Thanks for the advice and


Thanks for the advice and leads. The general opinion seems to be that it's OK to shoot MIG welding. I have to admit that I have done this a few times to date but have always been a bit worried about its effects on the sensor. I now have a small project that centres on MIG so my worries have resurfaced and I now use a Sony FS5 which would not be cheap to replace. As I said in my original post, I always use a UV filter to protect the lens from weld splatter, spot weld sparks and angle grinder fall-out but the sensor is a different consideration.
