I usually carry an SLR because I really like the effect that I get from a
polarizing filter and I have not found a light-weight, compact, non-SLR
camera that can take a polarizer. If the sun is out at all a polarizer will
make bright, saturated colors out of what would have been tinted grays.  Of
course, the polarizer has little effect when you are in heavy fog or when you
are walking in a cloud.  

Does anyone know of a super-light camera that can use a polarizer?  Until I
find one, I'll stick to my SLR.
