X Pro1 dust reduction system?
May 12, 2012

I am toying with the idea of getting this camera but a search of this site yields no results regarding sensor shake or other type of dust reduction ability. Does this camera even have that?

yes it does. Mine often does a sensor clean after changing lenses and sometimes as you switch it on/off....

You can set it to clean the sensor whenever you turn the camera on, or whenever you turn the camera off. You can also select sensor cleaning from the menu at any time.

I've had sticky dust, but a quick blow from an compressed air cylinder shifted everything. I use 'Green Clean' but any good make designed for photographic use should be OK.

IMPORTANT

Always keep these air cylinders upright and still - And bring the camera to the cylinder not the other way round.

Also try not to use them 'full blast' unless you have to.

Many cylinders use liquid propellants which can foul the sensor if you shake the can or misuse them.

Finally always test on a clean UV filter to check that only clean air is coming out before pointing it at the sensor!....

Having the sensor in the X-Pro1 near the lens mount makes life easier.
