About three years ago I purchased a 4" x 4" solar filter film and made a solar filter using an old uv filter for my Sigma 50-500mm lens. I used it to take photos of the solar eclipse in 2017. I used that filter to take these shots so I was looking through the camera viewfinder to take the photos so I never looked directly at the sun. I started zoomed out to 50mm to make it easier to find the sun and then zoomed in to 500mm. I did check the filter carefully beforehand to make sure there were no tears or holes.
I should remember that. From time to time I am distracted by interesting details in a view, and I forget that looking into the sun can be harmful. For instance taking pictures at trees with the sun beyond the trees.

In such situations an EVF is safer.

You put the "after" first and then the "before".
