I’m a welder and want to know if I can film me welding pointed at the arc for dramatic effect without damaging my hero 5 black. I have done this with my phone, but want it in HD. The weld splatter could and would damage the camera with no question, that’s why it would be filmed from further away. From 50’ away from the arc, you can look in the direction of the weld, but anything up close can damage your eyes and even lead to a sunburn.
