EVF, can (and should) use Linearone's, they give better results and are cheaper. So for every FZ, linear ! if anyone here has a Nikon D2X or something like that...ok you need a circular...

I am soooo glad this thread came along...

I was just seconds away from buying a Hoya circular on eBay. I looked at some of those big name-brands like B+W. They aren't cheap!

Ken,

For me B+W is THE choice, It depends whre You live and where you buy...in Europe I Buy Online, B+W Linear Polarizer for 49€, something like USD $58...notSO expensive...IMO

Of course there are also traditional Photo Stores that ask 150€ and more for the same item...they are dificult to find...I don't buy there...

Regards

JC

Very neat effect Rainer! Seems to bring out the detail in the shadows. Jim

In a not-uncommon case of 'just my luck' I brought a circular polarizing filter only a couple of hours before this thread arrived. Although I've only seen it today.

I snapped a few sunset photo's with it yesterday and was disappointed in the results. There was a little more colour but nothing anyone would really notice.
