      I bought this brush to remove dust from negatives prior to scanning. Instead of just pushing the dust around, it actually seems to 'undo' the static charge that holds it to the surface. That's exactly what it's supposed to do. It does a good job with lenses and SLR mirrors, too.

      Works ok, not great for negatives

      I got this to remove dust from negatives before scanning. It only worked OK. I had better luck wiping them with an anti-static cloth. Seems better for lenses.

            Comments about Kinetronics Model 30 Plastic Handle StaticWisk Brush - 1.25" Wide:

            I use this little guy to get the dust off negatives when printing in the darkroom or scanning at home. I also use it to brush the glass of the scanner between scans. It's compact and comes with a nice case for throwing in my bag between home/darkroom/wherever. An old friend gave me a very old brush that worked well, but when I lost it, I bought this. I was surprised how much better the new one use! Really try to avoid your skin with it to prolong the life.

            Combine this with a microfiber, antistatic towel and you'll cut down your dust problems quite a bit without having to use wasteful, annoying, and expensive canned air.

            Comments about Kinetronics Model 30 Plastic Handle StaticWisk Brush - 1.25" Wide:

            I use this exclusively for cleaning 35mm slides before scanning. I have an Epson V700 so once the slides are locked into the carrier, I hold it up against a strong light source, hit both sides of each image with the brush, then follow up with the big Giotto Rocket or sometimes canned air if it needs it. It saves a ton of cleanup time in Lightroom and Photoshop. When using this brush, I suggest you don't press too hard. Just use the tips of the bristles, very gently, up and down, back and forth.

                                This inexpensive brush has helped eliminate dust and lint problems when scanning negatives. I simply mount the negatives in the holder, use the brush on both sides of the emulsion, and spray both sides with compressed air. Really effective.

                                            Works almost as well as Staticmaster. Just takes a little more effort, but at a much lower price. I highly recommend it.

                                                Very effective at removing dust from old slides and negatives.

                                                  I do lots of scanning, and this little brush is perfect to run over strips of film before putting them in the scanner. Does a nice job picking up specks of dust. Haven't seen any evidence of scratching of the emulsion. The design of the handle seems a little strange at first, but is actually quite effective.

                                                      This brush helped a lot dusting off old slides before scanning them. I would think it is expensive for a few grams of plastic.

                                                        The brush is wide, which is convenient to clean lenses. The hair are extremely soft, especially compared to standard cheaper brushes that I found in local stores. The case is also very useful to keep the brush clean while traveling. You can also wash the brush. The hair seem to be attached well to the handle. It works as expected and I am satisfied.
