I used a Sony HD handycam to record several years ago without any issues. Sensors are not quite the same as the human eye and not subject to the same kind of damage. The electronics act as a buffer, not passing on the same light spectrum that causes the damage to the human eye.
Of course, check with the manufacturer, today’s optics and electronics are more advances than what I used 7 years ago.
