Probably a stupid question, but I don't have a solar filter, will a CPL suffice?
Hmm okay im growing a lil concern because im hearing warnings to not take apicture of a an eclipse with out the solar filter, so lets say I dont have one, and im on a Nikon DX...all i gotta do is use the black paper of the disket and place it infront of my lens? What will happen anyway to the camera if it doesnt have the solar filter?
i tried shooting with just my lens witohut anything last february, wont be able to see the slor eclipse without the diskette cos too bright. or maybe becuase its a partial? anw, tmls is a partial one, wont see the full thing. so sad
Using a tub of water to reflect sunlight, even if the bottom is black, is not safe to observe the eclipse with. Water has a reflectivity of 5%. That is, it reflects 5% while allowing 95% to pass through. While this seems small, it is still 5000 times bigger than the 0.00001 considered to be safe for solar observation."
I guess the answer is no.
Also, the diskette film is a ring...guess I have some cutting to do, unless there's another way to work round this.
i managed to see the total eclipse more than ten years ago in Sarawak.. very interesting.. Wondering when can view it again and took a great photo of it...
yaya....i remember about 10 years back i oso c the eclipse in sabah b4...tat time at sabah kudat a lot of ang mo go there n take photo..... and we as a normal people oso kepo lah....a lot of our kampong ppl use the used silm stack 4 to 5 pcs and view, for out family we use a piece of class which people burn those metal use to put on the mask 1, we use tat to view....is very nice ...tat time the eclipse take about halg hr to complete is i din remember wrongly....if use naked eye to c ah....really very eye pain oh....better dun, and eventhough use those used film or watever filter oso, try nt to c trhoug too long hours...nt good for the eyes....nt worth it lah....eyes are very precious to use...
