    We get some nice sunsets with the Rockies as a backdrop. Thought I'd share and will keep updating as I get more.

    That's a great photo man, I always have problems with sunset/sunrise shots. I ordered a set of filters last night for my P3A in hopes of correcting it to some extent, we get some great ones out here at work with the Guadalupe Mountains as a back drop over the desert but I've never been able to capture it like that.

    Both those were using an N4 filter on a P4

    The ND4 filter is not contributing to your outcome here. The correct exposure is.

    The standard filter supplied is UV. Glare can be reduced by fitting a hood (weight and aerodynamics can be an issue for the gimble though). ND's are good for getting your shutter speed down to close to twice frame rate for video, ND grads are helpful in balancing sky and foreground, polarisers are problematic as the effect changes dramatically with angle to sun and large expanses of sky can show greatly varying colour (looks very unnatural in most cases).

    ND 16 and 32 will get most use unless you predominantly shoot in the earliest and latest hours of the day or in extremely overcast conditions- especially if you have a preference for 24fps.
