I wouldn't say you can't use a polarizer, but it is very inconvenient. I really like that device you made, Zsolt!
Yeah Marcus, my fingers might not be smart and tiny enough to fiddle with the polariser under the sunshade, let alone the risk of touching the glass and leave fingerprint.
Btw, what device are you referring to?
Sony XDCAM EX1r, Canon 5DMkII, Røde NTG2, Røde NT1000, Røde Stereo Videomic, Sachtler DV6 SB on Gitzo 1325V, Steadicam Merlin, Omnitracker, Hackintosh 3.5Ghz Quad 8Gb RAM

Oops! I meant the little wheel Giroud made to turn his polarizer. Sorry about that.

I think the risk of getting a fingerprint is enough to go to other means. A pencil eraser is a good suggestion, but I really do like the Cokin filter system or other matte-box setup as a more comprehensive solution.
