The Eclipse, a question or three

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Rick Helmke, Aug 16, 2017.

  1. Morning all,

    I had not had time until now to consider photographing the upcoming eclipse but it looks like weather permitting we'll get a good view. I understand all the caution about not viewing it without serious eye protection. Is there danger to the cameras? My plan for now is to shoot a film body with a medium length lens and not to view the eclipse through that camera at all. I plan to use a longer lens on a digital body though and plan to use live view to set up. Will this damage the film or that body and will there be damage to the digital camera? Will not using a protective filter cause general quality problems of some kind? Thanks.
