Anyway, while I was doing that, I found another aspect of mirrorless that I need to adjust to, namely, using a polarizer. With a DSLR, I'm used to being able to rotate the polarizer and immediately see its effect in the viewfinder. On the M5, as I rotated the polarizer and it darkened and lightened the sky, the AE system would adjust the shutter or ISO (I was shooting in Av) and change the brightness in the EVF to keep things somewhat uniform. I found that this, combined with the way the EVF shows colors, made it more difficult to know when the polarizer was set just the way I wanted.
From just looking through the images I took quickly, it looks like I got the polarizer right on with some of them, and way off with others.
Any words of wisdom on polarizer use from the more experienced mirrorless users around here?
Thanks in advance!
Haven't your camera, but I've used one on my Olympus EM5.
Never had any issues with it (polariser), but I shoot with full control over my exposure and the camera doesn't make those annoying changes.
I'd imagine you've a setting to keep the exposure you want (exposure lock?).
Live view will then allow you to see what the filter does as you rotate, whilst not changing the settings.
I use it a lot on the EM5, and get it functioning as I want.
