Tip of the day:
In spite of what I say about usually leaving your camera on all the time and just waking it up with a light touch on the shutter button… you should consider turning it off when:
- taking off a lens
- taking out a memory card
- taking out the battery
- putting the camera in a bag
- putting it away for a long time (and if a really long time, remove and regularly recharge the battery).
Turning it off and on also forces a sensor clean on many cameras – an extra bonus.
