    SRB-Griturn have a wide choice. Note that 10 stop filters are often designated ND1000. Any major stockist (Park Cameras, WEX, Mifsuds etc.) will carry such items. Note they are not camera specific - all you need to know is the filter thread size of your lens(es) and the decide if you want to use screw-on round filters or go for the square type. Advantage of the square type is you buy one filter, one holder and adapter rings to suit each lens thread (if you have more than one. The advantage with screw-on filter is they are less prone to flare and ghosting from light sneaking in behind the filter - the best slide in filters have ways of matching this but at price. As you are using a CSC with live view you can probably use the screw-on type without too much bother - the camera finder/screen should compensate for the low light levels - meaning you can still focus/compose with the filter in place. Buy the filter in the biggest size you need and then use stepping rings for smaller diameter lenses.

    You using the SELP1650 kit lens? 40.5mm to whatever step-up ring and then screw in a filter. I use a B+W ten stop 52mm with my NEX-3n. You'll also want a remote release for best results.

    Step-up ring pennies from Amazon, filter £30something from Wex.
