14 Tips for Solar Viewing and Photography Safety

Product Description

When viewing or photographing the sun, or any phase of a partial solar eclipse, remember that you MUST observe safe practices to prevent damage to your eyes and/or equipment (but mostly to your eyes).

  1. NEVER look directly at the sun with your naked eyes. Permanent damage to your eyesight, up to and including blindness, may result.

  2. During a total solar eclipse, eye protection is NOT required during periods of totality when the viewer is in the path of totality. Totality is bookmarked by the “diamond ring effect.” Annular eclipses, even during maximum eclipse, still require eye protection.

  3. ONLY use solar viewing glasses sold by a reputable dealer (like B&H) and ensure that they meet current ISO 12312-2 standards.

  4. INSPECT all solar viewing gear and filters for damage and tiny holes. If damaged, DO NOT use.

  5. DO NOT point a lens at the sun unless the optics are fitted with a PROPER solar filter.

  6. DO NOT look through the optical viewfinder of an unfiltered SLR camera when it is pointed at or near the sun.

  7. DO NOT look through the viewfinder of a rangefinder camera when it is pointed at or near the sun.

  8. DO NOT point any camera directly at the sun (including DSLRs, mirrorless, and point-and-shoot style cameras) unless the lenses have PROPER solar filtration.

  9. DO NOT use your camera’s optical viewfinder if you are using an ND-type “solar” filter. Use Live View or an electronic viewfinder (EVF) only. We recommend a metal or Mylar-type certified solar filter for photography. DO NOT use an ND-type filter as eye protection for direct solar viewing through any lens.

  10. DO NOT use drop-in lens filters for solar protection.
