A Canon patent from October, 2017 resurfaced on the Canon rumor mill today, and it describes something pretty innovative from the Japanese camera giant. The patent shows a lens adapter—ostensibly designed for a mirrorless camera—that features a built-in variable-voltage ND filter.
The ND filter component is "formed from an electrochromic device [or a liquid crystal element] which changes light transmittance on application of a voltage." That way, you could electronically and silently change the amount of light hitting your camera's sensor without stopping down the lens.
