Didn't even know there was a Rotten Tomatoes controversy. Haha
You can buy large rolls of ND gels for pretty cheap. We get a roll of ND for about $100 to $150. It's about 50 feet. Than you can just squeegee it on windows.
I know Aputure has an adapter that can turn your electronic lens into a smooth aperature.
I believe smoothness of the change depends on the lens but could be something to look into.
So why are you disheartened with the camera? You don't like the image or just don't like the camera itself?
Very true, but as you can see, executive orders can be undone by succeeding presidents very easily. They have been trying to make it law so it can't easily be undone. And generally once things are undone, it is even that much harder to put into law.
The fight has been going on forever. It's not just happening now. Demand in equal pay has been rejected many times, and the fight keeps happening. The president can't just make a decision, it still needs to go through Senate and the House. There are executive orders but it still needs to go through a process.
