Compact Camera Hacks

Compact Camera Hacks: "I'm about to embark on an epic (for me at least) hiking expedition, and, in the name of minimising pack weight, my SLR is staying at home and my compact camera is coming out to play. BUT one thing I was potentially going to miss was the ability to use a polarising filter (most compact cameras have no ability to mount filters on them and my Canon Ixus 900Ti is no exception). I wanted to find a way to hold a filter in front of the my compact's lens in such a way as to: eliminate reflection from the rear of the filter; ensure the holder avoided blocking any of the sensors on the front of the camera, and; still be able to rotate the filter (a key requirement for using a polarising filter)."
