I am not entirely sure either, but let me have a go:
A polarizing filter is used, among other things, to cut out glare/reflection on glass, ice, metal...perhaps even just things? It is not dependent upon the light source being polarized, people seem to use it everywhere (unless sunlight is polarized...). So - couldn't you dispense with the polarized light source and just use the polarizing filter? This would provide much more available light, and should still get rid of any glare.
Once again - I am venturing into something I know nothing about, so please someone correct me if I am wrong.
AFAIK only sunlight is polarized, mostly when the sun is at 45 degrees.
As for getting a pro lens, I agree that for taking "photographs" it isn't amazingly important but for something like this I could really dowith something better as its more of a record than an actual photograph.
