Thread: Solar eclipse today, what camera settings?

  1. #1

    Default Solar eclipse today, what camera settings?

    Can the following settings work? I will use a KM A200 to shoot it. Unfortunately I don't have
    any filters.
    ISO 100, F/8, 1/3200s?

    Filters have got to by multi-coated or else see lots of flare and multiple ghost images. CP filters also can help.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    DONT POINT YOUR CAMERA AT THE SUN UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE BLINDED PERMANENTLY.

    THAT WILL BE YOUR FIRST AND LAST TIME FOR YOU TO SHOOT SOLAR ECLIPSE.

    "...Starting at dawn in eastern Brazil, then sweeping across northern Africa and central Asia before ending at sunset in Mongolia,...."

    A special solar filter is required, best if u can get H-alpha filter, u can even see/capture the flame that shoot out from the surface of the sun.

    no solar eclipse to see...how about some lunar eclipse?
