    I have recently brought a Nikon D100 the sensor needed cleaning
    beacause of dust. I was wondering does it reduce the amount of
    dust that collects over time if the camera is kept with the sensor
    facing downwards.
    Thanks Chris.

  3. That's what I've heard/read -- seems reasonable enough to me.

    You should always try and keep the body/lens opening pointed at the ground
    when changing lenses as well as making sure the power is off when changing

    Dust can stay suspended in the air for long periods of time, mostly by air
    currents too small to measure. Dust is attracted to an electrostatic
    charge, even a small residual charge, which is present on all sensors.
    Figure it out.

  7. You will still get dust on the sensor, but by pointing down and being fast
    with lense change you won't get as much as fast.

    Get a bulb blower and clean it out every so often.
