    I know we want the shutter at 1/60 which seems to get me ISO 100 on sunny days. Are you all choosing 1/60 in the manual settings to keep in constant? Can't imagine anything higher unless on a beach or snow and sun conditions....

    If you want to create a cinematic look, rule of thumb is to double your fps for shutter speed. For example: 60 fps = 1/120 sec. 30 fps =1/60 sec. I am using the ND16 filters now, it works awesome on bright sunny day.
