    Hi
    I have the Hoya 55mm Circ Polariser which I bought for my FZ5.
    I actually used it once to test the phone and it has been in storage since.
    Bought from MS Color for $54 brand new . If you are interested, do PM me and we can discuss a deal.

    55mm for cpl is usually priced around 35-40 (hoya) unless you are getting 2h

    for me, i'm using a linear polarizer with mine, but it's just that the effects of it don't appear to be really obvious. there's just a slight difference when i turn the thing, and i'm not too sure if i'm using it properly. are there any ways to make the sky like a very much deeper blue, or is it the polarizer itself which decides the intensity?

    i can't find the receipt but the price tag on the box is indicated as $54.
    I may have bargained it down a little but can't remember how much but definitely not $30. I will only let go at around $40...otherwise better to keep it.

    alternatively, daxiong, you can meet up with metallilan and have him bring you to the place that sells it for $30 as that's a pretty good deal...circ polarisers aren't that cheap.... or go for the lesser known brands..I doubt you can tell the difference...
    cheers

    Am i correct?

    Does it means that for outdoor usage we only use it around 12 pm to 4pm? Normally under what circumstance u will use it?

    hee..... pai say pai say .. lots of stupid questions...
    The polarizing effect is maximum only at certain angle to the sun....usually perpendicular to the sun path.....make a gun shape with your finger, with thumb pointing to sun. Where your finger point is where the best polarizing effect occurs....or so I read in photography books.
