Sony RX100 VA Review

The Sony RX100 VA is one of the best portable pocket cameras on the market. It’s great for Vlogging and adventure filming, too. Aaron took it on his expedition to Antarctica and filmed his entire documentary for 3 months with this camera. The camera shoots in 1080p and does amazingly well for a small camera. The flip screen is a nice addition. Aaron has filmed several shows with it and used the camera on multiple continents and countries with this camera. People rave about it. Aaron does an unboxing and talks about the overview of the camera in this video and why he chose it over the RX100 VI for his purposes.

Aaron also talks about his tricks of how he uses 2-device recording to get GREAT AUDIO while using the RX100.

Keepsake Notes Section

Here are the note sections you can write down in your Wyoming Total Eclipse Guide:
  • Who was I with?
  • What did I see?
  • What did I feel?
  • What did the people with me think?
  • Where did I stay?
Years later you can read about your family memories with this book. For some, this may be the one and only total eclipse they will ever see.

Eclipse Photography

Photographing an eclipse is actually pretty dangerous. The author partly fried the inside of his D300s during the 2012 partial eclipse. Oops! His Nikon still works but it was a good lesson. It was like photographing a military laser beam.
The book also explains how to photograph the total eclipse. The difference between shooting a partial and a total eclipse is massive. Your exposure goes from, well, the sun, all the way to starlight in a few seconds. Can you shoot 11 bracketed shots in 2 minutes under pressure? That’s what it takes to capture that corona and the stars.

Wyoming Total Eclipse Guide Photography Locations

sun over grand tetonWhere are some good locations to photograph the eclipse from? The book has loads of locations, how to get there, and where to stand to take the shot you want.
Some locations are well known, others are secret and quite unexpected. There is only one place in the entire region that you can get the total eclipse anywhere close to the Grand Teton. And it’s not where you might think.

Photography Filters for a Total Eclipse

eclipse imageWhat density filter will you use for the partial eclipse? You’re looking at the sun. Not just any filter will do the job.
If you think you’ll use your iPhone or Android to photograph the eclipse, you’ll end up with a sun image that’s 40 pixels wide. The book has a simulation of different focal lengths for full-frame and crop sensors.

Where will the sun be?

The book explains exactly where the sun will be. Whether you’re in Jackson, Casper, Douglas, Riverton, or Grand Teton National Park, you need to know where to view the eclipse from. For this particular total eclipse, basic viewing is easy! But getting a good photograph is a big challenge. The Wyoming Total Eclipse Guide gives you that information and more.
