    Do NOT Change Your Lens Using this Hack

    I had never heard of this hack to change lenses on the Z6 or Z7. The way the camera works now the sensor is exposed. The best way to change the lens is to keep the body facing down and try not to do it in a dust storm. PetaPixel posted this article along with the offending hack.

    To be fair they do state DO NOT do the hack, and in fact the you tube video also says that.

    Basically forcing an error to keep the shutter closed helps stop dust, but the error register keeps count and you’ll end up having your camera locked up, requiring a service. Never a good idea.

    Thanks for alerting us!

    How does doing something like that even REMOTELY strike someone as a good idea?

    That was my first thought... How do you even figure out that the the planets will align like that... My second thought was a lot of beer had to be involved.
