There is really nothing more frustrating for photographers than a camera sensor that is full of dust and specks.Dust on the sensor happens, it’s just a fact of digital photographic life.The Super 16 (one-inch diagonal) image sensor is a global shutter CCD, and the camera's output is uncompressed 12-bit raw at a resolution of 2336×1752, recorded to SSD mags.
