Hello all,

I use an analog Polaroid Big Shot camera. It has an f24 lens on the lightest setting and an f55 on the darkest. It has a fixed shutter speed of 1/52. This camera can also only be used with a MagiCube (flash).

Now I have a question. This camera is set for ISO 80-100 pack film, which was produced until 2016. Now I have a large stache of Fuji FP-3000B black and white film with an iso of 3000. I would like to shoot this in this Big Shot, only of course I risk that the exposure is not good since it is set to ISO 100.

That's why I wanted to use an ND filter, but I'm really a layman when it comes to ND filters or f-stop compensation. What kind of ND filter would I need to shoot ISO 3000 in a camera that uses ISO 100?

Regards.

There are five stops from ISO 100 to 3200 - ought to be close enough.
 
You can buy a ND filter that has a 2-8 stop control. Test at 5 stops, can then go to 4 or 6 stops depending on test.
