Jus wanna find out whether pointing and shooting at the sun will cause any damage to the lens or the sensor?
Thanks in advance!
There was a thread on this a couple of weeks back, try searching for it, may help u get a faster response
It is damaging to your eyes.
Depends on the hour. Sunrise or sunset is not so strong. Relatively safe to pointing and shooting at the sun.Originally Posted by heroneo99
the camera metering will take care of the exposure unless u try to overexpose the pictures.
if you take the shoot with special equipment youre photo cam will not be damaged
i always try to frame sun in my pics, so far so good...

If you are using a DSLR, won't the mirror protect the sensor? I think what you need to worry about is probably your eyes.
When the mirror flips up when you fire a shot, the metering system should be able to handle the excess light. What you need to worry about at this time would be lens flare.
