What polarfilter for HV10/HV20?

A filter that i used for SD cameras, is good also for HV10?
Or do i need a HD one? Because the resolution.

So, nobody's using a polarfilter with this great cam?
Is there a HD version of polarfilter, like wide converters, or all filters
has the quality for HD resolution?

Thanks, what's your experience?
Help it to reduce the effect of overexposed sky in auto mode?
Or do you use manual exposure?

I have used it on both auto and manual - I usuallly use Priority shutter 50 and take the exposure down a couple. You have to be careful though as the LCD is a bit bright and can be misleading. Also when you take the exposure down I have noticed that the image can appear slightly softer.

It definitley helps with overexposed skies - I love the effect of the deep blue skies.
