    if it's distracting and you don't want the effect, just rotate it. :ugh:

    One probably shouldn't be using it in low light, since there isn't much point. :dunno:

    CP's aren't an everyday use filter.

    They should only be used when you need to reduce scattered light, glare or unwanted reflections.

    If you're not reducing polarized light, it acts as a ND filter.

    Well, not really ND, because most have a slight cooling effect...
