HI There

I hope someone can help me.

I am thinking of getting a Q10 as the price is so good at the moment and wondered how often the sensors need cleaning and where do people get it done?

As there is no mirror it must pick up quite a bit of dust and as it is such a small sensor it must be pretty prominent.

Any advice?

Thanks

Paul

If any dust was picked up then it would certainly be large compared to the size of the sensor. The saving grace is that the sensor is easily reached and a quick blow with a rocket blower should be all it needs.

I have been using the original Q for some time now and only once got a dust speck. The rocket blower removed it easily.

Just avoid changing lenses in dusty environments, always change them with the camera throat pointed downwards, always have the camera switched off.
Best regards, John
