As you saw on the video, the camera was fuming.
I know most of you guys, put in a lot of money to get yourself these cameras, and it will be unfortunate if you lost your Camera this way. Even worse lose your Eye in the process.
The takeaway here is that if you’re going to try and get a good shot of the eclipse, use a solar filter. (Here’s some helpful tips on how to do that.) If you’re not planning on photographing the event, you should still get some certified solar glasses for your eyes. If you didn’t manage to get your hands on a pair, you can always make a pinhole projector.
