i plan to get a ND filter as my fujifilm e900 camera can only close down to f8 and i find its not enough. i read up there is ND2, 4 and 8. in sg night lighting conditions, which one would be good? is 43mm screw size common? thanks. :D

thanks. the stop part is where i'm confused. 2x means half the amount of light entering, and hence prolonging the shutter speed by 2 times (e.g. 8 secs to 16 secs)?

You can stack the filters, but must check if the stacking cause vignette or not lah.Different lens will have different tolerance in filter stacking:)

yes,

8 sec to 16 sec is 2 times = 1 stop
8 sec to 32 sec is 4 times = 2 stops
