Canon S1 and a polarising lens..do they work?
I recently treated myself to a circular polarising Lens from Jessops. And after buying the adapting hood fitted it to my Canon S1 camera.
Apparently, one should be able to turn the lens and notice a difference. Well, maybe I`m doing something wrong, but it looks the same to me. I took some landscape shots today in the sunshine and turning the lens appears to make no difference. Indeed, there appeared no difference even with the lens off.
Any tips regarding polarising lenses, anyone got an S1 with one fitted?
Circular or linear polarizer?
You can test it by using your sunglases (if polarized). Hold your filter between glasses and your eye. If you turn your polarizing filter you should see change in light intesity getting through.
My question about polarizing filters is this. Is there any picture difference while using linearly or circ. polarizing filter? I do understand the difference between these two. And since circ. polarizer is just linear pol. and quarter wave-plate, there should be small or no difference between these two. Unless, there is another polarizing element in the camera ...
