    When the camera is switched off, the image sensor automatically moves to a position that puts the smallest load on it. Unlike previous models, the image sensor tilts horizontally when the camera is turned off to help dissipate heat and protect the image sensors longevity. 

    When your camera turns on, the image sensor will return to its original position.
