Realizing that there will be endless great video featuring close up shots of the upcoming eclipse, I would like to shoot wide and feature people witnessing the event, trees, etc..., with the sun somewhere in the frame.

Most of what I've read discourages shooting the sun directly at this time of day for the sake of one's sensor, but with a eclipse filter nothing but the sun shows up. Any thoughts? Shooting on a GH4

I know I am bit late, but mabey 2 cameras could be used here, one mounted on tripod, pointed up at the Sun and a Solar Filter on it and the other either hand held or on a Monopod
