About the Dust Delete Data

After the Dust Delete Data is obtained, it is appended to all the JPEG and RAW images captured thereafter. Before an important shoot, you should update the Dust Delete Data by obtaining it again.

For erasing dust spots automatically with the bundled software, see the Software Instruction Manual in the CD-ROM.

The Dust Delete Data appended to the image is so small that it hardly affects the image file size.

Be sure to use a solid-white object such as a white piece of paper. If the paper has any pattern or design, it may be recognized as dust data and affect the accuracy of the dust deletion with the software.
