    Hello,

    I've just been watching Sky at Night and I believe that there is going to be a partial solar eclipse in October. I would like to be able to film this with my camcorder and I was wondering whether it is possible to buy a solar filter for a Sony HC22 Camcorder. I've had a look around the internet and I can't seem to find anywhere that sells them.

    Any Advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Lee D

    Polariser & ND4 or an ND8 should do it
    Lock shutter (ie. turn auto off) and use manual exposure.

    Use the viewfinder or LCD to find your shot, don't look directly into the sun!!!
