Is there anyway to hook one up to a G11?

I'm assuming the G11 uses the same type of accessory lens mount that the G9/10 use. You can, or should be able to put a polarizing filter on the mount. I probably use mine more for the filter than the lenses.

Easy to use with one of the simple adapter tubes. Go for either the Canon LA-DC58k or one of the other makes, such as Lensmate or an eBay Chinese clone.

Decision is what size to use, the Canon adaptor is 58mm and will vignette at the wide end of the zoom. The lensmate allows you to buy an adaptor in 3 sections (A, B, C) – part A and C allow you to fit 72mm filters on the camera which works fine at all zoom lengths. I picked up a Chinese version of the Lensmate which allows 77mm filters and absolutely no dark corners. I tend to use 77mm as that is what I use with my DSLR, of course you can use a simple 72mm to 77mm stepping up ring if needed.

Using the filter in general works very well, remember that you will get the best effect at 90 degrees to the sun, not always easy to judge the setting on the EVF – another option is the Kenko Rangefinder Polariser which is a two stage process, designed for high end rangefinders, basically you check the setting on a separate viewfinder and then set the filter – Linky (external link)

The big problem is that you don’t always want or need full polarisation, using the filter on the normal adaptor works but is a bit hit and miss, the Kenko method is far more effective as you get a better view of what is going on – hope this helps…

You can also merely hand hold a polarizer in front of the lens.

And don't fall for the "need a circular polarizer" routine you may frequently hear. Compact cameras can work just as well with a linear polarizer. Much less expensive, and will work just as well.
