FX1 builtin ND filter question?

Just ordered the FX1 since Z1 bit much for an entry level amateur filmmaker as myself. Just added a beachtek to get the XLR.

Q: The built in ND filters what stop do they have?
In the manual just tells me:
"There are 2 levels of ND filter setting. ND filter 1 reduces the volume of light to about 1/6
and the ND filter 2 to about 1/32."

What does 1/6 and 1/32 mean..is it a 0.3(1stop), 0.6(2stop) or 0.9(3stop) or higher?

Regards
Bjorn

Welcome to DV Info Net, Bjorn!

ND1 at 1/6 reduces incoming light by two and a half stops.
ND2 at 1/32 reduces incoming light by about five stops.

Hope this helps,
