Q3 body position when not in use.....

Yes, most of you are asking what the hell AussieQ is on about.....

I was watching a video on youtube where the presenter was reviewing the Q3. He made an interesting note that when he is not using his Q3, he keeps it in a lens down position ( resting on its hood face ) as opposed to sitting on its bottom and his reasoning is that if the camera is left sitting on its base say on your desk or in bag, the leaf shutter has a higher chance of damage or failure. 

Is there any truth in this?

Pure bullcrap!!!

Leaf shutters have been around since 1890 (developed by Voightlander)…store them down, up or sideways it makes no difference.

He’s likely ‘surmising’ that storage had an effect on the flow of lubricants.   Liquid lubes haven’t been used in shutters for years

Yes! If the presenter was a Leica Q technician ... but he's not.

Hilarious.

Don’t believe everything you see on YouTube. Most presenters don’t know WTH they are talking about. Most particularly if they start a sentence with “I believe”, you know whatever follows is total speculation and utter BS. 

If that was a serious question, it’s time to sit down and take a long, hard look at yourself 🥸
