Can the camera image sensor be damaged by laser?

    Do not directly expose the Lens to beams such as laser beams. This may cause damage to the image sensor and cause the camera to malfunction.

    Tips for avoiding such damage:

    1. Avoid exposing your camera lens during laser events / display.
    2. Always use the lens cap to cover the lens or store in camera bag when not using your camera.

    Note: In either outdoor or indoor environment when there is a laser display, tendency of direct or indirect (laser beam bounce from reflective object) damage to the camera CMOS Sensor is still very high.
