Default Proper filters For Shooting The upcoming Total Eclipse

I have a Nikon D-7000 and a D-200. The two lenses I will be using for the 'pre-eclipse and all events leading up to totality, will be a Nikkor 28-200, and a Nikkor 55-300.

What filter(s) will I need to safely shoot the eclipse? I plan on using the 28-200 on the D-200for all the pre and post totality events, and the 55 -300 on the D-7000, for the brief time of totality.

I am getting so many conflicting pieces of advice as to what filter(s) to use. The most common filter advice is an ND400X.

Believe it or not, in the past, when photographing Mercury's transit of the sun, I have used a welding helmet with good success, but this time, I want to be absolutely sure of my success. I am too old to be around for the next totality window in the NorthWest United States!

Anyone care to comment?

Many Thanks!
