Are a lot of closeup photos (3 ft or less) using a red-light auto focus on a digital camera harmful to the eyes of an infant?
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

That is an excellent question.

The answer is, no they are not. You can take all the pictures, even if you use red light auto focus as well as the red reflex reducing strobe function as much as you want. It will not harm the baby at all.
