Hello all, this is my first post. I use Raynox 6600 0.66x wide-angle lens when I shoot under the concert stage and I made a customized lens hood for my cam.
I tape my friend's band and I need your help!
The problem are the lights on the stage (reflectors). Whenever they turn to my cam, I get an ugly reflection, as seen on this screenshot: http://126.96.36.199/01.jpg
I tried changing the shutter speed or aperture priority, but doesnt help like I would want. My question is: would a LIN or CIR polarizer help? As I have seen vids on youtube, those polarizers can do a lot of things, but unfortunately there arent any tests at the concerts.
Here are two examples of using the polarizer:

I especially like this second youtube example. So would any polarizer(s) work out my problem with the concert lights? I am going on a tour on friday, and I can still get it.
Any suggestions, thoughts, etc.. would be much appreciated!
