Any strong opinions out there about image sensor cleaning? Are you setting the D800 to auto clean on power on ,off, manually? Is it a good preventative practice, or can it be wearing on the parts so should mainly be done when you see a problem ( I should probably have said if you see something) Thanks David
Going back to the D300 and D7000, I have had the sensor cleaning activated on power on and power off. I'm doing the same with my D800. I don't see it as being a wear issue. I also find that I very rarely need to clean the sensor with a blower and wet cleaning is about once per 50,000 images.
I have all my cameras set to clean (auto vibrate) at power up/off. It is a good idea to get a Delkin SensorScope or equivalent item to view your sensor to check for dust or contaminants. You will be shocked at the amount of contaminates that are not visible to the naked eye. Checking before a shoot cuts down on surprises and unwanted post work. It is a priceless tool
