I went to Hope Valley for a long hike today. Weather was great but not for shooting. Strong sunlight made most of my pictures washed out and hazy. And shooting with polarizer even in this bright light brought my shutter speed to 1/30 or even less. I used FZ 10 with skylight and polarizer filters. What f stop should I use while shooting landscape? All of them were shot with f:8 but this makes shutter speed very slow with polarizer. any suggestions?

One more question. This hike took me about 3 hours. After 1.5 my battery almost went dead. What makes it last longer, keeping it on all the time or switching on and off. Does turning it on and off use more power than keeping it on all the time?
