ND filters for compact cameras with filter threads?
1

I just noticed that my S8100 doesn't blow out highlights in video mode like my (new to me) P300.  They use the same sensor and I get much sharper images with the P300, but it blows out the highlights in the same scene.  I think its due to the S8100 having built in ND filters to act as aperture stops (2 step system).  The P300 has actually 6 blade aperture.  Stopping down on the P300 doesn't really help much and just causes deffraction.

So my question is whether or not someone knows a way to add a ND filter to compact cameras like the P300.  Even DYI ideas would be great.  I would rather have the system be as light as possible because its pointing downwards from a tripod.  Thanks.
