Sorry, ND filter

You think an ND filter would be necessary for those shutter speeds? In shutter priority mode, I would think that the camera would adjust ISO and Aperture for exposure control.

With the aperture capped at f8, even if you are at ISO 125 you will need a higher shutter (like 1/500) in the sun without an ND filter. THat's why most people who take video seriously carry an ND filter it their camera doesn't have one built in.

I can see the logic in that. I cant say I've experienced that but most of my video as of late has been with my ZS20 which isn't bright to begin with and has no real manual control over video anyways.

What ND filter intensity would you recommend for video with the FZ1000 and for the LX7 while we're at it?  I've been thinking about getting a variable ND filter.
