I need some advice.... want to buy ND filter(s). And i thought the variable version would be ideal, or is it better to get a set of them?

I have both the polar pro and the freewell variable. I bought the freewell because I thought that it would be more convenient than swapping the polar pro's depending on the lighting, WRONG! The freewell works OK but it is heavier than the polar pro's and the camera drops face down when attached, It does not cause a problem when the gimbal is powered though. The main problem with the freewell is that it is wider and the gimbal guard does not fit on the gimbal with it attached, so i was back to taking it off and on like the polar pro's. According to other experts (I'm not) the fixed filters generally are better optically than the variable filters.

ok, useful response. Thanks ;)
I have the Freewell and find it very handy. It does hang down when off and does not fit properly in to the holder. Neither of these things cause me a problem but it might to you.

You can use the cam-holder with the variable freewell ND filter, it doesn't fit perfekt, but it holds and protect the cam.
But if you wanna use the selling foam for the H with the frewell ND you have to cut of a bit of foam to gain space for the holder.
