I don't know if these statements are accurate?
Seems to me that intense sunlight, even with a wide angle lenses on GoPro, might burn a spot - although a small spot - on the sensor.
can anyone confirm or deny ??

i havent seen anything about putting a lens over the gopro. the only reason to is to have a smaller dot of the sun. what i have seen is that it would be best to do a time lapse video at a picure every 5 to 10 seconds. but what im not sure about is that i have seen use a high iso and a low iso does anyone know anything about what is better

If I remember correctly the history of ISO dates back to film, the higher the iso, the more sensitive to light or "faster" the film, and the photos would be grainier, but great for stop motion at super fast shutter speeds, the lower Iso were less sensitive to light, or "slower" but great for hi def details. Of course, the graininess and such doesn't apply, but a lower ISO should take some of the brightness out of the sun, while providing for darker sky. A nod to old-time photogs, bringing the concepts forward for translation from old tech to new tech. I could be remembering wrong, getting up there in years

Putting a filter over the camera lens will not change the field of view, just the amount of light coming through. I don't want a regular eclipse filter, it may be too intensely dark during totality. I just stopped by my ophthalmologist and picked up a pair of those shades they give you when they dilate your pupils, Not very strong, but better than nothing and not too strong
