PSA: Don’t film laser tattoo removals unless you too want to fry a $2,200 camera: Digital Photography Review


Laser programs used at concert events and even self-driving vehicles are identified for damaging digicam sensors, however now there’s yet one more factor so as to add to the checklist — tattoo laser removing lasers, even when the laser is not being pointed instantly on the digicam.

As sadly demonstrated within the 37-second video above, Andy Boyd destroyed the sensors inside his $2,200 Sony a7S II when he was filming a laser tattoo removing.

Within the video description, he writes:

‘Scorching tip: Do not report laser tattoo removing on…something. You may see with every pulse the sensor exhibits new harm. The restore value was about as a lot as a brand new digicam so attempt to keep away from this. Membership lasers can do that too however we might by no means seen the reflection of a laser beam do harm, solely when the beam itself hits the sensor.’

Hopefully you are by no means in a scenario the place you are requested to movie a tattoo removing — particularly one which reads ‘I’m juicy’ with a strawberry subsequent to it — however within the occasion you’re, both use a digicam you do not thoughts destroying or cross up the chance as an entire.
