    Hey guys just wanted to give my input on this new filter. I bought it off Amazon for a good price. It came packaged in a small case with the lens wrapped in maché like paper to keep it from getting scratched. The feel of the lens feels good. The bezel is metal and glides easily when you turn the outer edge to adjust the filter. I don't see any scratches on the lens either. I took a few pics of it and a comparison of with and without the lens over my iPhone camera. I was pointing to the house in the direction of the sun. It is also partly cloudy. So far I am pretty satisfied with it. I didn't want to buy several for an arm and a leg. Just a cost effective alternative for the beginner like myself.

    The pictures show a color shift...not good, but common with adjustable ND filters.

    It's heavy, might need a counterweight to save motor from overloading.

    I can't get mine screw perfectly. It will have a little gap on the threads

    I have one like this. It weighs 8.6 grams compared to the original lens protector which weighs 2.5 grams. Do I need a counter weight
