    Hi Guys.
    In your experience, are Variable ND filters any good?

    I've never found them useful.

    I've never even used one. They'd be pretty inconvenient if you don't have TTL metering.

    I never use them, I just use different speeds. I have different backs on my RB67.

    Buy one that has an index on the rim.


    To the op,
    They're just two polarizers attached to one ring. One linear, one not.
