Capturing the Eclipse
Sunday, 21 June 2020
On this evening, the longest day in the Northern Hemisphere, you will have the opportunity to see a partial solar eclipse throughout Japan. If we miss this day, we must wait to look up to the next solar eclipse in Japan until 2030.
We will shoot the solar eclipse using our optical glass filter. Please look forward to the photos on our website next week!
*Please note that it may not be possible to shoot depending on the weather. However, we will post the observations on our website.
【Update on 25 June 2020】Shooting report was posted.

【Partial Solar Eclipse 2019】
Location: Our factory (Izumisano, Osaka, Japan)
Date: Around 10:30 am, 6 January, 2019,
Weather: Cloudy with light rain
Filter: Heat absorption filter, ISK series+ ND filter
Camera: SONY α350
Lens: SONY DT 18-200mm F3.5-6.3
Although Izumisano City, Osaka, where our head office is located, was in not good weather, we were able to observe and photograph a little from the gap between the clouds after the peak of the solar eclipse. The photos for solar observation were taken using "the ISK series" that can transmit visible light and absorb/ cut ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths with "the ND filter".
【Partial Solar Eclipse 2009】
The photos were taken with “the IUV365” that can transmit ultraviolet light and absorbs/ cut visible light attached to the camera. By having a transmission band in the infrared range, those are fantastic reddish photos.
