comment How to film a eclipse of the sun with a phone cam?
Actually that's not bad, but you needed a much darker filter for sure. You gave it a try, and that's what is important! My video of the eclipse is terrible, but I was out there, in a good location, giving it my best with the stuff I had at the time. Next time I'll be more ready! I've tried three times to photograph a lunar eclipse, with good equipment, and failed every time. I've spent six or seven hours staring at the moon and I'm a better photographer because of it, even though I didn't get my amazing eclipse shot.

Only when it's aimed at the sun. With the filter, that's all you'll be able to see. The video shows that. Just tape it over the lense.

If you damage it though, you won't be able to take any pictures. A photo of your sensor burning up isn't going to be interesting in any way. If you manage to get some good shots, please post them here.

I mean actual camera film. I used 35mm negatives for the video. I just bought the film and had them throw it directly into the machine, to develop the "darkest" negative possible. No prints are needed, only the negatives. Sunglasses are no where near dark enough. The problem with photographing an eclipse is that you'll focus an image of the sun onto your sensor. That's how we used to burn ants when I was kid. It WILL BURN YOUR SENSOR, and permanently damage your camera, if the light isn't filtered a lot.

comment What causes darker areas on a still from a video stream when moving light source has passed through the image just before it has been taken?
I see ghosting on the truck too, and the brake lights of the car. It's blending multiple frames together.

That's what it looks like to me - noise reduction. In the bottom image you can see multiple impressions of the car have been blended together. It's just failing to do that correctly with the bright parts of the frames. It probably CAN'T interpolate the track of that light, and probably isn't trying.

comment Why do my photos “glow”?
To me, it looks like you're on EV+1 - these look slightly over-exposed. It's easy to accidentally set that exposure compensation.
