Re: Videoing the eclipse

Haha Donald, that's what I decided as well. I thought about getting filters and going somewhere, but decided to just save my money and time. This is going to be the most over-shared event in many years, don't think I could contribute much on my own.

It's funny, Carbondale IL is the place where it will be the longest in the US. My mothers family lived just a few miles from there and I used to visit frequently. But that was long ago and they're all gone now.

Hope everyone views it safely and doesn't do any damage to their cameras!

Re: Videoing the eclipse

Well guys, I just got home from watching the 100% eclipse from a State Park in South Carolina. First, I must give credit to the SC State Troopers for doing such a magnificent job of keeping people moving on the interstates and providing assistance to everyone that needed help or directions. Now, the eclipse was magnificent!! This was my second one (Washington State Nov. 1979). I decided not to take my XF300 because like others said, there will be millions of shots of it on the web. I wont be around for the next one, but I'm sure glad I caught this one. Bob

Re: Videoing the eclipse

Here in Northen California it was partial and very cloudy.
Normally we have blue skies but Murphy's law applied here too. :(
