    Thought I would post this since this was helpful for me and might help others,... I wanted to install a polarized filter on the X5 because I mostly take water shots. I put on a 46mm filter i had for another camera and it was unbalanced, so just for fun i took off the DJI hood (which is pretty much garbage and mine broke in half with mild handling (picture attached)) and attached this slotted hood and to my amazement it is PERFECTLY balanced,.. I mean Perfect! If anyone is interested in a polarized filter with nice quality metal hood that is perfectly balanced below is what I would recommend.

    An Amazon search for below will show the items:

    Filter: CPL Circular Polarizer Glare Shine Polarizing Filter for Panasonic Lumix G 20mm f1.7 II ASPH. Lens
    Hood: JJC LH-46GFII Metal Lens Hood for Panasonic Lumix G 20mm 1.7 II & 20mm 1.7 & 14mm 2.5 ASPH

    Did you remove the balancing ring as well?
    Also, any idea how much that polarizing filter weighs in grams?
