The Raspberry Pi 3 has the same Xenon photoflash reset problem as the RPi2, albeit at a much reduced level. Did they implement a fix?
There is also a photoflash problem with the Broadcom BCM43438 WiFi & Bluetooth chipset. The internet connection will lockup when exposed to sufficient Xenon flash light.
