August 21st’s Total Solar Eclipse could mean certain doom if you photograph it with your camera or phone. Here’s how to prevent that.

It boils down to this: If you’re taking a wide-angle shot of the eclipse, you should be fine. According to Apple:

You can point your iPhone at the sun right now to take photos and the camera’s sensor and lens would not be damaged. The same is the case for the solar eclipse.

If you’re using a Nikon or Canon DSLR with a powerful zoom lens, that’s where you could run the risk of doing damage to your camera. Many photography experts recommend you not take pictures at all, instead opting for a time-lapse or high quality video of the eclipse. If you’re including the sky/scenery around the sun and moon, your device should be protected.

Here’s a few more things to know about the Total Solar Eclipse happening August 21st:
