Capable ND fader with some caveats"At 2 stops it's flawless. It works really well through almost it's entire range, but at the extreme high end up around 7-8 stops, it introduces black bands through the image. (Not at all uncommon, but annoying when you see it) At least I have to assume it's at around 7-8 stops, as the filter ring doesn't have markings on the bezel with stop values. Instead there's a sort of useless bar-graph. There are markings on either end for >Min< and >Max< and the banding occurs after the last bar on the scale, but before the >max< mark. Tested for and did not see any noticeable colour shifting throughout it's entire *usable* range. All in all, it's a capable Variable ND filter, and at a sale price, it's an absolute steal. But I deducted a few stars for the banding, the useless scale and the lack of hard stops to keep it from rotating past it's min and max points."
