I have a really weird question but is bothering me
Today i wanted to inspect the camera lenses on my s20 ultra , so i took another phone and start the flashling and hover it over the camera lens so i can see the cameras better , it was just for my interest.
But , after i finished my ,,search,, i thought wait, can the camera sensor be damaged by the phone flash ,did i just make a terrible mistake , so , that is my question and i have absolutely no idea if i did something bad or not , and btw , i put here some photos with a strange dot that i get when pointing at my lightbulb in the room , thank you in advance for any response i hope my phone is ok!!?
In most cases, the green spot, haze, or flare will happen when taking a photo with a strong source of light in the background. For example, if you’re taking a photo of the sunrise, sunset, or just about anything with the sun or a bright light somewhere in your field of view, or even outside the field of view, you will likely end up with that green spot, some lens flare, or haze.
It appears due to the light coming in at a specific angle and reflecting off the surface inside the camera, or the lens cover. Regardless of the phone model/camera, you may be using, this will present itself on most devices.
This is not a defect of your phone either. It’s just physics playing tricks on you, and to be fair, virtually any camera, big or small, can be subject to the same issue, although this can be more easily alleviated on standalone DSLR cameras by purchasing various filters for the lens.
Hope that answers your question, enjoy taking many more pictures with your S20 Ultra!
Yes, your camera will be fine. Only if you were taking a 2-hour long exposure at a very bright light source could you potentially damage a camera sensor, for shutter speeds under a second you don't need to worry at all.
