Default Photographing a weld in progress

My husband has an Oly 2500L and would like to take some photos in a welding shop but is concerned about possible damage to the camera from the intense light. Does anyone know if he can safely take pictures of a weld in progress seeing as how it's nearly equivalent to photographing the sun?

Hi Bcoultry__

You might try this...

Take a piece of welding glass and attach to front of lens and take a few photos.

Since a digcam will survive a direct shot at the sun, I would think you would not need the welding glass.

You could also check w/Olympus about it

What a thought! It never occurred to me to ask Olympus. Where's my brain? Thank you for clearing the cobwebs.
