    Do ND filters increase DOF?

    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.

    Just a thought, too bad.
