Do ND filters increase DOF?

Thanks,
Ron

ND filters do not directly affect DOF. However, if you leave the shutter
speed the same and put on an ND filter, you'll have to use a larger
aperture, so that will _decrease_ DOF.

ND filters are used either if there is too much light and your camera
doesn't provide a fast enough shutter speed or if you want a really long
exposure time, e.g. a picture of a river with blurred water.
