Thanks Carlo, hopefully I come up with some original stuff but in the mean time it’s repeats of previous ideas :-P

then run the self cleaning mode on camera, when it stops, it will keep the IBIS sensor still. do not turn off and start cleaning.

Wow! You still have a full-time day job, right? How do you have time for all that work? :eek:

I was a very committed hard-worker until just two years ago and now I’m allergic to it. :p

and this is why I need to have my sensor cleaned...it is almost unusable right now at anything greater than f5.6...more than that and I spend more time cloning spots than I do shooting, editing or posting...its ridiculous...

forum: Sony Cameras

I've always wondered why mirrorless camera sensors remain exposed even if you turn the power off. DSLRs (at least Canon) have that physical curtain that falls onto the sensor when you turn the camera off. Very effective in keeping the dust out, regardless of the circumstances you change your lenses in.

There must be a reason for why mirrorless cameras don't have it...

well, that curtain is the mirror that projects the image into the viewfinder...to have a moving element like that requires depth to the camera body, depth that mirrorless wants to eliminate.

my guy cleaned the sensor, had it spotless...and in putting the lens back on, dust from the back of the lens got onto the newly cleaned sensor...and he had to clean it again...so...keep the rear element of your lenses cleaner too!

risk damaging the shutter.

DSLR's have a mirror in front, while mirrorless have the shutter right at the mount. if you change your lens and accidentally tilt the lens wrong or get your finger inside a little, you'de damage the shutter.

When I was shooting that aurora shot the other night I didn’t realise until I started driving home but I managed to get dog s#!t on both feet, my tripod leg and the front of my photo rucksack. I then got it on the back of my drivers seat when I placed the bag in the car. (Totally worth it though :-P). Managed to clean up everything but the bag still has a smell.

So - please shout out with your photo backpack/rucksack recommendations please. This is for my landscape kit and must be able to hold a tripod on the outside.

Thanks

Nope. If you look behind the mirror, there's a plastic curtain in front of the sensor. I'm guessing it's the shutter curtain programmed to stretch over the sensor when you turn your camera off.

That could be one explanation. Though the same risks apply vis-a-vis to an exposed sensor, the only difference being the damaged item.
