In-camera sensor cleaning faulty? [solved]


#1

Hi all,

I have recently noticed that there is no longer any vibration when the in-camera sensor cleaning is activated. I clearly remember some vibration when “sensor cleaning” appears on screen. Has anyone else experienced this?


#2

I’ve contacted Fuji support and they say that the sensor cleaning on the X-T1 should be very high frequency and not audible.


#3

Yes it use ultrasound to clean up the sensor like on most modern mirrorless cameras. It cleans up loose particles but not sticky ones, pollen or droplets of liquid need a mechanical cleaning (that you can do in pretty much any good camera store).

Thanks for the response Samuel. I must have mistaken it for vibrations from the lens that occurs when the camera is turned off.

Oh yes, that’s two different things! Locking the topic since it is a resolved case :slight_smile:
