The VisibleDust UltraMXD-Vswab is an innovative sensor cleaning swab with a unique "V" shape design that has several advantages over the more common square format swabs. The narrower edge of the V shaped swab minimizes the contact between the swab and the chamber wall reducing the chances of dust or lint from the camera body from falling on the sensor while cleaning.

Plus the "V" shape allows for better maneuverability and easy swabbing while inside the chamber, and allows the user to apply more equal pressure to the edge of the swab pad for a more homogeneous swabbing motion and less streaking along the edges.

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. The 1.0x size is specially designed to provide a single swipe cleaning action for "full frame" image sensors.

Note: Compatible with VDust Plus, Sensor Clean & Smear Away cleaning Fluids

    I purchased these as part of a group of sensor cleaning supplies and was happy with how they worked. I ended up needing to use 6 swabs to get my sensor totally clean. It was really dirty after not being cleaned for 2 years of very regular use. I wish I would have made this purchase earlier. I recommend a loop, bulb air pump, sensor brushes, and sensor optical cleaning solution in addition to these.

    Absolutely not happy about this product. Within last 6 months 3 times cleaned my Canon 5D Mark II sensor and 3 times didn't succeed to remove all the dust. Every time I used two swabs making one swap with each with cleaning solution liquid. Last time I included in cleaning process additionally 2 corner swabs. Bad results! Round shape pieces of strings are left on the sensor every time. After close look on the swabs I discovered that pieces of material falls out from the corner of swabs. This rubbish pollutes the sensor! No matter how many swabs you use and how delicate you clean your sensor, pieces of swab material fall out from the swab and make whole process useless!
    In a past I used another swabs from different manufacture and never had such troubles… I think I better return to the previous type of swabs…

      I have the complete Visible Dust cleaning kit and most of the time the Zeon Blower and Arctic Butterfly will remove 90% of the dust. On occasion however, a wet solution is needed and these are the solution.

      I was a little afraid to clean my own sensor, but it's easy. Take the same care you use to clean a lens. This product is easy to use and custom sized.

      I use my Sony mirrorless camera in an underwater housing. Somehow saltwater splashed onto three sensor. These tiny swabs along with some sensor cleaning solutions completely removed the dried on residue without harming the sensor. I thought I'd ruined the sensor. Bravo

            I paid $ for a camera tech to clean the sensor on my Nikon D610 the first time. I shoot outdoors and swap lens a lot, and the sensor quickly dusted up again. I used the Rocket Blower and the built in sensor clean function, but it still looked terrible with dust fragments all over the sensor. I tried a fine brush, but that just moved the particles around.I bought the the UltraMXD-Vswab, the VisibleDust VDust Plus drops and The Carson SM-44 5x SensorMag from B&H and with just one application the sensor was completely clear of dust.This product should come with the camera. 'nuff said.

              I find the Visible Dust Green swabs the one and only safer methods to clean the modern sensitive camera sensors. It works well and cleans the sensor effectively provided one uses the VisibleDust Blower and sensor loupe for a safer and effective cleaning.

              First time I've ever had to clean the sensor on my D800. Needless to say was very apprehensive about the whole process. Checked out probably 50 YouTube videos. Visible dust swabs looked to be the most direct solution. After first attempt, was convinced I'd made the right choice. The product (along with the sensor clean solution) worked flawlessly!

                            Works exactly as advertised. Have the D600 oil on both bodies. The brushes and drops got it perfect. We did the cleaning in Death Valley. It took a bit of a learning curve to understand just how fast the fluid evaporates. Once we figured that out it was a no brainer.

                            Nikon said it would take 7 10 days to "review" the cameras. They stink. Cameras are great.

                                Simply put, a great product and essential gear for full-frame DSLR owners. These swabs are designed to be used to clean full-frame DSLR sensors. Each swab is individually packaged to ensure it is clean and dust free when you use it. Simply apply a couple of drops of the sensor cleaning solution of your choice (I use Visible Dust Plus), wait a couple of seconds for the solution to soak in, then slowly and carefully brush the swab across the sensor (actually, the AA filter in most cases) of your DSLR. I make two swipes; one left-to-right and a second in the opposite direction. The solution dries without leaving a residue. I use this product with a Nikon D600 and the results of two cleanings have been just what you'd expect: a clean, dust-free sensor ready or the next shoot.

                                  I was a bit reluctant to try and wet clean the sensor on my D3s, but after a trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula where I shot fall colors in a windstorm, no matter what I did I could not get the spots off the sensor. After a bit of research I ordered Vswab and fluid from VisibleDust. Directions are a bit weak, but there are plenty of internet videos to show you how. It took two swabs to get the sensor clean, but it looks like new. I bought both the Smear Away and VDust Plus solutions. I only needed the Vdust Plus as the stuff on the sensor came off without the stronger solution. The reason I did not give it 5 stars is the price. It is expensive for the amount you get, but it did work and work well.

                                      Cheaper than a professional cleaning and gets the job done, but confusing as to how come these are so expensive. Are they cut from angel wings?

                                          This swab model must be used with "Smear Away" solution and the Visible Dust brand is by far the best of all. I use it to wipe out dry oil stains from CMOS. The 1.0x size is for full frame CMOS.

                                            This is what a pro needs to keep the sensor clean. it's just perfect, i'd use it together with the VDust Plus Formula Solution (blue cap) on my D800 and it takes one swab to have it completly clean. it also removes the oil spots.

                                            Highly recomended.

                                              I've used a half-dozen or more 'swab' products from 'other' companies. The Visible Dust products are A+. They are a bit pricier than many, but they really do the job. Let's face it, you've spent {$2,000 - $8,000} on a DSLR body and now the sensor needs cleaning. Your images are worth it and your time (to clean up the mess in post-production) is too valuable. Do it right!

                                                  I have always had sensor dust with my Canon 5D. These cleaning swabs work great and save me [$] every time I use them to clean my sensor.

                                                  I would suggest removing all dust, grease and water spots with a blower and corner swab first before using the Vswab. Overall, the system is good for occaional maintenance but not sure if one could justify the cost over the effectivness of having the sensor professionally cleaned.
