Verzion Wireless wants to make sure you’re prepared to capture the moment with the following tips for great smartphone images, whether or not you’re on the path.

Top 5 smartphone eclipse tips:

  • Turn off the flash.
  • Don’t zoom into the eclipse (but do use optical telephoto if you have that option, like on Google Pixel 8 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S24+, etc.)
  • Use burst mode to best capture the eclipse’s diamond ring.
  • If your smartphone has the ability to shoot in RAW mode, use it to capture a more natural eclipse.
  • A smartphone lens cover like this one will help you see the moon begin to eclipse the sun (and possibly spot some sunspots along the way).

You should not look at the solar eclipse without glasses specially designed and certified for viewing an eclipse.
