So I did something the other day we are all advised never to do. I looked at the sun through my camera. Well, i’ve done that before and learned my lesson, but this time I wanted to see what would happen with live view. (not for long either, I didn’t want to burn my sensor or something…)

So I had my 5DII with a 100mm Macro lens. I set the camera to live view and stopped down to F32. (1/125 at ISO 200) I was expecting some kind of sun star and / or weird flare. I never expected this! No post processing either, this is basically straight from the camera. How interesting!
