Close your Z's shutter while swapping lenses!

To avoid exposing the sensor while changing lenses.

  • Turn ON your Z
  • Remove the battery
  • Replace the lens
  • Replace the battery
  • You'll get a warning to re-open the shutter by pressing the shutter button

NOTE:  I use power saving with airplane mode ON and leave my camera ON most of the time.  I often forget to turn my camera off changing lenses in a hurry.  I know that isn't great for many reasons.  This habit will help me with that as well.
