What ND filter?
Jun 11, 2009

Hi all,

In about a week I'll go in vacation (I'll enjoy the sea side and a lot of sun). The thing is that I want to take pictures in bright sun using my D300 with AF-S VR 70-200mm and Nikon SB-800. I know I need a ND filter to bring the shutter speed below 1/250s.

Now my questions:

1. How strong should be the ND filter? I was thinking about 8 stops. Is it too much? Also, does it have an impact on autofocus?
2. What do you think about Kenko PRO1 D filters (ND4 or ND8)?

Thank you for your time.
