I've heard alot of discussion about whether using camera flash (onboard or external) is safe for babies. Especially for those under 6 months old, the tale is not to use it.

Apart from being scared from it... is there any research that shows it to be harmful to them?

How old must a baby be before is it ok to use flash? without having to wear these = :cool:

Even if there is a research to say its safe, i will still not use it. The baby belongs to me, I wouldn't want to take the risk and trust other people's report. If later another report comes out and say its not say........ alamak!! Die liao........ by then maybe too late liao, and then u notice the baby cocked-eyed liao..........how then? hehehhe......

Play safe, keep the flash away.... u bounced or do whatever it is, its very very glaring for an adult (eyes). Baby's........ no way man!! :nono:

hi Fruche

Go to the Newbies forum and see my comments. I started a new thread 2 days ago on this.
