I have an olympus E-PL1 mirrorless camera. I recently got a Hoya HD circular polarizer for use with a wide angle lens. Using it, I initially found that there was no varying polarizing effect as I turn the ring, irrespective of my orientation to the sun.
I then found that as I rotate the camera (ie. from landscape to portrait mode), I start seeing the polarizing effect. I assume that this is some sort of manufacturing defect.
Couple of questions:
- Is this actually something wrong with the filter or am I doing something wrong? This is my first experience with a polarizer.
- Is there some way I can fix this myself?
