    My first Post!!!!!

    I Have bought a Minolta Dimage Z2, have now also got 52mm Adapter and treated myself to a Poloriser and Uv filter.....
    But I don't seem to get any bennefit from either, I Keep Koi and wanted to take photos of the pond without any glare, but this doesn't seem to have worked.
    What do you suggest I may be doing wrong?

    Regards

    Allan

    Welcome to the Forum.

    A polarizing filter will not necessarily cut out the glare. It should stop direct reflections so that you can see the fish under the water better. Try rotating the filter to increase or decrease it's effect.

    I don't know how much a UV filter will help. Typically UV filters are just used as a protective shield for the lens.
