Physically larger than 58mm
I have one of the 77mm versions of this variable neutral density for cutting sunlight to manageable levels when shooting video outdoors. It works fine. I assume this 58mm version will work with typical Tiffen quality as well. For those of you who might want to use it in conjunction with your factory lens hood, forget it.

Great service and the ND filter is solid
Did what expected to do.
I have it attached to the Tamron 24-70mm/ 2.8. I used it on my Canon t3i and the Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6 and so far I am very pleased. It really works.
It good the money. does its job.
Nice to carry just one filter for all the various settings. Works well
works great, good price too,will come in handy
Using this for my daytime photo is fantastic, I do have to carry multiple filters. It is convenience of space and less weight.
Good range of exposures possible all in one filter.
I loved this filter, just what I wanted. Had a wedding to do outside with the sun just blasting, this fileter did the trick.
Just received this and have not used it yet. What strikes me first is the excellent storage pouch in which it comes and the smoothness of its operation. Re reports of the dreaded X, the documentation accompanying it clearly explains that turning the filter past its indicated "max" will cause the X banding. What it boils down to, if the documentation is correct, is if you don't want the X then don't set the filter beyond its indicated max. All indications point to genuine satisfaction with this product.
