Where to get time-lapse gear
 
ND Filters are the easiest and cheapest way to get a true "holy grail" sunset. With 9 or 10 stops of ND you can shoot in bulb mode in daylight at the lens widest aperture. In bulb mode there is no exposure Tv stepping and at the widest AV value there is no lens aperture flicker. When you remove the ND filter, GBTimelapse automatically changes the bulb time so there is no apparent image brightness change.
