No Flash Photography! (Eclipse cartoon)
(c)2012 Bill Kramer
Taking a picture of everyone using a flash camera is simply not a good idea. The flash blinds people for a few seconds and that is very bad during a total solar eclipse. Anyone who was wearing an eyepatch will instantly loose the dark adaptation they spent all that time to achieve. The photograph will not look all the interesting either - that is, if your camera survives the after photograph attack.
