Wouldn't it be handy if filter makers all just labelled ND filters by the number of stops of reduction in light transmission, instead of some being ND2 to ND1000, others being ND0.3 to ND3.0, still others being ND101 to ND110, and all of them needing to be converted to what you really want to know: f-stops.

it sure would make it less confusing...I am doing a speaking series on Long Exposure at local camera clubs...and this question comes up...and its hard to say what nomenclature means what between various brands...it would be nice if they didn't do that!

From my understanding, the ND 2-1000 system basically means 1/2 - 1/1000. Half the light = 1 stop. 1/1000 the light = 10 stop. It's a denominator system.
1/2 = 1 stop, therefore 1/2 of 1/2 is 1/4 (ND4) = 2 stops, therefore 1/2 of 1/4 is 1/8 (ND8) = 3 stops, and so on

The 0.9- 3.0 is a density value to deal with log functions. Basically, you just have to keep in your mind 0.3 = 1 stop, therefore, 0.3 x 3 stops = 0.9, 0.3 x 10 stops = 3.0

anything else is probably their own stuff

For me, I prefer this label... For example the pro ND 100, if the shot require 1/10 seconds.
So what is 6, 2/3 stop if I use this filter?

Easy, just take 100 * 1/10s = 10s (6, 2/3 stop)

maybe that's just me.  :p

I see. That does make it easy. Although less so if it's an ND64. :)

that was one of the reasons I chose the 6, 2/3 stop over the 6 stop.

Singh Ray filters use stops. Why everyone else doesn't is beyond me. Can you imagine if photographic light meters gave you an EV value instead of an f-stop, or maybe just a lumens value?

The fog rolled in while I was at Peggy's fog giving me an opportunity to do a 30 sec exposure with my not so good 10 stop filter. The filter leaves a blue color that it not easy to eliminate.
Thanks for looking.

Lightroom should eliminate the blue cast - if you use that.
