"V1 Sensor Dust?"


US
          

Considering moving to the V1 system, and curious about whether the issue of sensor dust bunnies is the same with this camera as with a DSLR, and if so, does the camera have the sensor cleaning feature that's built into later model DSLRs? Seems like, given the crop factor, if there is a grain of dust on this small sensor, it will look much more prominent than a similar size grain on a larger sensor, or am I off course on that? Thanks!

Yes, the sensor is exposed when changing lens so you can end up with a dirty sensor.

There is no automatic sensor cleaning feature on the Nikon 1 cameras.

Since there is no mirror and the body is shallow cleaning the sensor is much easier than it is with a DSLR. More often than not a good blower will get the job done.

Like any other camera, how often you will see dust in your photographs depends on how and what you shoot. Dust will show up most on flat even backgrounds like a blue sky and it will be most visible with small aperture settings.
