That is sad, but it will happen again many times in 2024.

You're right! I was surprised at the amount of damage it did and I kinda felt sorry for the guy with the 600mm lens. That had to hurt the ole pocketbook... Although, it was probably rented. Hopefully he got the insurance on it.

The article said that even if they had the insurance, they sent out several reminders & tips warning of the dangers of photographing the eclipse without proper protection, so, it's considered neglect. These will be out-of-pocket expenses for the renters. :cry:

Maybe I was being a bit overcautious, but even though I was using a class 5 Baader filter, I covered the filter itself with a piece of white cardboard –an impromptu lens cap– and uncovered it only every 5 minutes –my set interval– to take the exposures. Possible damage to the camera's innards was making me mighty nervous.

very interesting. I read it both ways before the eclipse, arguments both for and against damage to digital equipment. I stayed protected, glad I did!

Check out this video, if you haven't seen it already.

Interesting video.... but my question is this:

The video showed what happened to the sensor in the camera... what was happening to the shutter blades in that VERY EXPENSIVE lens? I would think they also suffered very expensive damage to the lens?!?!?!

Very well done!!

During the totality were you able to take off the filter then return the filter at the end of totality? I did not see any movement of the setup....

Excellent job! :-)

Thank you for the kind words!

I did remove the solar filter about 15 seconds before totality to get the Diamond Ring and Baily's Beads. The solar filter went back on about 15 seconds after the end of totality.

For the video, I put the images I wanted to use in Photoshop; each one as a layer. Then I used the Layer Difference feature to line them up one by one. It took a while... ;-)a

yea unfortunately notices went out a few days prior warning that due to rental periods being during the eclipse, any sun damage to equipment was not covered by the standard insurance provided, they even gave the option to cancel the insurance, or the entire order all together if you didn't feel comfortable.

I rented a 7dii, 1.4xiii extender, and the 100-400ii lens for this, here is my humble contribution shooting the sun for the very first time using a $20 slip on filter for 90mm telescope tubes I got from B&H, 0 equipment issues...don't understand why people were so negligent with all the warnings going around...

I gave a pass on less than 100% - been there, seen that. But total was a must see. Here is a short video slide show of my view from Glendo, Wyoming USA, just 4.5 miles (or so) from dead center line. Shot with Canon 60D, Canon 100-400L (series 1) hand held.
