Hi guys...going on a trip to take landscape pics so would like to have a circular polarisers for taking pics with 'bluer' skies and cutting off reflection, glare etc. I am using Fuji S5500 and it has a 55mm adapter ring (is it also called a hood ?) in front.
1. Can anyone recommend me a circular polariser to buy for my camera? Like the Brand and model and price? Need to get it next week.
2. Regarding testing of the circular polariser, when we buy do we have to test it? I found this post by student which I think teaches how to test it without using a camera...
3. Oh one more...thinking of getting a UV filter also so need a recommendation on this too....but I think UV filter dont need to be very good right?(2) Take you CP, go to any shop where there is a glass and look through the glass. You should see a lot of reflection. Now put the circular polariser up and look through it and turn the outer ring. At some point the glare should disappear or reduce. Or you can take the CP to a pond. Again you will see glare. Do the same thing. Whether you prefer the pond to have glare or not is entirely your taste
