EEVblog #716 - Raspberry Pi 2 Xenon Flash Problem Explained
Dave investigates and explains the Raspberry Pi 2 Xenon flash problem. Where the Pi2 will reset and lockup when a photo is taken of it from a Xenon flash camera.
How and why is the photoelectric effect responsible?
UPDATE: I have tried a UV filter in front of the flash and the problem remains.
