First off, I have to agree with Jim on this. If the camera is "correcting" anything, it is automatically altering and editing the photo. As he said, this could completely eliminate what it is we're trying to catch.. Already, this sensor sounds like a bad idea.

Agreed! Just HOW MUCH doesn't it remove? No one really knows because no one knows what the parameters really are.... but, the best way to determine what the camera can do is to take pics with several different cameras at the same time and compare the results....
That wont work. Period. You can set up as many cameras as you want, and take the same picture at the same time - except the additional cameras will not be in the exact same location.. This will result in different "orbs" or other things captured, because the lights from the flashes will be hitting the objects at different angles. Compare away, but that wont prove a thing in that respect.
And how much will it not remove? Anything in front of the camera and/or wet that hits the sensor. That little sensor can vibrate to its hearts content - that's not going to knock "dust orbs" out of the air in front of the camera. And if moisture is the issue, vibrating will just streak the beaded up moisture falling on the sensor.
So far, the only perk I see to that idea is that it helps keep the sensor clean from internal dust, but I fail to see how that will cut down on natural, free floating, contaminants - also known as "dust orbs."
