    I need a Variable ND filter recommendation, I wish there was internal ND filter or something similar with LPL mount but there isn't anything. I found only two options and I wanted to know if there are any other.

    Multi Rota Tray Variable Neutral Density https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...ray_138mm.html

    Brilliant² 4x5.65 Variable Neutral Density Filter https://www.lindseyoptics.com/motion...ensity-filter/

    I have the Signature Primes so I have no option to mount it in the lens directly.

    I appreciate any feedback on this ND filters.

    Maybe KipperTie can make an LPL Mount Revolva?

    I message them, they won't until there is a lot of requests.

    IMO variable nd filters (which are basically two polas) are absolutely garbage. You will invariably introduce tons of unwanted color and tonal shifts in your image with these shifts being non-uniform and changing depending on the orientation of your lens (much like a pola). This makes correcting these shifts extremely difficult. If you are shooting large format images with Signature Primes I highly recommend keeping your filtration choices as clean and broad-spectrum as possible.
