I was planning to photograph the solar eclipse on sunday, however I am reading you must use a solar filter.  (My plan was to use a welding filter.)  Hand held in front of my lenes.  Now I am afraid this is not the proper protection for the camera sensor.  Has anyone tried anything other than the recomended solar filter?   I wasn't expecting to get my best shot ever, but wanted to try for something.  As of right now I have cancelled my plans.
