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:

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