EVF and polarizer
« on: April 28, 2016, 11:33:33 »
I have a Fuji X-T1 as sole visible light camera, and am enjoying it very much. One aspect that I appreciate especially is the EVF which make MF easier than it used to be on the already quite good OVF of my now sold D700.
One specific situation is problematic though: I can barely see the effect of the CPL when rotating it and it is quite frustrating. I don't understand why as  I am seeing directly the image from the sensor, and the effect is clearly visible on the final image.
Am I the only one with that frustration? Am I missing something? Are there setting that could help? Is it simply because the EVF adapts to the total amount of light and compensates the variations caused by the polarizer?

From a Fujfilm XE1 user, this would be my conclusion.

The polariser filter cuts 1.3 to 2.5 stops approx. The EVF easily compensates thus vital information is lost.
