Today I’m going to show you everything you need to photograph the transit of Mercury across the Sun. It will happen very soon, on November 11, 2019. And it’s a rare and amazing spectacle to photograph.
This solar eclipse coming over the USA in a few days certainly has whipped people up into a frenzy. A buying frenzy, getting whatever they can to protect their eyes and their cameras from the sun’s potentially hazardous effects. It seems, though, that some customers might not be as well protected as they thought. Amazon have now started issuing refunds on unverifiable eclipse eyewear.
As reported by The Verge, some vendors are selling counterfeit or unsafe versions. And now, Amazon is cracking down on these sellers. Product pages are being entirely removed from the site, and customers are being refunded. Along with a warning to not use them for the eclipse. But you don’t need to return them in order to qualify for your refund.
The review includes high ISO noise comparisons between the D800E, D810, D810A and D3s, and covers some of the camera’s new astro-oriented features.
Göran also shares sample images of daylight photos and tests how well this camera performs, despite Nikon’s recommendation not to use it for ‘general photography’.
