comment What's wrong with portrait orientation?
Of course, you need to have some basic "sense" and some knowledge where is better to choose landscape and where portrait.

Yeah, polarizer is my favourite and often used filter. Have Hoya HD and it is really perfect. I have also a monopod and the smaller "Mini" Velbon tripod. It has a limited range about 20-55 cm height but is really small and still very useful. I will probably take the tripod instead of monopod. If needed, I can a little bit improvise using trekking pole :-)

comment What type of cloth is safe to clean lenses?
Hi, I often use a microfiber cloth which I got with my glasses - if it is OK for my plastic lenses with antireflex coating it must be OK also for the camera lens. Laptop/LCD screens have also some coating and are made from sensitive plastic, so cleaning cloth+cleaning liquid for laptop/LCDs should be also OK.

comment What are ways of improving aerial photos?
in case of standard big planes like Boeing 737 the windows has some special foil or coating on it as it produces some crazy rainbow colored moire on the images. I had this experience with Hoya HD Pro1-D CPL and I think it does the same with Hoya HD. So in my case removing polarizer also removes these artefacts.

comment What's a relatively low priced camera that performs well in low light condition?
In my opinion the Coolpix P300 would be better in low light because of the f1.8 lens. 24x zoom is too much and decreases the optical quality and increases the minimal F number. The CMOS chip used in P300 should be also very good compared to the same sized CCD chips in other cameras.
