VisibleDust Swabs for 1.5-1.6x Sensor - Green Series (12-Pack)

Price: $43.65
Product Highlights
  • For Cleaning DSLR Image Sensors

These VisibleDust DSLR Swabs - Green Series are specially tailored for cleaning the delicate sensor in DSLR Cameras with a 1.5-1.6x sensor size range (16mm).

The ultra thin MXD-100 multi fiber fabric of the Green Series swabs has a patented folding design to create a softer edge (compared to a hot sealing process), and is designed to be compatible with a wide range of VisibleDust solutions including VDust Formula, Sensor Clean, and Smear Away. Because the MXD-100 fabric of the green series swabs is compatible with Sensor Clean, you can take advantage of the anti-fog and dust repellent properties of this special cleaning solution.

The patented mini-channel paddle, with contour, provides an even saturation of the paddles surface while preventing pooling and vertical flow at the edge. This reduces streaks associated with traditional flat surface paddles. The mini-channels also provide an extra reservoir to absorb any excessive liquid thereby prolonging the moisture life of the swab during the cleaning process.

Perfectly sized for DSLR Cameras with a 1.5-1.6x sensor size (16mm).
Ultra thin MXD-100 multi fiber fabric is compatible with most Visible Dust cleaning solutions.
Patented mini-channel paddle provides even saturation while preventing pooling of cleaning solution.

    I recently used the VisibleDust System. (Both the cleaning solution and the swabs)
    I have to admit I was a little nervous putting a swab with wet liquid on my sensor, but it was not that bad. When the product arrived, I read the directions twice and went about cleaning the sensor.

    The system worked well. I was able to remove the built up dust that I have not been able to remove with other products.

    The first time it took me a while (7 swabs) to get the hang of cleaning the sensor on my Nikon D7000. The second time it went much better. The trick is to get just enough solution on the swab. Follow the directions.

    Gave it a 3 star rating because it's very expensive. If I can do 2 or 3 more cleanings using only 2 or 3 swabs each, it will finally be less expensive than sending it to Nikon.

          I would consider these the very best sensor swabs, if not for the price. I prefer them above all the competition, but I end up using them as the final swab on an extra dirty sensor to keep the cost down.

              I have a Nikon D5100 and a D7100. I shoot outdoors, a lot, and frequently change lenses. I'm always getting dust and junk on the sensor. These make sensor cleaning a breeze. Love them.

                    I was afraid to tackle cleaning my sensor myself, but when the last local camera store in my area shut down, I decided it was time to learn. After contacting B&H for recommended equipment, I ordered the green swabs, and went to work. It was really pretty easy, and the sensors on both of my Somy Alpha 700s are the cleanest they've been in sometime... Glad I tried it... And even though the swabs seemed fairly expensive, they really represent considerable savings over sending my cameras away for cleaning.

                        After several easy sensor cleaning with a Rocket blower, had to use LensPen SensorKlear. It did help, but eventually left some residue.
                        Used Visible Dust swabs with VDust plus liquid this time, and 2 swabs were enough to get clean sensor. It is important to follow instructions: use 1 or 2 drops of liquid, wait few seconds, use each side of a swab only once.

                        Added 3 drops of cleaning fluid to swab and pulled swab across sensor, flipped swab and did pulled swab across sensor from opposite end. I had a couple of spots on the sensor (not dust but a stain) which needed editing on every photo. Using the swabs and cleaning fluid removed the stains from the sensor surface. Not sure why I waited so long to try these swabs (and cleaning fluid).

                              Work well, but way too expensive - also, why would you need to use a blower on the swab before putting liquid cleaner on it - this is what the manufacturer recommends " .. as fibres might have come loose during transportation ..." sure the material used should have the potential for loose fibres at this price?

                                Dry method had always works for me in the past, but not this time. So I tried the web method using these swabs and they worked great. Took three times but finally got the job done.

                                The swabs can be easily used in any space.
                                Results are great - following instructions and using the right cleaning liquid.
                                However - sometimes many paths are needed, which require many swabs - an expensive sum.

                                I used this with the V Dust Plus liquid. I cleaned all the spots off the sensor.

                                    The first time it took me a while (7 swabs) to get the hang of cleaning the sensor on my Nikon D7000. The second time it went much better. The trick is to get just enough solution on the swab. Follow the directions.

                                    Gave it a 3 star rating because it's very expensive. If I can do 2 or 3 more cleanings using only 2 or 3 swabs each, it will finally be less expensive than sending it to Nikon.

                                      I find it silly to send your camera bodies in to get cleaned by the manufacturer.

                                      I keep a package of sensor swabs in the camera bag and some cleaning solution and this way if I get any spots while out shooting, I can save editing time and keep the camera clean on the spot

                                          Use 2 drops of sensor clean to went the fabric at the end of the swab and make a nice smooth stroke the long length of the sensor. One pass usually removes whatever is sticking to the sensor.
