The camo LensPen Lens Cleaner is a small, lightweight, pen-shaped cleaning tool, designed for camera lenses and other optical items. Its 0.47" (12mm) cleaning tip is slightly concave, making it especially compatible with the convex shape of lenses on digital SLR cameras, binoculars, rifle scopes, and more. A retractable brush is included for dust removal.

The cleaning element contains no liquid, and is designed to never dry out. Put the Replenishment Cap back on after using the LensPen and it will refresh the surface of the tip, assuring that only cleaning compound, not grease, will touch the lens on the next cleaning.

    I love Lenspen... I am extremely bothered by dirty glass and often enough, microfibers and other methods do not make it "xenon-spotlight" approved. Lenspens get the lens flawless. I never had any issues with them scratching lenses either, but I am also very careful to use rocket blowers and the brush tool prior to using the felt tip. I use them on more difficult to clean ND and CPL filters as well with great results. The only downfall is you have to replace them every few months, which is fine for me considering they are relatively cheap. When they start to leave residue, I replace them. They usually last me 2-3 months per pen. Well worth the money you pay.

    LensPen NLP-1 disappointed with its poor performance removing "real" fingerprints.....Quite often, something appearing trendy and cool can fool us. This is especially true when a respected company puts its name on a product. Example: Nikon. After you review our test procedures and test results, you can decide for yourself whether NLP-1 LensPen is worth the money (and the potential risk to lens surfaces), despite the overwhelming number of pundits that have praised this device.If you've read this bio from another review, please skip it, no sense in boring you twice....For the record...My background after leaving the Military, as a photo wet lab instructor, with "several" hours of photo reconnaissance in the Far East, included a 20 year paid affiliation with a respected optical use and applications laboratory of a Fortune 50 Corporation. I am "retired" in Florida with a home grown photo testing lab and a reseller of Canon Gear.Although, they've been around for a few years, I recently purchased 6 genuine Lens Pens to run some performance tests.The ads for the genuine Lens Pen were always intriguing; a compact, 4 1/2" pen sized cleaning device, fits in your pocket, good for cleaning all lenses, filters, eyepieces, and according to their website, "lasts long enough to remove 500 fingerprints". Wow! All this from an "uncapped" retractable 1" by ½" brush at one end, and a small screw capped ½" chamois pad, impregnated with carbon black, perched on a ½" flexible rubber platform at the other end.My first skepticism started with the brush. Retractable yes, but fully protected, no. Why no protective cap to cover the brush tips? The tips of the bristles, the most critical part of the brush, were left exposed inside the tube. The uncapped tips not only can pick up dirt, dust and lint in a shirt pocket or a camera bag (also mentioned by other reviewers), they do! In my opinion, this is a careless design, for an item so highly touted.Secondly, the size of the ½" in diameter chamois "pad" (2/3rds the size of a dime) to clean common (D)SLR lenses having an average filter size of between 52mm and 77mm (2-3inches), (That's 4-6 X larger than the pad itself), seemed to defy the laws of physics, despite carbon black's absorption talents. Further, we are instructed by the LensPen Web Site NOT to ever clean the pad with any cleaning solution, or even distilled water to remove the trapped soils collected from previous lens cleanings.The Lens Pen's method of "cleaning replenishment" comes from screwing the cleaning head back into the cap, which nests against a ½"x 7/16" foam "plug" very lightly impregnated with more carbon black.Just about now, I began to lose my objectivity. All I could think of was how this procedure reminded me of, after finishing dinner, having to put the "dirty" silverware back into the silverware drawer, and even worse, taking the same utensils the next day and reusing them. Nevertheless, I decided to finish the evaluation to see just how many of my fingerprints could be removed, before the pad "quit" and started to streak. The Lens Pen Web Site claims this device will last long enough to remove "500" of their "laboratory generated fingerprints".Our test procedure was designed to be practical, and one you can run yourself, as follows:I rubbed the side of my nose with my forefinger and rubbed the sebum (skin oil) on to a 52mm filter, covering an