ND filter for regular daylight?

and if this sounds normal, and all i need is an ND filter... will my camera's automatic exposure take the filter into account, or would i need to shoot manual and bump it up a stop?

from the outside, all i can see about the film is E160.
i guess if 160 is the ASA, then the light meter makes sense, no?
does anyone know about E160 film?

It would be a simple thing to check -- look at what f-stop the camera is telling you before and after you put the filter on. If you put an ND.60 on and the camera automatically opens-up by two stops, then it is reading through the lens.
You can also use a Pola filter as a way of cutting down some exposure.
