Digital cameras, sensors & a laser show...

Post by absque fenestris » Sat Nov 09, 2019 11:28 pm

I really wish I lived in a world where a warning like this was not necessary. On the other hand, this could be a heavy dose of Instant Karma for boneheads who hold up cameras at events link this ... I would not mind having to look at the irritatingly obvious displays if I knew cameras, cell phones, etc. were getting ruined.

Here a fast DuckDuck with the search input "Laser Flashlight" :

I simply can't judge whether all this things are inferior toys or something like a weapon - completely independent of my camera - but with regard to my eyes.
And that for the price of a throw-away toy.
