I'm beginning to shoot a lot of video besides photography and I want to buy one high-quality filter. I can't decide between a Variable ND or a CPL though. I want the CPL because of the colors, and skies, and the reflections. I want the Var ND for the shallow DOF, the long exposure times, and the ability to organically set precise exposure.

What would you choose? Why?

If you needed an ND for wide apertures with video, you would notice.

For stills, I'd use a CPL a hundred times more than an ND, especially hand-held.
