    I first shot with a variable ND filter over the summer and instantly fell in love! These filters are excellent because they allow camera operators to keep their shutter speeds low, aperture wide open, ISO low and ensure that your image will not be overexposed. Photographers might not need this as much because they can compensate for the amount of light by raising the shutter speed but videographers who keep their shutter speeds low will definitely find a use for this. The fact that it is variable is wonderful because you don't have to constantly swap filters as the lighting changes; you just rotate the filter! The image quality through the filter is superb and mine came out of the box with no scratches or imperfections. It also comes with two step-down rings so when you need to swap lenses and don't want to buy an ND filter for each lens, you can add a step down ring and it will fit on the other lenses in your arsenal. The last note I have on this filter is the price. Sometimes these filters can really cost a pretty penny and freelance guys like myself or people just starting out may not want to fork over the money. However, I feel like the price of this product is set just right and this is a tool that I recommend every videographer carry in their bag. Your director will be impressed! I guarantee it!

    I have more than a few filters lying around including a handful of ND filters. I have only had this filter for a few days now and WOW... I love it. I get the same results with this as I do stacking my other filters. And for doing landscapes, which I love, I often find myself spending too much time wasting on setting up and changing out filters. With this I just turn the filter one way to increase the darkness and the other to lighten it up. Skies are bluer Grass is greener, and best of all those at longer exposures those clouds are super smooth. From what I can tell the build quality is very good/sturdy. Time will tell but as of now, an AMAZING product... Wish I would have gone to Variable long ago! Going to the Anna Maria Island Beach Saturday and I'm very happy to have this in my arsenal!!!

    I have a Nikon D3200. I am not a professional photographer at all, but I do like to have relatively good gear to give the illusion that I know what I'm doing ;). I did a lot of research on Variable ND filters before buying this and understood its strengths and limitations. For $50, I think this is a steal. I didn't notice the dreaded "black-x" that appears from the nd filter around its max setting, but I was rarely using it at max. I wasn't expecting much for a $50 fader, but it definitely surprised me. It does exactly what its supposed to do. My friend who graduated with a videography degree, and played around with it said it does a pretty good job compared to the gear she uses, which is obviously more professional than my stuff. This is a great addition to your gear if you are not a serious photographer, or are wanting to learn how to shoot with filters.

    This is a all around great filter to have in your bag of goodies. What I really like about this filter is the fact that you have multiple filters all rolled into one. This filter gives you between 1 and 8.6 f-stops which covers most anything that I shoot. This works well for those long exposures with flowing water, makes for some really nice effects. Also, the aluminum frame makes for a hassle free operation and the dial on the side is easy to read.

    I bought this filter to be able to keep my speed appropriate while shooting video outdoors (1/60th or 1/120th). It does the trick. The image quality is great. I have seen other variable filters that require a larger lens cap, but this one works with the existing 67mm - just pops right on. The added bonus was the 52mm and 58mm adapters. So the filter will work on my "nifty 50" lens as well. Excellent value for the money.

    Decent build quality, and performs well at low settings. However at higher settings this is is plagued by the black "X" that is common on Variable ND filters. Starting at around 80% of max its very noticeable, from 70-80% one corner on my filter starts to show un-even shading. It works well but only up to about 6 stops at best,

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Very handy with both 52 & 58mm adapters included. Not quite dark enough to safely use for the eclipse, but with the help of some cloud cover at near totality managed to grab a few shots without harming my camera.

    This may not be the best filter. However, it’s not terrible! Also, I thought this was three different filters and it’s not. It’s one wide angle filter with two connections to place on the lens to use the same filter. It’s not my long term solution but it’s been great so far.
