Has anyone used Variable Neutral Density Filters? They seem very convenient but online reviews are mixed and there are some concerns about them degrading the IQ of images. I'm just a hobbyist casual shooter and don't need my photos to be tack sharp. I'm looking for a cheap one for $50 or below. Can you please share your experience - good or bad? Thanks.

There is no such thing as a good and cheap VariND filter.

I bought a Singh ray Vari-ND Because most of the bad reviews came from the cheap ones.

In any case, these filters are really meant for video/film production, where you need precise exposure control using slow shutter speeds (1/48, 1/60, etc) and large apertures in bright light.

If you are just using this for photos, its far better and cheaper to get a set of ND filters.
