Book in with DSLR and tripork, then bring filter along. If you're in armour, put all the stuffs in the vehicle and laager somewhere in the evening do long exposure in the jungle.
This one only elite banker dare do..

So the X is the max? No way to manipulate settings or physically adjust the 2 filter threads until the X disappears? Or any post processing magic possible?

Magic is definitely possible in photoshop. Never used variable nd filters before so cannot give any technical advice. Use other ways if you definitely need to get rid of that 1 stop of light

Not everything can do magic, and I suspect this cross thing would be hard to fix.

Guys, i need opinions on this: Tamron 70-300 VC USD f/4-5.6 (Nikon Mount) or Nikkor 70-200 f/4? Wanna hook it up to my new D600, considered an 'upgrade' from my 70-300mm f4/5.6 non VR Nikkor lens that is soft and slow AF hunting in less-than-bright lighting conditions.

Things to consider (by order of priority):
1) Budget. Less than $2k. Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 VRII is out.
2) Lightweight. If Sigma 70-200 f2.8 DG OS can be hand-carried (i.e. no need tripod collar for safe carrying), i would consider it against the Nikkor 70-200 f/4.
3) Image Quality.
4) Sharpness.

If u guys got any recommendations other than the stated 2 lenses for Nikon (e.g. Nikkor 80-200 f2.8 AFS etc), do include also. Thanks.
Consider 70-200 f/2.8 VR. <$2K can get 2nd hand.

Guys, any idea what I should get for shooting long exposures overseas if moi don't want to bring my tripod?

Only a few shots I think under bright daylight, no time to do too much in Europe.

Safety #1 too. Don't want attract attention.

Never said I have the skills to do it, just saying photoshop is a digital canvas for digital artists to do their magic
