Lovely! Never believe what "they" say!My wife and daughter came down to work, next to the river, with the inflatable paddleboard. I had the XT1, the 18-55, and the 50-230 with me, and we all got on it and she paddled us out into the middle of the Columbia River, which was blessedly calm today. I shot this through my viewing glasses, and this is SOOC. Came out kinda cool... I heard prior that you "couldn't do it with the glasses and your camera." I say you can, dern it.
Great shot, Tony! It is totally overcast here, so looking forward to your photos.
Thanks guys. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.That solar film works really well Tony . . looking forward to more seeing more of your great eclipse adventure!
Mine weren't as dramatic as yours, Kyle, but I used the Intervalometer on both the X-T1 and X30 to get some neat time lapses. First the X-T1. This first pic shows the difference between 1321 local on the right and 1339 local on the left.I'm hoping Tony got more like the first one above, but later into the eclipse!
Thanks Bob. I could tell there was a light change, but to my eyes it wasn't nearly as dramatic as what the camera showed. I guess it's the same effect as trying to photograph the full moon on a cloudy night. Our eyes can see all of the detail in the moon and the clouds at the same time, but if you set the camera for a good exposure on the moon, any clouds not crossing the moon will be invisible.Very cool Tony . . was that amount of light change quite different from what your eyes saw?
