    Default polarizer size/brand for 28mm lens without vignetting

    as titled.

    also, anyone tried holding the polarizer infront of the camera taking photos, did it go well?

    that was a quick reply. thanks!

    If the camera dosent have any thread? so would it be correct to say, that the smaller the polarizer the less incidence of vignetting?

    if ur using a 1.3/1.5/1.6x crop camera, i think u can safely stack 2 filters on top of each other without vignetting, even with a 18-55mm kit lens.

    u can do the same for FF cameras for as long as it is not wider than 28mm. 24mm will start to vignette

    No thread??? I take it you might mean a point & shoot camera? I have done that often with my point & shoot SonyS70 & Nikon 990. I have had my SLRs' polarisers for years and to actually buy one to fit those P&S camera was just not worth it...so I would hold my 52mm polariser to the front of my P&S.

    The only problem you will face is that, you can't hardly see or adjust the effect properly since most P&S camera uses a difference viewer to the actual lens that capture the image( at least when I was using those camera in my time) But as more P&S camera starts to use the CCD to send the view to you LCD screen and stop including a real viewfinder you might be able to use that LCD screen to monitor the effects instead. But personally I think the LCD screen is too small to show you much details to fine tune the polariser plus too small let you focus your image 100% sharp where you want it. But yes..it can be done... holding the polariser to the P&S camera's lens. To manual adjust, hold the polariser to your eye and same height as your lens. Adjust the effect, then transfer the filter to your lens heheh...troublesome I know...

    How bout using a normal CP at 10mm + 1.6x FOV? Will the vignett be very obvious? Any sample from anyone out there?
