P7700 OOC images with a Circular Polarizer

The following four images were shot through a window and window screen, handheld,

with my P7700.

I just dug out my 58mm B&W Circular Polarizser from my gear 'bin'.

It was a rainy afternoon and I always used the CP for landscapes on sunny days with the CP (and camera) at an angle to the sunlight to get a good polarized effect.

I put my CP on my P7700's Nikon lend hood and it fit properly.

Of course I ran to the window and gave my CP a try.

For a rainy day it was quite a surprise.

Upon turning my CP and looking at the effect on my LCD I thought of Forum Member Sol's issues regarding 'flat' images from his P7700.

Hope he and you find this interesting.

NOTE: *** This is not an invitation to put weight on your P7700 lens.

It is a risk I am willing to take.

Before doing so research if adding such weight is a danger to your camera. ***

At 28 mm I did have slight vignetting.

(when I have time I will see just how wide I can go with no vignetting, as 35mm does not satisfy me. Maybe I will get a step-up ring from 40.5 to 58mm and take the hood off - will report when I try this)

The images below are 35mm equivalent and 200 mm equivalent:

35 mm, uv filter, Nikon lens hood.

35 mm, 40.5 uv, nikon lens hood, B&W 58 mm Circular polarizer

200 mm, 40.5 uv, Nikon lens hood

200 mm, 40.5 uv, Nikon Lens Hood, B&W Circular Poarizer

From now on I am carrying my CP with me at all times.

Hope you find this of interest.
