why so expenisve? well ive tried cheap brands and frankly, they ruin your images... You need to know how to 'use these' Polarizers will have little or no effect when used to shoot a setting sun, because the angle is wrong. The effect of a polarizers manifests itself at 90 degree angles to the sun. So if you make a gun shape out of your hand with your forefinger as the barrel and your thumb as the hammer, you can remember how to use a polarizer. Simply point your forefinger at the sun, and you'll know that any direction your thumb can rotate to point to is the correct place to point your camera with a polarizer, here are two elements in a polarizer. The front element needs to be rotated to control the strength of the polarizing effect. So look in your viewfinder and spin the front element until you see the correct amount of effect. It can be tough to determine how strong to make the effect and most people, in my opinion, go too far. My key for using a polarizer is to turn it to as strong as it will go, then back off just slightly. This should be about right. When you get the image on the computer, you'll see it's usually a bit stronger than it looked in the optical viewfinder.
