Yes, you NEED ND filters. I bought a variable ND filter
from Heliopan here:

They go out of stock QUICK as they are a VERY high quality
variable ND filter. I found out about them from reading
Philip Bloom's blog and tried to order one. B&H and everyone
were out of stock and estimated time to get one on backorder
was 6-10 weeks. I just kept checking everywhere, until I found
them back in stock, and instantly ordered one. It is almost
a must have for the FS-100 in my opinion. BUT, you must
know what size lenses you have or might want to buy. I bought
the 77mm Heliopan, because it is the biggest one I could find
that they offered, and I can use step up rings for my 67mm lenses,
but I am eyeing a 77mm 70-200 F2.8 lens.....and then it will work
for that lens as well. It is really good, has a smooth change
like a video camera iris ring, so you can dial in any amount of
ND, instead of just having 2 or 3 choices on a built in ND wheel
on most video cameras. They are still in stock so far, but they
go quick. If you don't snag one, you can keep watching for them, or
grab the new Tiffin which was at NAB, and is also highly regarded.
