Senor cleaning mode on Nex-6 is weak?
Hi. I own both the original NEX-5 and the new NEX-6, and I have couple lens as well so I change lens from time to time.
When I have dust problem on NEX-5, using the camera's cleaning mode and a blower always take care of the problem. But on NEX-6, the cleaning mode seems very weak, and I cannot remove the dust just with a blower anymore after using the cleaning mode.
On NEX-5, right after triggering the sensor cleaning mode, there is a tangible vibration on the camera and a sound that is loud enough for me to hear with the camera a few feet away from my ears. But on NEX-6, I don't feel the camera vibrate, and the only sound that come out from the camear is a very high pitch that is so weak that I can only hear with the camear pressing against my ears.
Is it normal? Does Sony dial down the strength of NEX's sensor cleaning mode after the original NEX-5?
I have to say I've never felt any vibration from my NEX-5 when running the cleaning mode. It doesn't seem to do anything like my A700, which does a high frequency vibration when running the cleaning mode.
To be honest, I've never seen either camera shake dust off on their own. It always has to be followed up with a rocket blower, and that often doesn't work either.
