Eclipse Photography Prep

Took some solar filter film, generously supplied by FuzzyGeff, and made my own 58mm filter for my Canon PowerShot S5IS.

Cut the film to fit inside a normal everyday 58mm UV filter, then screw two of them together.  Interestingly, this creates a solar filter that is tougher than the standard ones since there's a pane of glass on either side of the fragile film.

I've also made a bit of film for FuzzyGeff's larger lens.  Without his filters here, I can't really tell if it will fit, but I used the dimensions he supplied, so he can't complain too loud if it's wrong, can he?
