Hi Guys, Need some help here.
Just bought a ND fader but I experience a dark cross forming when i up the stop level.. i assume that's call cross vignetting?

Anyway, any user of the filter experience the same issue?

Thanks!

What filter size is your ND Fader?

I bought a cheap fader from ebay. I do not get such bad vignetting.

There are markings on the filters if i am not wrong. mine is green l if I go beyond the the indicated marking it will cause the cross vignetting (not visible when you look through your viewfinder but the image will eventually capture it). The only main issue of my variable nd filter is that it has a warm tone (not a big issue if you are shooting digital)
