I used this product with the green swabs on a full frame sensor. My sensor not only had dust and lint, but also numerous faint spots that required extensive cloning and healing in Photoshop or Lightroom. The VDust Plus solution removed all the dust and smears, though it required several applications. This product can be sent by mail, whereas most other cleaning solutions cannot. I give it 4 stars, rather than 5, only because it took many attempts to get the sensor entirely clean, but it did the job.

You can just swab your censor, you have to have product on it to absorb particles on the censor. Its like dusting with pledge rather than a dry rag. Very effective - don't over do it -it can damage the censor if you don't allow it to dry properly

          Comments about VisibleDust VDust Plus Formula Solution:

          I use this product with VisibleDust Ultra MXD swabs to clean the sensors of my Nikon D600 and D90 DSLR cameras. Together VDust Plus and VDust swabs make cleaning your DSLR sensor quick and easy work. Simply apply a couple of drops of the cleaning solution to the swab, wait a couple of seconds for the solution to soak in and brush slowly across the sensor. (Actually, the AA filter in most camera bodies.) VDust Plus dries quickly without leaving a residue. The whole process takes a couple of minutes and leaves your camera ready for the next shoot.

          The only reason I am giving this review 3 stars is because of the price. What is this made out of pixie dust and baby tears? [$] seems excessive. It works well but I am put off by the price.

            Seems to be a comon issue with Nikons that oil from the shutter makes it's way to the sensor, I used the cleaning swabs and edge cleaning swabs. Watched thier video on youtube. In 10 minutes I was done and my image was back to crystal clear again. No repair facility, no hassels! Do Not Fear the sensor it has a protective filter over it; and that is where the dust and oil collects! Note my camera has a mirror up for cleaning fuction! I am even going to demenstrate it's use in class!

            Comments about VisibleDust VDust Plus Formula Solution:

            I had a couple major spots on my sensor showing up on my new D7100 after only a few month's use. With much trepidation I purchased this cleaning fluid, some VDust Swabs for 1.3x Sensor - Orange Series (12-Pack), the VDust Mini Quasar 7x Sensor Loupe, and a vDust Hurricane Blower. I didn't want to have to deal with sending the camera in (expense and time) so I figured I better take the plunge and learn to clean it.

            I blew away any loose dust, added three drops and swiped one way then the other on the sensor while looking through the loupe. Presto! Spots and a piece of something on the sensor. Arrgh! I didn't panic, loaded up a second swab with three drops, swabbed one more time in one direction only. Once the sensor dried it was spotless and the problem spots were gone.

            The swabs and solution did their job. Just don't panic if it doesn't get it all with the first swab. Also, I wouldn't have wanted to try to do it without the loupe and light it provided.

                    After using Eclipse for years, I tried VDust. It left streakes on sensor and would not remove debris. I tried VDust since B & H does not ship Eclipse. I would definitely avoid this product.

                          In trying to remove lubricant from my D800 sensor, I tried all the visible dust products.

                          I tried the green visibe dust swabs and smear away first and just had one big smear across the sensor. After 9 sensor swabs with smear away, I then used my remaining 3 green swabs with sensor clean solution and got nowhere.

                          In desperation I then tried the orange visible dust sensor swabs with the VDust formula which is supposed to help with lubricant though not as well as the smear away, but I was desperate and that also took me nowhere.

                          I then purchased a sensorswipe, quickstips and eclipse solution and only after a few passes got a clean sensor and was ready to go back to taking pictures.

                              I just used this solution with the Sensor Swabs to clean my Nikon D80. I've had the camera for about 5 years and never cleaned the sensor so there were several dust spots I couldn't remove just by blowing air on the sensor. I put it off for a while and did lots of research for fear of damaging the camera but finally got up the nerve and didn't damage the camera and the dust spots are gone!

                              I used three drops on one side of the swab and brushed twice over the sensor (left to right, flip the swab then right to left) and that's all it took. (Note to people doing this for the first time: if you swipe more than once make sure you're still using the side that contains the solution!)

                                              Used with green swabs to clean Sony NEX-5N sensor.Had some dust and residue left after using LensPen SensorKlear (my fault, SensorKlear is a good product). VDust worked great, and 2 swabs were enough to get it cleaned.The only negative is that the bottle arrived about 2/3 full, possibly leaked on a way.

                                                  I reviewed the recomended orange swabs earlier so will save the long right up. In short, never used cleaning solution to rid dust and dirty sensor, only air. Air wasn't cutting it. I was nervous to use but didn't have any option while in South America. Went for it with DHAP Orange swabs and in ONE pass my sensor went from post processing nightmare to ZERO spots. Amazing and so happy that my sensor as good as new!

                                                      Very expensive and not any more effective for cleaning sensors than the much cheaper Eclipse solution.

                                                      The Vdust Plus is not effective at all in removing the residue from the Visible Dust Smear Away product which should be avoided as much as possible for this reason.

                                                      I do prefer the Visible Dust swabs, which are also incredibly expensive but more effective than other swabs I have tried.

                                                        Blowers do not always effectively remove dust which collects on the sensor of my Nikon D-700.

                                                        After researching various products, I purchased the VDust Plus Formula sensor cleaner and the associated swabs and sensor brush from B&H.

                                                        Admittedly, I was concerned that I might damage the sensor in attempting to clean it. I very carefully followed the instructions which were provided and, within a few minutes, completed the job. The dust was removed from the sensor and no longer appeared on my photos. I was extremely delighted with the results.
