How to clean the X-T4 sensor, or indeed any camera sensor, is a question we eventually have to ask ourselves.
Even if you swap lenses in what looks like the most dust-free environment, one day it’s going to happen: you’ll see a dust spot in your images. Of course, it can be easily fixed in Lightroom/Photoshop/etc but it’s often the kind of problem you only really noticed AFTER you post a photo online. So better keeping the sensor clean at all times.
To clean a camera sensor is not the daunting task you may think. You need to be careful, of course, but it can be achieved at home or on the field. Just do it in the most dustless environment you can find yourself in when you do it. But it’s easy and inexpensive.
And in this video I tell you how to do this correctly.
But why a specific video on how to clean the X-T4 sensor? Well, the Fujifilm X-T4 is different, as it has its own unique proprietary IBIS (in body image stabilisation) that is based on magnets. So you need to be extra careful here.
I did ask Fujifilm how to clean the X-T4 sensor and here I tell you what they replied. Adding also the 3+1 methods to clean any other camera sensor.
Hope it helps!
