I want to take close up video of welding arcs that will show the same detail a welder sees when he/she welds. Nothing I have tried has eliminated the brightness of the arc. I have a tried using combinations of a #8 neutral density filter, a polarizing lens, a #5 welding lens and a #9 welding lens. I am using Sony DSR PD 100 camcorder. Welder training videos produced by Miller Electric and Hobart contain portions of video with the detail I want. Does anyone have suggestions or experience that will help solve the brightness problem?
