as kyou are prolly aware i now have upgraded from a d40 to d90... i notice there are various built-insettings....
for those with this camera or another with does it work well? what setting do you use?
I've set mine to clean on start up and shutdown. I figure it can't hurt to clean as much as possible. I haven't noticed any dust in my camera after 2 years, but I tend not to shoot stuff that is likely to show it up. I am meaning to get it checked out on the next bright blue day.
ditto, works too (but not a really sticky or big bunnies)

I have it on at startup (Pentax have a similar cleaning system). I also use it as a first resort (manual mode) when there is a bunny. I then use a blower if needed.
Funny, I've had my D90 (& D300) for some time now.. and I've rarely used this... never had the need, however may just go back and take another look
Can I pose a Q to Ving & others here ...
To get the camera to do its sensor / dust self check operation ... does your camera give the same results with lens cap 'on' as when shooting a white screen??
Of all the stuff in a busy photographers kitbag, the ability to see photographically is the most important
google me at Travelling School of Photography
Thought it was a gimmick when I got the D300 but it definitely works. I have mine set to clean at shutdown only.
I'm not sure whether this really should become a new thread ...
but the Q remains:-
[quote] To get the camera to do its sensor / dust self check operation ... does your camera give the same results with lens cap 'on' as when shooting a white screen?? [quote]
I guess what I'm querying is that some users talk about shooting a white wall/card etc to determine dust spots, other cameras talk about ain 'internal' self-check of the sensor to do the same thing ... and I'm wondering about the 2 approaches
This help at all??
Yes, it is
