I use Canon gear...have several bodies and lenses and am quite pleased with them.

Nice Capture...
What did you use as far as filters/protection?
I didn't want to risk frying my good stuff, so I used a GoPro 5 black with the solar blackout glasses over the lens.

No filter on this for totality. This was with my 1D Mark lV and a 400 2.8
Thanks

I actually had a couple as well and like you said, a pleasant surprise once I downloaded them from the camera!

I wish this one would have had better focus as I believe I bumped my focus ring when removing the solar filter.

This one was better as I realized what I had done.

yup that's it for totality

BTW, these are not flares, they are prominences :-)
