Re: tips needed for taking photos of the full solar eclipse

I was fortunate to experience a total eclipse in the UK back in August 1999. I would use a special sun filter (not just a ND filter) over the camera lens at all times and NOT view through the optical viewfinder as this could be dangerous for your eyes and even the sensor of your camera. There are plenty of people here who have taken excellent eclipse shots - I hope they will be able to expand on what I have written here
