Melting your camera 101

A great demonstration of why you can not photograph the eclipse without the appropriate filter on the lens.   Remember being a kid and there was always that one kid who wanted to fry ants with a magnifying glass?  Its the same principle and effect except with your expensive camera body and a much stronger lens.

Check out the smoke!   Too Cool!    Especially since it’s not my camera!

Now imagine what that would do to your eye balls.
