I have tried the Hoya and the Tiffen filter on my Sigma 30mm 1.4/Sony a6500 combination. I returned the Hoya and I am very happy with the Tiffen filter. It is not perfect, but provides a good solution for video. Lens caps do work by the way. (Note: I am using the Tiffen 67mm version on my Sigma 16mm 1.4 lens with no problem. So, the below applies to this combination as well.)
How to Use:
Just screw the filter to the front of your lens. The filter has two elements - you turn the front element to set the required strength. Please note that there is only one scale which always move to the wrong side when screwing on the filter. This means that I always have to turn the camera upside down when I want to check or adjust the strength. It's quite annoying, but acceptable due to the lack of proper alternatives.
Please note that you can actually use a lens cap on this filter. There is a very shallow thread at the front of the filter I received from Amazon.co.uk. This means a lens cap does not fit 100% securely (due to the shallow thread), but it does hold on okay. I have not dropped the cap or lost it in the camera bag. I always leave the filter on my lens. I use the Eggsnow Lens Cap (62mm) which I bought on Amazon.co.uk for GBP 4.99 (pack of 2).
I went on a trip to Australia and this filter was essential to use the correct shutter speed while filming on my Sony a6500 in bright sunlight. I am able to use the filter up to the last dot for video and the second last dot for pictures without experiencing any x-effect - much better compared to the Hoya (please see my other review for the Hoya filter). Sharpness remains great and I did not notice any wear blue tint or any other colour problems which other reviewers noted here on Amazon or on YouTube.
However, the filter is not perfect. I sometimes notice white balance issues when taking pictures. The camera will adjust after a while, but it seems to take longer than it would without the filter. It does give a slight colour cast towards the warmer side which I believe you need to accept when buying a variable ND filter at this price point.
Quality & Price:
My first filter which I ordered from Amazon.co.uk came with a small scratch on the glass. I order again and the new one was good. For the price, I did expect more. However, the actual filter seems to be of good quality and I have not had any problems. I noticed hat the front element does make crunching sounds when new. However, this got less and less under use and has now disappeared.

Also, when I stop up to the maximum setting there is an uneven distribution of light: the image is dark in the middle and bright at the sides. Again, that doesn't happen with the cheaper Polaroid filter. Now I know the Polaroid isn't great and lacks a bit of sharpness, but when it outperforms a filter that's more than 4 times the price, I have to say I'm very disappointed.
I also got in touch with Tiffen directly about the problem with shooting into the sun. A week later and still no reply.
So if you get a good quality Tiffen filter, well and good and I'm glad you're getting good usage out of it, but for others beware. Don't be surprised if your Tiffen filter doesn't perform as well as it should. I also get the impression there may be issues with quality control.
Anyway, I'm returning mine and am going to go for the new improved Lightcraft MKII and see how I fare with that.
Only negative thing I would say is they should make the arrow more visible once applied on lense. Most times the arrow appears near the bottom of filter.
'Neewer 77mm ND Fader Neutral Density Adjustable Variable Filter (ND2 to ND400)'
and needless to say it's absolutely terrible! Soft beyond belief, even for 1080P video. If you've used a variable ND that's softened your images (hopefully only test images) or video, you need to check out this Tiffen! Absolutely amazing, in test images I cannot see any reduction in detail on my Nikon D800 images and video test footage.
Incredibly impressive, well worth the investment. Comes with a nice storage pouch too, maybe a little wide, but quite frankly who cares, you can always buy a smaller replacement if you really want. Well packaged.
being a variable filter it gave me flexibility and ease of adjustment very quickly, although it is not that strong a filter and in very bright sunlight an extra two stops of light would help it has worked perfectly fine for all my filming.
the tiffen filter is very well made and to be honest, before i purchased this filter i checked out other brands and reviews and for the price of this filter i really don't think you can get better.
to sum up : this filter performed extremely well causing no issues and i strongly believe that there is no better nd filter for the money that would better this one.
Very little is any vignetting at high NDs, worth the price. I also have a 52mm lens ring and I bought a step-up/down to make it fit that one as well.
Overall I would recommend as the quality of Tiffen's filters is good, this is my second VND from Tiffen after 82mm (I am using them both parallel on two cameras, if not I would have just used step up rings)
