I need to get hold of a 1.5 ND filter for some tests. Does anyone know of a website that sells a 1.5? Or do I need to buy a 1.0 + 0.5 and combine?

I was hoping that kodak do a 1.5 to save costs? thanks,

You can get them. Tiffen makes up to an ND2.1 (7 stop)

Thanks Chris, i have found a company in the uk who make the gelatine kind,

Gelatine nd filters

I talked to the guys on the phone, and was just wanting to make sure that the measurements of ND filters are from its density? Ie a 0.3 density nd filter, = 1 stop.

Are the density measurements 0.3,0.6,0.9 - are these a standard between companies or does the light loss vary with each manufacturer?

They are standard. 0.3 is one stop (although generally it will be spoken as "ND 3.").
