    When you use film you usually need a ND filter to be abel to get a long exposure in day light.
    A ND filter is just a gray filter which should not effect you colors or contrast.
    I think the ND 0.9 filter is the most common which takes away 3 f-stops but you can also find those that are lighter or darker.
    You can also use more then one filter.
    Camera don't really matter as long as it can take long exposure like a B setting.
    Helps if the lens that it has can use a small aperture which will give you a longer exposure.
    A lower ISO film will also help for this.

    Light meters on a older analog camera usually don't work well or can't be read with a ND filter on.
    So get a metering without any and then its just to start counting what shutter you need with the filter on.
    I use a very helpful chart which makes this counting a lot easier.
    Have posted this on my blog where you also can download the PDF

    So for this picturs I used a cheap digital compact camera as a light meter.
    This gave me a shutter speed of 1/60 at ISO 100 and in f/2.8

    The film (or paper) I used in the camera is a ISO 12 which is -3 stops from ISO 100
    I used a filter which is -2 stops.
    And I used a aperture of f/45 on the lens.

    Took a look at my little chart at f/2.8 and then down to 1/60.
    Counted -5 stops up on the chart for the lower ISO and the filter used which gives 0.5 sec exposure.
    And last counted for the f stop which was f/45 which lastly give me the speed of 2 min.
