      With this instrument I am absolutely confident that if anything is on the sensor, I will spot it. When you try it, you will see how clearly it works.
      How you clean the sensor of any fine particles is a subject for debate, but this scope will allow you to see if there is something on it.

      This scope can be used as a lighted magnifier for checking your lens surfaces or even locating a splinter in your finger if need be. Whenever you need a combination of a magnifier and a flashlight, this scope works very well. It is easy to use and easy to see through.

      It also comes with a quality pouch.

      That's about all this is. Keeping the light on means keeping the button pressed. Would be better with press-on, press-off switch. I found keeping the button pressed difficult (must be getting arthritis). Have to admit I saw this complaint in another review but thought it couldn't be that bad. Seeing into the corners of a full-size sensors requires looking in at a low angle so expect lots of distortion. On some cameras, I had to lift of the camera to focus on the sensor. It's a nifty ideal. It does work as advertised though so I can't complain about that. Surprising how much junk is left on a "clean" sensor and visible with this. For the price, I almost think I'd rig up a PVC pipe, magnifying glass, and some LEDs (or just use a magnifying glass and flashlight). Thinking about it, I could have used my swing-arm, circular light with the magnifying glass in the center and been hands free. Kind of hard to put that in a camera case though.

          You can use this little gizmo to see all the dust bunnies you have been working so hard deleting in PS. Once you're done cleaning you sensor, you can marvel at the great job you did and the money you saved by cleaning the sensor yourself.

            As instructed, I put my camera into clean sensor mode, and the sensor scope fit perfectly. With illumination on, I could see the dust on the sensor. It was also very easy to recheck after cleaning the sensor.

            As almost every other reviewer has said, the batteries were DOA - had to replace them right away. Not a problem since I keep a supply of batteries on hand. Scope is bright enough to see any dust on sensor. Was a little out of focus on my D200 though - no way to accurately focus since it is a fixed length.

                      I asked B&H customer service if it would work for my Sony NEX 7 and they highly recommended it. I tried it and am very happy I did. It showed everything on my sensor so I could clean it easily myself. I need to be able to clean my sensor myself since we travel often. The service rep also suggested the Visible Dust 1.6x Sensor Brush cleaning kit to resolve my dust issues. It worked perfectly.

                                      hi, The bright, contrasty lights in the Sensor Scope definitely help identify larger particles, but on the Nikon D800, the magnifying lens is front focused, so the sensor and whats on it appear out of focus, and if there are smaller particles, i can't see them with the Sensor Scope.

                                      There should be a way to adjust the focusing distance. The scope is useful, but the ability to adjust the focusing distance would make this a much improved product.

                                      Also, if the unit used the more common AAA or AA batteries, instead of the button cells, i'd prefer that.

                                          The sensor scope works great. The *** are added as I had read comments that the included batteries don't work. Sure enough when I turned the scope on, the lights lit up but they were very dim. A new set of batteries did the trick.

                                            I recently went on a trip to Utah and took several HDR photos. When I went to render the photos, I realized to my horror that there were spots all over the photos. At the time I could not find a photo shop to get a sensor cleaning kit. When I got home I ordered the Sensor Scope and was amazed at how well it worked. Now I will be able to keep an eye on keeping my sensor clean.

                                                I am constantly shooting in dirty, windy conditions. My sensors always seemed to need cleaning. Tired of driving in to town, I decided to try my hand a sensor cleaning. A very helpful chap at B&H suggested the Delkin Sensor Scope and some wet swabs. I used up about five swabs, but my sensor was spotless. Th Delkin Sensor Scope does a wonderful job of showing the dust and other cling-ons.

                                                I will never be without again.

                                                  If you're cleaning your sensor without a scope you're guessing. The Delkin Sensor Scope clearly identifies dust and spots on the camera sensor and verifies the effectiveness of your cleaning effort. I wouldn't clean my sensor without one.

                                                  Was looking for a good way to save time when cleaning my 50D sensor. This was the perfect solution. The star rating is so low because the product was shipped to me with dead batteries. After making a seperarate trip to buy new batteries for $7.99, this scope worked as described. However, the glass also had to be cleaned before I used it the first time too. The construction is pretty flimsy---I can imagine dropping it once and that would be it. The glass seems to be held in place with glue which is visible on the edges where the plastic lens meets the plastic body.

                                                    I did not know about a product like this until a recent camera club meeting. With this product, one can easily see where spots may be coming from on their pictures. Sensors are easy to clean and usually a good blowing and following good procedures with handling lens will minimize your problems. I would purchase and recommend this product to any serious camera user.
