    Default Sunset pics- damage to CCD / CMOS?

    Does taking pictures of sunset (or very bright subject) cause damage to the CCD / CMOS in the long run?

    Your question has been much debated, and there really is no definate answer. However videocamera sensors are similar and they work round the clock for years without noticable image degradation so the life of the sensor in a digital stills camera is more than likely to far exceed the life expectency of the body itself.
