    So I shot a roll and a half of T-Max P3200 and I don't think I'll have the time to finish shooting it at night. As for shooting it in the daylight, can I use the Sunny 16 Rule? My quickest shutter speed is 1/1000 sec, so I'm not sure how I will match that up. Should I stop down a stop or two? Any help would be great.

    Thanks!

    Can you stop down to f/22? If you do that, you might be able get away with shooting at 1/1000.

    A Neutral Density filter.

    I do not own a Neutral Density filter. I can stop down to f/22 though.

    I thought about suggesting that, but I figured he didn't have one, and assumed he want to finish up this roll fairly quickly (not giving him time to go out and buy one). But yes, a 2 or 3 stop ND filter would make life a bit easier.

    I could walk down to the camera store, but I'm sick as hell and I am broke. I looked on Freestyle photo and they were something like 20 bucks and CameraArts is usually pricier than Freestyle. So I figure stopping down to f/22 will work. Though it's getting a little cloudy out, I might stay at f/16. We'll see.

    Yeah, but I don't trust half the time.

    If you stack 2 polarizing filters, you'll be able to use them as a variable ND filter. As you turn one on top of the other, you'll be able to change the degree of light coming through.

    I only have one polarizing filter that fits the lens. I'd have to buy a step up or step down ring otherwise.

    EDIT: I'm just throwing on the one polarizing lens and shooting at f/22
    If I want to use a red filter or something, should I use polarizing and red filter or just red?

    I just shot it at f/22, 1/1000 sec, with a polarizing filter and red filter stacked. What will it turn out like if I messed up. Will it just be overexposed? I shot a few shots indoors as well (different fstop and shutter time).
