    A Bit of the Solar Eclipse at Sunset

    Pixel, yeah, you got very lucky there. Even at max coverage, it was still too bright to get any pictures for us. Congrats!! :)

    Solar Eclipse May 20, 2012

    I got several pics like this using a #14 welders glass fitted over a Pringles can. Not sure what else I can do with these to get better details.

    A Bit of the Solar Eclipse at Sunset

    This is all I got using the #14 welders glass. When the sun was almost covered, I tried getting a picture with the camera at f/32, 1/4000 and it was still too bright. Maybe I should get myself a ND filter. I even shot in RAW. Anyone has any tips to get anything better out of the RAW images...

    A Bit of the Solar Eclipse at Sunset

    WOW! That's awesome!! I got several shots of crescent but since I used the welders glass, everything came out just yellow/green. Did you use any sort of ND filter or something?

    Annular Solar Eclipse

    yeah, I just took like 50+ pictures of the eclipse and even at its max coverage, it was still so freakin bright. Maybe if you have a ND filter, you can increase the exposure to something like 1/4000 and increase f-stop to like 32 or something, you can get a picture, but it'll still be too bright...

    Solar Eclipse this weekend

    That's what I thought so too man. All the solar eclipse path videos/articles say to view the eclipse you'll have to travel north to Reno or Redding and was also asking my wife if she'll be intersted in taking a trip up there. But, on the news and some websites, they say we will be able to see...

    Tripod/Monopod combos. Useful or not?

    hmm, thanks for the response buckster and others. The thing is, the Sony has a great stabilization system. The only reason I might want a tripod/monopod are for videos and slow shutter speeds. I'll give it more thought. :)

    Tripod/Monopod combos. Useful or not?

    This sounds like a great idea to me...the newer tripods which also transform into a Monopod. Is it practical or just a gimmick? Are there any out there who use them both? Or does it leave you wishing you had a tripod with you? Recently, I took a tripod to my kid's spring program at school...

    Light weight tripod

    I have been researching a lot about tripods as well. Sirui has got a lot of great reviews. however, even with max height, they come to only 53" or something. I would like to extend the top column as little as possible. Lately, I've been researching the "tripod with inbuilt monopod"...

    Need Help before 8..

    Everybody would say RAW is better. Then you can use Photoshop or similar software to churn out a jpeg to your taste.
