Any 10 stop filters that are 100% neutral in color?

From what I've read on the 10 stop filters have looked at, they all seem to have some sort of color cast.  Are there any 10 stop filters that don't have a color cast and are 100% neutral in color?

If yes, the makers would brag very loud about it…
hear anything?

Perfect neutrality is wish full thinking and WB is the
less critical of the parameter when shooting RAW.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Breakthrough has a close to neutral on their polarized filter, might be worth looking at their filters.  If not, all this can be fixed easily in Lightroom.

That would require perfectly consistent behavior across the entire wavelength spectrum. That's why it's a Holy Grail.

You're going to get some variance, and you'll have to correct in post. Your best bets for brands appear to be Breakthrough, NiSi, Formatt-Hitech. I use the latter and have no complaints.

Does it make any difference from square or circle filters?

Only with respect to system and convenience. The Formatt-Hitech circular filters, for example, are stackable. But circular only fit one lens size (without stepping rings). So I went with square. No regrets, as they make me slow down and be in the moment.
