In-camera ND filter on XL1s

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the strength of the in-camera ND filter on the XL1s? I'm in the field without a manual and I need to match exposure to the DVX100. Many thanks in advance for your help!

why calling 1/32 not 32x ?


usually optical filters called by density 0.3 .6 .9

or by f.factor like 2x 4x 8x


why in digitals they calling 1/16 1/32 ??

Five stops is a lot for an ND filter on a film camera, but I think the idea is to avoid forcing you down into the F/16 sort of range for day exts - perhaps there are diffraction problems with the iris, and it certainly makes for endless DOF.


Be better to take some of the inherent gain out of it, methinks.
