When shooting a solar eclipse, even the lowest ISOs and fastest shutter speeds result in overexposed, blown-out images, and this filter is specifically designed to eliminate this. The filter fits into the standard 100x100mm-series holder. The solar eclipse filter is designed solely for solar and solar eclipse photography. It is not suitable for general long-exposure landscape photography, or for direct solar viewing with the naked eye.

SAFETY FIRST: Observing the Sun without the proper protection may result in serious personal injury, including permanent eye damage and blindness, and/or damage to equipment. Never point an optic at the sun without an approved solar filter on the front of the optic. For direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder, ensure your filter is ISO 12312-2 (also written as ISO 12312-2:2015) certified. Never use photographic neutral density filters for direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder.

question

Will this filter fit in a Cokin filter holder?
Asked by: Cynthia N.
Cokin has four different filter holder sizes. That is, a-, p-, z-pro and x-pro holders. Since the Lee 100x100mm solar eclipse filter is 100mm wide, only Cokin z-pro holder can accomodate it.

question

Where are the specs on the UV and IR, because it looks to me like this is just a 20 stop filter with no other protections?
Asked by: Gregory P.
In a word, no. It does not have any UV protection. I used this on a Sigma 150 - 500 lens, screwed the adapter into the UV filter already in place, and got some killer pictures of the eclipse. I was hoping to attach the last pic just before it went total, and the first one after so you could see the results. I did remove it during totality. I used a D-80 so the only time the sensors were exposed was when the shutter was open. They recommend that you don't use this filter for viewing in lieu of proper eye wear (probably the lawyers), but obviously had to in order to frame & focus. Both the camera and my right eye suffered no ill effects. I'm going to my daughters in upstate New York for the next one and will use this filter again. Also, to my knowledge, IR exposure is not a problem for the human eye. Unless your happen to be sitting in the oven. :-) Hope this helps.

question

Could/Would you get similar results if you stacked two 10-stop ND filters?
Asked by: Brian M.
The guides for photographing the sun and eclipses specifically state not to try to stack ND filters as they do not adequately block the harmful rays.
