Designed for cleaning CCD, CMOS, and other delicate optical and imaging surfaces, this 12-pack of Type 1 Sensor Swabs from Photographic Solutions are specifically designed for image sensors measuring 20mm high, such as APS-H sensors. Each of the swabs are individually packaged to ensure purity and feature a long handle for easier access to difficult-to-reach areas. The swabs are designed for one-time use in conjunction with the Eclipse Optic Cleaning Fluid to rid the image sensor of dust or other particles that affect image quality.

Type 1-sized swabs measure 20mm wide and are well-suited for cameras featuring APS-H image sensors, such as the Canon EOS-1D, 1D Mark II, 1D Mark III, and 1D Mark IV, among others.

    Cleaning my sensor was fast and simple with minimal learning curve. Takes a few tries to get the hang of it but a clean sensor was the outcome without having to send in to manufacturer and wait to get camera back. Love everything about this product except the price but when compared to the cost of sending in to the manufacturer it's a bargain.

    I called in to speak directly to a sales person because i was getting confused on which product to use on a Nikon D610 (FX) sesnsor. This was sent. These are way too small and not cheap. I went ahead and used several of these with the Visible Dust Smear Away and the results were very bad - but I believe because of the fluid, not the wipe. B&H, to their credit, gave me an RMA and offered full refund or store credit.

              I find that the Sensor Swab products work pretty well. Gets rid of most of the crud on my sensor but it usually takes 2 - 3 swabs. This size - for APS-C cameras - seems to be a little tighter fit than the full-frame size, but it works well.

                    I use these to clean my sensors and mirrors on a D700 and D300, was scared at first but with some help from a local camera shop I have grown to trust these swabs and will continue to use them.

                      I reused the item several times before I toss them. It worked great. The only down side is that at times it pushes the dust to the end of the sensor screen. It also frays at the ends if you are not careful. Otherwise it is perfect to use to clean your sensor.
