Canon 350D, aka Digital Rebel XT, using multiple folded welding sheet as filter.
This is a photo taken when the eclipsed sun went behind a thin patch of clouds, giving the very distinct "smoky" or "foggy" appearance to the event. The blue tint is due to the welding sheet used as a filter in front of the camera.
