I have a Fuji X-a1 that has an issue.
whenever it starts it gives an error "sensor cleaning" and then restarts. 
sometimes it does this 3-4 times in raw. Any ideas if this can be rectified?

I don't know what Fuji cameras do when they do "sensor cleaning" because as far as I am.aware they have no active cleaning process.

I can only suggest resetting the camera using an option in the menus. Alternatively, try installing new firmware by downloading the latest firmware update from the Fuji website, put it on an SD card, put the card in the camera, turn the camera on and follow the instructions.

You can set (most) of the Fuji cameras to clean sensor when switched on, or off, or both. Try changing this to OFF only.

Failing that - do a factory reset.

I suspect they use a variant of the ultrasonic cleaning that Olympus developed years ago that is what most other manufacturers with fixed sensors seem to be doing.

Yeah I had assumed something like passing a charge through the sensor. As it's nothing physical, I wasn't sure what could have "broken" that would make this process error, assuming the sensor is still functional.

      So I'm thinking of buying my very first lens but unsure of what to buy. I like to take photos of landscapes, portraits and some macro. I've been looking at the 16mm f1.4 as someone recommended it, but also have been looking at 60mm f2.4, 10-24mm f4, 23mm f1.4 and 35mm f2. I like the idea of the maximum aperture, f1.4 etc. It would be great to get a lens that can do both landscapes and portraits. Any recommendations would be awesome thanks x
