What you are probably looking for is a 10-stop ND filter. Lee and Hitech make large square filters - Lee calls theirs the "big stopper". B+W make a screw-in version that is less expensive. These will roughly allow for 1000 times the exposure. So instead of 1/250th of a second, you can expose for 1000 * 1/250 = 4 seconds. If you want even longer ...


It is not. What you are referring to is sensitivity to light. That is the ISO sensitivity is for and while there is a standard that describes it, digital sensors do not match exactly the posted sensitivity. A site like DxOMark actually measures ISO equivalence as part of its sensor benchmarks and you can commonly see a difference of ±1/3 EVs. The other ...


Theoretically both images should be the same brightness, even though the NEX sensor is larger, it stills receives same amount of light per unit area both lenses were set to f/3.5. The difference in brightness is due to different processing, there's nothing in the ISO standard that guarantee the same digital brightness values given the same exposure and ISO ...


You need an ND filter to get long exposures in daylight as others have noted. However this will probably still not give you the results you need. Long exposure shots of cars work at night time because the car head/tail lights are brighter than anything else in the scene. During the day all you will get with a long exposure shot of cars going by is a muddy ...


You have to limit incoming light even more, since it is daylight. You can achieve this by stacking (putting on) multiple Natural Density filters. You might try to get Cokin or Lee filter holders and buy extra set with couple ND filters and try how many filters you have to use to stop enough light. Those filters comes as ND2, ND4 etc... depending on how much ...


I have 2 D3200s and one of the first things I noticed was that at default "0" screen setting they are both way too bright. I'm a 40 yr vet to photography and it absolutely is a defect in the screen brightness. I own D3100, D5100, D700, D7000, D200 and others and have never had the problem with any other camera.


Because the exposure factors of ISO, shutter speed, and aperture are interchangeable in terms of final exposure, you can experiment with this yourself by loading a sample image into a photo processing application like Darktable and playing with the Exposure slider. The bad news is that the human eye is really good at this, at least when the images are shown ...


Keep in mind that dark is bright on a negative. Anything black is going to become white, so underexposing the image of the negative results in an overexposure of the positive. Boost your original exposure of the negative and the inverted version will be more natural. It's probably being exposed dark due to being on a light table which is probably throwing ...


As mentioned, you would need to consider using an ND filter. The LEE big stopper is a well respected filter and should give the results you are looking for. Here is a link to the Lee Website The cokin ND filters are known to give a magenta colour cast when used, which, unless you like that effect on a specific image, you would have to fix in post ...
