Sun Eclipse Lens cover … Create One..

June 20, 2011 9 comments

How to create a sun eclipse cover for the camera lens you have?

What do you need?
* Cardboard – any color.
* A4 paper or any paper that can be twisted around the lens.
* Camera Film.
* Tape (Masking/Duct Tape)
* The lens that you want to use. (I prepare two covers for my Nikon 70-300mm, and Sigma 50-500mm)

Assemble it..
* Put the lens on the card board and draw a circle around the lens.
* Draw a rectangle in the middle of the circle and cut it out,
The cutting area must be smaller than the film width/height.

The RED rectangular is the Film size, you have to cut the GRAY (Smaller) rectangular

* Fix the film on the card,

for now, you have the cardboard and the Film taped on it you need another one step to start shooting the sun in the mid of day.

* Make a Cylinder of the A4 and use the tape to fix it.
* Place the Card inside the Cylinder (on the top of one side – left 1cm) and use the tape to fix it.



Now you have this, and it’s complete, just fix it on the top of the lens and shot the sun.

Here is a shots for the sun and it was great to see the small black spot on the sun! i don’t know what is it but it’s there you can see it, too make sure it is not a dust on my lens; i move the camera to the right and left but the spot dose’t move which mean it it not on the camera it is something on the sun or close to it it may be a planet… Have Fun
