Helping to a clean a variety of stains from your image sensor, this 8 ml bottle of VDust Plus Formula from Visible Dust is a concentrated liquid solution for cleaning away water and most oil stains. It is specifically designed to prevent streaking and to provide a moderate static barrier for your sensor to maintain a clean appearance after cleaning.

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.

Expensive

By IrvineUser

Comments about VisibleDust VDust Plus Formula Sensor Cleaning Solution (8 ml):

The company has 3 different kinds of cleaning solutions for different kinds if dirt. However, not sure yet, how to know which to use for my specific situation, got this because this seemed to be the best overall solution. Cleaned all but one of the spots. Very expensive, so are the swabs. I would give it a higher rating if not for the cost.

      Comments about VisibleDust VDust Plus Formula Sensor Cleaning Solution (8 ml):

      Visible Dust makes excellent products, but as with any process involving dexterity, you must practice some at first. My first attempt was on a camera I had owned for 5 years and never cleaned. I began by using the VisibleDust Vswab Ultra MXD-100 and VisibleDust Sensor Clean Solution (their standard cleaning solution).
      I used all 12 swabs I had. Sometimes it looked better, sometimes worse, but never good.
      I bought 12 more swabs and the other two cleaners in the product line: VDust Plus and Smear Away.
      I used Smear away one time and the sensor looked better but not good. After the second application with Smear Away, the sensor looked better still.
      It seemed to me that 2 applications of Smear Away had finally removed whatever gunk had been causing the problem of crud being moved around the sensor but not actually eliminated, so I moved on to using the VDust Plus.
      One application with VDust Plus and everything looked very good except for one tiny blob near the lower-left corner and I deemed the job "Close enough for jazz." I did not want to risk messing up a near-perfect result for one tiny blob in that location (which should be fixable in post for nearly all images.)

      I also have the VisibleDust Quasar Sensor Loupe. It is a nice instrument, but did not actually do much to help me with cleaning the sensor. Certainly it gives you a good visual of the insides, and it might help you identify the nature of the substance on the sensor, but you can see what you need to see only with an exposure. I used a trick I found online: open a blank Word file and zoom in to about 400% This gives you a very nice, even background to shoot, and any dust will show readily. Don't forget to stop way down.

                Comments about VisibleDust VDust Plus Formula Sensor Cleaning Solution (8 ml):

                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.

                  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 Sensor Cleaning Solution (8 ml):

                  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.

                                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!)

                                            I used this solution with sesnor swabs and between the two, it gets the job done. 4 drops/side and 2 swipes cleaned the sensor nicely.

                                                  I haven't used the product yet; HOWEVER, it is ridiculously expensive. I give it a neutral rating because I have not used it yet.

                                                    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.

                                                      what else can be said. It's sensor cleaner and it works
