I have a question in general regarding the different ways filters are listed when it comes to ND/ND grads...

Sometimes I see them listed as 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 and even 1.2, etc...
Then there is 1 stop, 2 stop, 3 stop, and of course the 9 and 10 stoppers
I have also seen some listed as being 2x, 4x and 8x.

What is the connection/translation there, if that question makes sense. Is a 2 stop the same as a 0.6? a 10-stop is the same as what in the other terms? and where does the 2x, etc come into play! I am new to this, but wanting to get started and find the different ways of stating such things confusing!

Consider it as the following

0.3 = 2x = 1 stop
0.6 = 4x = 2 stops
0.9 = 8x = 3 stops
...
..
.
3.0 = ?x = 10 stops

Here's a recent shot of mine - it was taken in Yellowstone (just past the north (Gardiner) entrance into Yellowstone). The photo was shot in very flat light between drizzles of rain using a 6-stop ND filter and a circular polarizer (to cut the reflection on the wet rocks):

Beautiful tonality

Thank you. It'd be much easier if there was a standard way to put it, instead of there being 3 or 4 ways!

3.0 = ~1000x = 10-stop (as I recall reading it's more like 1024x but that 1000x is close enough for the calcs.)

I am kicking myself because I found a really nice cheat-sheet for these numbers but for the life of my I have been hunting for around a month and just never found it again. And no time to do the detritus-trimming on my fav's links to see if I was not too stoopid to own a polaroid and did not save the link...sigh. I have found plenty of tables but none have been as concise and straightforard as this one.

hey...AWESOME...thanks a BUNCH. I think that was the chart I ran across, or it's so darn close to be the same. VERY appreciate!! Already printed and will laminate it in the AM, in fact I think I'll make a few so I can spread them around my bags...and wallet!

I also made the 9 stop if you need. Let me know and I'll post it too.

It seems like you double the time from 9 stop with 10 stop

Isn't that because the 9-stop is approx. a 500x (~512x) and the 10-stop is approx 1000x (~1024x)? Asking because that is a pure assumption on my part because I am just learning the whole ND filter thing.

That is the very definition of a stop.

Really no need for carrying a chart...with the 10-stop filter, simply multiply your non-filtered shutter speed by 1024. With a 9-stop, multiply by 512. Just use your cell phone calculator function...
