Hi

Could someone tell me a good exposure compensation when using white promists 1, 2 and 3.

Thanks

There is none, although with the really heavy #3, if you get too much halation from a bright area, you may want to stop down a little to reduce it, or switch to the lighter grade.

ProMist diffusion does not increase overall brightness -- it causes bright areas to halate (glow) into darker areas.

Hey Dan,
There is no compensation but be aware of the strength of the filter. It can look awkard if too strong. If you are shooting on video the effect will be stronger than on film.
Also, on wider shots you'll be better off using a lighter one than in close ups.
It obviously depends on what you want to achieve with them.

Take care
