If I'm just going to be taking a landscape shot with the eclipsed sun in the background, do I need to use any special filter? The sun will be just large enough to tell its eclipsed, not a full frame shot of it. Any suggestions would be helpful.


6D, G9, Sigma 50 1.4, Sigma 15mm Fisheye, Sigma 50 2.8 macro, Nikon 14-24G 2.8, Canon 16-35 2.8 II, Canon 24-105 f/4 IS, Canon 70-200 2.8 IS, tripod, lights, other stuff.

I know you can find many landscape shots with the full disk of the sun included. As you say it will be a small portion (percentage) of the pic, and I don't see the fact that it will be eclipsed has any bearing on the shot you want to take. This pic I pulled off the net as an example.
