Partly inspired by some discussion about polarisers here recently, I've produced a pictorial guide on how to use polarisers here (on DPNow.com):

Ian,

I think the time you spent on that photoshoot and write-up was time well spent. Short and to the point, it will help people understand the benefits of these filters enormously.

OK - what do you want? :D:eek:

Seriously - it's very rewarding getting feedback like this. :)

A DPNow member made an interesting comment on old-fashioned linear polarisers too. I'm trying to find my old one to see if it actually works OK on modern cameras as he suggests.

They certainly work on the PEN series, I think due to the different focussing mechanism. I suspect they will therefore work on most compact cameras.
