Had my Sony TRV14 for over 2 weeks now I was thinking about getting some filters. Filmed me and my dad washing the cars on a sunny Sunday morning. With this time of year the sun is low so it was annoying not to point it at the direction of the sun. I see in the manual that your not meant to shot directly at the sun, but what about if the sun is just out of picture as some shots had very bright patches. Now I have read that the sun can damage the camcorder but what about if the sun is just in the picture, and not directly focused? Is there a filter to help with these situations? As it seems silly not being able to make good use of the camcorder in sunny winter days due to the sun being low. Also when pointing the camera in the direction theres alot of streams of light etc. Is the polarizing filter the one to get to reduce this sort of stuff? Whats the best filter to use when the sun is shinning bright and you want to dim down reflections etc?
