Hi I'm john and new to photography, I own an xg-1 and looking for polarising filters to experiment with, can anyone point me in the right direction?

I don't believe the XG-1 has a filter thread, so you'd need to get some sort of filter holder that would clip on to the barrel itself. I'm not sure I'd recommend this as it might strain the lens mechanism.

Welcome to the forum, you might just have to hold a polarising filter in front of the the lens by hand... not ideal but will work if there's not other way to attach.
