Just curious if anyone has ever tried a polarizing filter on GoPro and if so how did it turn out?

Polarizers generally don't work well on wide lenses. You end up with bands of different coloured sky. It would work extra poorly on a skydive or any situation with a lot of movement. They work best on a static shot, because you need to rotate it to match the polarization of the light in any given situation. But you should get one and play with it anyway.

I've had experience with circular polarizer on DSLR's but never used a linear. Wondering what outcome might be and seeing if anybody may have thought of it first lol.

I've been using this one for a few months and have had good results. Saturated colors and clear images. I shoot in wide angle as well.
