    If you shine the flash from an iPhone for example directly into the camera and truetone sensor, can you do any damage? I was inspecting the screen while it was off for micro scratches..

    I know it sounds dumb but I don’t want to criple the sensor or the facetime camera :rolleyes:

    If it’s safe in direct sunlight then I would imagine it’s fine.

    It obviously depends on the power of your flash and how you use it.
    I have a flash that can definitely damage cameras

    Not a chance that will do any damage.
