I am going on a shoot for a documentary and will be shooting portions of an airshow over several days( and times of day). It will be 16mm and 7245 50D is the planned stock as it is slow and fine grain. I will be panning the sky tracking the planes mostly from the ground. A polarizer has been requested to enhance the sky.
Now the question: I have heard various pro and con reasons to use a circular polarizer over a linear polarizer. I understand about the possible 'black out" a linear polarizer might cause in the viewfinder but don't think that will be an issue here. I have heard concern that a circluar polarizer might degrad the image slightly more than a linear one. On the other hand I have heard a circular polarizer will mainatin its effect over a wider range pan.(?) Anyway any advice from arial shoot experience with polarizers would be helpful. And any feedback on stock choice would be appreciated as well. Thanks.
