    No. Especially with cheap sunglasses, it may cause more harm than good. You do not know if they cut out enough of the invisible IR and UV. By cutting out the visible light, your pupils will dilate and allow more light through and at the same time allow more IR and UV through if they are not adequately cut and you can't tell by just looking, and you get more exposure because you think it's ok.

    In fact ND filters for cams are just like their 'sunglasses'.

    Sunrise and sunset is ok because the atmosphere is already absorbing a lot of the light.

    I've read that if one wants to take pics of the details of the sun, then have to use ND400.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.