area the diameter of my forefinger, approximately 10/16".The first attempt at removing this fingerprint with the LensPen NLP-1 went FLAWLESSLY...100% AS ADVERTISED, and done in under 10 seconds!The pad was then placed fully into its cap for carbon black "replenishment", and the above procedure, repeated.. This time, however, the second fingerprint removal took almost twice as long, as some smearing was evident. However, after about twenty seconds, the lens was again sparkling clean, even under 60x magnification.For the third time, the pad was once again placed fully into its cap for carbon black "replenishment", and the above procedure, repeated.This time, however, the filter surface never got clean. The filter surface remained, streaked and smudged, even after 3 more attempts to renew the pad by screwing the cap into the foam plug with the carbon black refresher.Conclusion....None yet!To be fair, we need to rerun the test using a different new Lens Pen, which BTW is the "new design" and genuine.The test was repeated with the new Lens Pen NLP-1. Results: exactly the same outcome, as the first. After the second wiping of the skin oil fingerprint, the Lens Pen could not clean streak free the third time.Finally, we let the pens "rest" for a day, and the next day, tried each one on a totally clean 52mm filter, without any soil to be removed. I rubbed the first pen lightly on the clean filter, and as you probably guessed, the pad left a streaked residue from the retained oils from the lenses "cleaned", the day before..... same exact results with the second pen on the second clean filter.Conclusion:1. A bad batch of pens used for these tests?.. Not very likely this time, as this test was repeated a total of 6 times using 3 different vendor sources of NLP-1 LensPens.2. The more likely conclusion is the tiny Lens Pen cleaning pad simply couldn't physically absorb all the oil and as a result, redeposited the unabsorbed oil right back on to the clean filter surface. My real concern, after this observation, was what if it wasn't just oil being re-deposited on the test filter, but instead, micro grit from the last lens cleaning?3.The Lens Pen lasted through only TWO successive applications removing "real" fingerprints from skin oil. However, on a relatively clean lens surface, or one with "laboratory generated finger prints", a new LensPen does a great job with no streaks. For that matter, under most circumstances, so will our breath and a clean split microfiber lens cloth or lens tissue.Summary: For a lens surface that really needs cleaning, the classic, but less cool and safer method, in our view, still prevails...Begin by blowing, and or BRUSHING FIRST with a clean, natural hair lens brush (100% goat hair), followed by a "boringly effective" disposable lens wipe, made by Zeiss or Nikon, or a clean brand name micro fiber cloth and a lens cleaner, made by Zeiss, Nikon, ROR or Kodak. It may not be trendy, but will always do the job thoroughly and safely. And, if you are one of those that faithfully cleans their micro fiber cloth after each use, you need never worry about redepositing residues from lenses cleaned previously with that same cloth, a claim that the newest NLP-1 model LensPen cannot match, as evidenced in the tests detailed above....SteveCopyright © Canon_Treasures 2013 all rights reserved

                            These lens pens do seem to work, but so does a piece of microfiber. For regular smudges, fingerprints, etc. I find that a microfiber cloth works just fine. For dust and such, I appreciate the brush function of the lens pen as it allows me to remove particles without rubbing them around.

                                        This gadget is pretty good, but...carefully angling the optics to the low-angle light reveals that the glass isn't pristine. At least for me.

                                          Always in Photo- pack / clean my lenses before taking photos of Hummers at my feeders or going Photo trip & family visits. Out in the trees if lenses need it.

                                          Still have not found what I am looking for, a good lens cleaner.

                                          brush is OK

                                              This device is comes in handy for a quick cleaning of one's lens. The brush is very useful. But the cleaner seems dry up in about a year. The convenience and cost out weighs this small flaw

                                                      May not be the best on the market but I like it! Does a great job cleaning & last a long time. I knocked 1 star off for not having a cap over the brush side. It allows dust & just to get into the brush.
