I'm in the market "like today" to buy either the Singh Ray variable ND or a B+W 10 stop ND for shooting long exposures like waterfalls and architecture ............any recommendations or preferences ??
Thanks
Neil

I'd go for the straight ND over the variable one.  The variable one can give you weird cross polarization effects at the stronger ND strengths, especially on wide angle lenses.

I have a B+W 10 stop and it's been good. A bit of a color cast but not hard to fix with white balance in post.
