ND FILTER PRESETS on PD 150

Hi everyone,

does anyone knows how many stops the camera stops down using the ND1 and ND2 presets of the 150 ? The spec. descibes these presets as 1/4 for ND1 and 1/32 for ND2?
Thanks for feed back.

You might try posting this question on the VX2K forum at Yahoo http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vx2k/
I believe it was discussed there awhile back.

1/4 means 4 times less light on the CCD equals 2 f-stops (4=2^2) 32 times means 5 f-stops (32=2^5). I don't know if they sum up...("or" or "and") Could be verified by checking the number of f stops change on 1/32 setting vs no ND

anyone tried adding additional ND filters? - up to x8? is it good for having the mid-day sun in your shots?
