Your eyes can get damaged. It's a well known warning, hence pls avoid.

Does direct exposure to sun damage camera / sensor as well ? Lets
suppose if live view is used to protect eyes.

He was wanting to be picked up from there.

Once he was picked up from there look how the reaction changed!!!

I thought looking at the evening sun (about to set) was okay for one or two seconds. I can see my house owner doing 'sun gazing' everyday in the morning when the sun just rises up.

@mobike: Beautiful road! Wish the photo was more vivid, you can also open up the levels a bit.
@rjvora: Cute baby! your son?

Through the camera, at zoom - pls dont. May be at no zoom, you could do a quick check since it is as good as looking at the sun with naked eyes. If your camera only allows you to see through the display, it should still be fine. I'm not sure about the damage to the sensor, but atleast the sensor can be replaced. Not your eyes.

Is your house owner gazing directly or through the view finder ?

OT
@condor: Yes he is gazing directly. I think he a proponent of sungazing - they think that sun-gazing will give them increased energy levels and decreased appetite.

Anirban,

Thank you. I am not sure if it's actually the reflection. Because, the drops appeared green from all angles.

Clevermax,

Even the sensor can get spoilt if exposed to direct sunlight for a long period of time. That's why the advice is not to use mirror lockup when shooting sun rise or sun set.

@Hw, the sensor will get exposed only for a very short duration right? And in the normal position, the sunlight will be diverted to the eye-piece through the penta mirror / prism, so even the shutter curtain won't be hit by focused sunlight, so I think that's ok. Am I right?

During the recent solar eclipse shooting, I kept my camera on a tripod directly pointing at the sun for may be several minutes. I find no problem with the camera so far.

However, things will be different in a camera with live view and if you are using that mode or the silent mode.

True. But many people couple mirror lock up with timer. In those cases, the sensor can get affected due to long exposure to sun rays (or so I have heard). In your case (the solar eclipse), the sensor was not exposed directly to sun, so it's ok I guess.


Anyways, continuing with the butterfly theme, here are some more.

I guess, there is some compression problem with these photographs :(.
