    Here is a non-mac question, but a video one.

    I need advice for when your trying to Tape a animal or fish in a aquarium or glass cage.


    Is there any special filter you can use to help reduce glare? anybody know anything that would help get good shots?

    Put the lens right up against the glass, and you should not get any reflection. Light the tank from the top.

    Get a circular polarizer

    hopefully your camcorder has a screw-in place for one. They're not usually too expensive, $50 - $100, and will cut your light a tiny bit. But they cut thru reflections well and also work great outdoors on sunny days for boosting contrast and color.
