    I would go for the ND16. ND 4 is 2 f stop less, too little in my opinion.

    I would check out this set. Fit great, you can stack them so its like having several, & @ $27.95 its the price of just a single filter. I got them last week. Fits all P3s simply slips over the front of he camera. 9 filters, 3 lens rings, in a little tin. Holder & 1 filter weighs only .7 grams so no need for weights.

    I used to use ND 4 and ND 8 on sunny days. ND 8 is almost too dark, and way too dark for shooting around 4pm. I now adjust the exposure and ISO settings and when I'm done, I bring the video into Adobe Light Room and make the adjustments.

    I now keep the ND filter on to cover the camera lens. May switch over to using the UV filter for that purpose. Again, if you know what you're doing and have the proper software, you won't need ND filters as you can make adjustments in post.
