Dust Deletion Feature

1. Self Cleaning Sensor Unit 2. Dust Delete Data appended to the captured image 3. Manual cleaning of sensor

(1) Automatic Sensor Cleaning

  1. Removes dust adhering to the low-pass filter.
  2. Self-cleaning executed automatically (taking 2 sec.) when power is turned on or off. Manual execution also possible (taking 6 sec.).
  3. Low-pass filter has a fluorine coating.

(2) Dust Delete Data appended to the captured image

  1. The coordinates of the dust adhering to the low-pass filter are detected by a test shot and appended to subsequent images.
  2. The dust coordinate data appended to the image is used by the provided software to automatically erase the dust spots.

(3) Manual cleaning of sensor

Recording Functions

Images record directly to the CF card. With the WFT-E5A attached, image recording to the CF card and to the USB external media connected to the WFT-E5A will be possible as follows:

(1) Standard

  1. No automatic switching of recording media.

(2) Automatic switching of recording media

  1. When the current recording media becomes full, it switches to another recording media automatically and continues recording.

(3) Separate recording

  1. Each recording media can be set to record a specific image-recording quality for each shot.

(4) Recording of identical images

  1. Images can also be recorded at the same size to both recording media. (RAW+JPEG, M RAW+JPEG or S RAW+JPEG is possible).

(5) Backup to external recording media

  1. Selected images, all images, and quick backup are possible.

Backup Recording
