A ND filter is one that is like sunglasses, reduces the amount of light entering the camera, allowing you to use a longer shutter without over exposing the shot... the 8 is the strength of the ND, the amount of light it blocks....

Hi Guys!
I'm using 52mm...
No need to get step up/down rings, just put the filters over the lens to try. See if the effects good anot :)

How abt meeting at Esplanade area?
Flare could go over to John 3:16 to order the IR if effects are good ;)
