Blooming, white orbs and ND filter
Reading the article from dpreview on the white orb problem, from what I understand the reason Fuji recommends to use a higher iso is to have slower aperture.
So wouldn't a ND filter solve the problem? (without the noise issue of increasing the iso) and if yes, what ND filter can I buy that will fit directly on the lens without using the lens hood?
The use of filters on the X10 has been discussed many times on this forum. Please do a search. All filters are not made the same. People had luck with anything between 39.5mm to 40mm depending on make and model.
