    Having said that, it's possible (through stupidity) to get lens flare with a polariser if you're shooting into the sun and forget you've got it attached. See exhibit A below (I didn't notice it...

    I found one after a quick ebay search. Two things to look out for, a snap-on cap with both centre and edge release makes it easier to put on/remove under different circumstances, and a loop to...

    Hoya aren't necessarily always optical glass, they have budget versions that seem to be sold mostly in Asia that use window glass. If you're buying via ebay an easy way to spot the cut-price ones...

    An additional comment: MC polarisers seem to be targetted at the photographic equivalent of the audio field's golden-ears, AFAIK you can't get a linear MC polariser, it's all circular-only at that...

    A linear polariser is fine, I use a standard Hoya 55mm on my FZ30. I don't know if a MC one is worth the extra expense, if you're using it a lot and in situations where lens flare is going to be a...

    The suffix is simply the market it's intended for. A = US, E = Europe (or by extension anywhere but the US, I don't know if there's a suffix for Asia as well). There's no difference between the...

    Nonononono, this is not a good idea (unless you're using NiCad cells, in which case you need to do this to reduce the memory effect). While over-cycling will merely wear down NiMH, if it wasn't for...

    That's the important point, the more distant the subject, the less likely you are to have problems due to parallax error. So for the traditional mountaintop 360 view, you'll have no problems. The...

    What you're seeing there is parallax error, which occurs when you don't rotate the camera around the nodal point of the lens when you're trying to get a panoramic image. Normally to get around this...

    Another question for the ongoing thread... I'd like to get a second battery for my FZ30 and (after having in the past run down both batteries in my FZ3 in a single day's shooting) I was looking for a...
