Please advise on Variable neutral density filters
Aug 11, 2011

I have been using ND filters for a while for landscape photography - mostly water. I would like to use it more often, but I find ND8 (3 f-stops) is often not enough and ND400 (8 f-stops?) is dark and I have to remove the filter each time to compose and focus. I dread that the barrel will move during this delicate operation. And thus Variable ND Filter -- (perhaps 2-8 f-stops?). Here you can compose and focus at ND2, and than just turn the filter. Singh Ray was the only game in town, but now there many, many brands to chose from ranging from $15 ( ) - to $ 300 +. What do you guys recommend. Personal experience?, good review?, comparison of results? Please help me out.
Thanks Pavel
