variable nd filter

X-Factor Auditions Montgomery by matt wolfe [cc]

I was at the local affiliate X-Factor auditions downtown at the train shed and shot some video. I was really just shooting to 1) shoot something and make a quick video just because, and 2) I still needed footage to test out the variable ND filter I just picked up.

Realized I need to do some real comparison test shots with the ND filter attached with other filter still on lens, without UV filter (that I keep on to weather-seal my lens), and without the variable ND filter. Noticed some degredation of the sharpness, but I imagine that's what happens when you add an additional two pieces of glass to the front of your lens.
