Solar Eclipse - 5DmkII and Sony EX-3

Just wanted to share my work for the day, I've been covering the solar eclipse as its path went over China. Video: China watches the solar eclipse | Science | guardian.co.uk

Sadly because of storm clouds I didn't get a view of the sun during the total eclipse but did witness the darkness and a partial eclipse afterwards. I'll try uploading a HD version on Vimeo later.

My gear got a bit wet and so its currently drying out in my hotel room Video: China watches the solar eclipse | Science | guardian.co.uk

Very nice footage Dan! The only thing that drives me nuts is camera flashes when shooting with the 5DII. I noticed quite a bit of that going on in the vid, but there's not much you can do to avoid it eh? Again, very nice footage. Makes me wish that I was there.

The HD version is now up on Youtube here YouTube - China watches the solar eclipse

Ryan, you're right the flashes drive me nuts too. To be fair no other camera could have shot that stuff available light and get as good a result anyway. Maybe in the future Canon can give us something like the strobe correction firmware they just put in their HPX-300 model.
