Picked up a cheap 10 stop ND filter for the FZ1000.  Assumed that the combination of small sensor and cheap filter would render it worthless, but was pleasantly surprised at my first attempt with it

Doesn't appear to have as much of a blue cast as some of the ones I've used either. Although you may have corrected for that?

I always shoot raw so the white balance is (theoretically) controllable, but as you know that's an area which I'm never confident with.  I pushed the red/orange/yellow well into the positive for this, not sure how natural it ended up looking but it's much like I remember the scene looking.

If anybody's interested, it was a Pig Iron ND1000 which I paid £12 for the 62mm version of; I just bought a 52mm version for the bairn's Canon lenses and it was a tenner.  Well worth having one in your bag, if you've also got a tripod or a beanbag (and some way of calculating the exposure).

Yeah, I really like this camera (original FZ1000).  Very versatile.  Not so very sharp at the long end but if you don't need to crop a huge amount then it's perfectly workable.  I think it has the distinction of being the camera that I've used for the longest continuous time since my first RX100.

First one is real nice, OC :thup: ND filter? Did you ever use the in-built x100s one? Never tried it myself but I've watched people on youtube get some canny results out of it not too dissimilar to yours here.

Few new collage pieces from today.

Aye, I used to use it all the time on the Fuji just to keep the shutter speed down because I prefer shooting open. Was handy to have but only three stops which is standard for a built in but doesn't do a lot against midday sun; this one is ten stops which let me use a five or six second exposure in bright daylight even with a minimum possible aperture of f/8. Looking forward to using it on people in Newcastle :)
