ND Filters for 16mm film

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I plan on shooting on the Super 16 format this summer and would like some tips on using ND filters with film, as in how best to read light with a light metre in consideration of the ND filters.

I will be using a variable 2 - 400 ND filter accompanied with an Eclair ACL II (Hopefully) with Canon FD lenses and using Kodak Vision3 50d film stock.

Hey Man,

Just do the math in your head, should be good enough  (relative to your post-process) and rent yourself a set of 4x4 ND's. Unless your willing to spend upwards of $500USD for a decent Variable.

P.s. trying to answer your rear-projection questions, also waiting on others to reply to yours cause it's something i've have interest in as well.

Best of Luck!
