The mirror lock up option in 'Maintainence'/'Set up' for my FujiS5 Pro is grayed out so I cannot use it. My sensor is dirty and needs cleaning.

How can I take photos whenever the mirror lock up is effect


You can't take photos when mirror is in lock up mode. That is used to clean the sensor(dangerous to do if not properly equipped!). Turn off power to camera to snap mirror back up and then you can switch to manual mode to shoot long exposures. Hope this helps!!

My pictures all come out with a smudge depending on the focus is howm noticeable it comes out on the image


This is almost certainly due to dirt on your lens or mirror - possibly your sensor. If you have two interchangable lenses try them both and see if there is a difference. If no difference the mirror or sensor is probably dirty. In either case, I would suggest you have them cleaned professionally unless you are confident about working inside your camera. If there is no smudge with one lens then the other lens must be dirty. Clean both ends carefully with soft, lint free cloth.

Dark spots on my sensor


Are you talking about spots you see on the pictures? Are these spots you see in the same place on all the pictures? If you really want to see if your sensor is dirty pick a clear day with a great blue sky focus to infinity and then shift the lens to manual focus and the program to "P" take a pitch of the blue sky. Then down load this picture to the computer and open it up to 100% and look it over if there are spots then the sensor should be cleaned. Even if you take the lens off and look into the camera body you still can't see the sensor all you are looking at is the mirror inside the prism box.
To clean the sensor you need to put the camera into "clean" mode which locks the mirror up. It may be possible you just have a dirty lens or UV filter.

Nikon D2X - How do you lower the mirror if it gets locked up by mistake ? Had an err message on the upper view screen, tried the repair from this site, by tapping the front leftside of camera front and...


Normally, you can manually lock-up the mirror for the purpose of cleaning the sensor. To do this, you need to connect the camera to the optional EH-6 AC adapter. If after removing the lens and inspecting the mirror, you cannot gently nudge it back down (do not touch it...use a cotton swab) then you'll need access to the EH-6. If you don't have one, possibly a camera store near you would have one and be willing to let you plug in your camera so you could try to access the mirror lock-up function in the set-up menu.

Blotches on images especially images with a light background eg.


This is probably due to dust or other foreign matter on the CCD. Look at the Pentax *ist DL manual under "CCD cleaning" or "sensor cleaning" for instructions.

There is a "sensor cleaning" mode in the Set-up menu that will lock the mirror up so you can inspect/clean the CCD sensor.

Reset option and clean sensor option are not visible in set up menu. Canon D20 I had a two spots that kept appearing in the same area of the photo so I looked at the manual and did the clean sensor...


First of all - great camera! Check out http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos20d/ for a lot more information on the functionality. The sensor clean function only raises the mirror and exposes the sensor so that it can be professionally cleaned so that may not solve the problem of the spots. Furthermore, be extremely careful if you have the lens off when doing this as you can make the problem even worse. I would recommend you take it to a good local camera shop and ask them to clean the sensor for you. In the UK it costs around GBP30.

You should be able to set the exposure to "B" when the exposure is set for manual exposure settings. The shutter should stay open (and the mirror up) for as long as you keep the shutter button pressed.

D70 mirror lock up


I'm looking for the source of this same problem. I was able to get my d70 unstuck by:
1. Set to full manual mode.
2. In the menus set mirror lock up to yes and then press shutter release.
3. Turn camera off and then back on

Hope this helps you!
