    [...] The sensor swabs were wrapped in a beautiful bubble wrap which was secured neatly with one strip of clear adhesive material. When I removed the bubble wrap, I was overcome with emotion. I had anticipated this moment for 3 agonizing days. It was now time to swab my sensor. There I sat, alone in solitude, ready to swab my sensor. I carefully opened the packaging and removed the first of 3 sensor swabs. My hands began to tremble as I held my swab, admiring it for its perfect size and shape. As I grasped my swab, my body became tense and it seemed like everything else in the world just disappeared. I was filled with satisfying pleasure as I began to slowly and gently pass my swab across the delicate sensor. I began to swab faster and faster as my heartbeat raced. My swab was now fully extended inside the the body of my Canon 20D. Finally, my hand began to spasm just as my sensor shined gleamed with perfectly un-refracted beams of beautiful light. I gently removed my swabs from the camera with total satisfaction.

    I was able to clean my Digital Rebel with only two swabs but with how low the sensor was on my 40D it took 3 and it was not completely clean, I had to use another brush to clean out hair pieces that get stuck in the chamber above the sensor. I think I need to push harder but it seamed like the swabs were a little too big for the 40D. I think for cleaning you need a static brush a magnifying glass, that you do not need to hold, and this product for smudges on your sensor.

        I used the Sensor Swabs to clean my Sony NEX 5N sensor. The cleaning removed some significant dust from the sensor and the subsequent images were improved.

            This is what I expected it to be and worked fine on my embarrassingly filthy sensor. I typically like to buy things in bulk to get the best price per item, but in this case a 4 pack is plenty since sensor cleaning is fairly rare.

              Used one swab on my Canon D60 sensor, WOW what a difference! Instructions come with a link to a video that shows how to use the swab. The swab is the same height as the sensor, one wipe from side to side then back and cleaning is done. I will never be without these in my camera bag.

                    I gave up on sending my cameras out to be cleaned. I had bad experiences with the local shops, so I decided to do it myself. Follow the included instructions and save a bunch of $$$. The paddles did not leave any streaks on the sensors. As long as you wipe left/right one time you will be good. This is the best product for the money out there.

                        It was a whole lot easier to use than I thought it would be. I watched a couple of videos on youtube and was pretty confident to try it after a while. The sensor swab cleared my sensor really well. I ended up using 2 because the first one was kinda dry and just smudged the oil across the sensor, the second one finished it, though.

                          It's useful to clean the sensor, but it leaves the liquid on top of the surface. You have to use several swabs to achieve the idea result.

                              Purchased after a gust of dust hit my sensor. Another camera had dust and even a couple of spots from liquid. Although it took multiple sticks, my sensors went from horrible at small apertures to usable. Even the spots that have been on my old camera for well over a year are almost gone. I'm going to order a couple more packs to finish the job and have around for the next incident.

                                  Reason why
                                  1. It was very difficult to use this product to clean D3200 Sensor it is simply too big and not flexible and you can't get the edges of the sensor very good either.
                                  2. Had to use 2 out of 4 in a pack too clean a miner smug also making it very expensive to clean.
                                  I will never buy this product again and I do not recommend it either.

                                    Excellent product, simple to use and gave great results to my older EOS.

                                        Nearly removed all of the dust using a rocket blower & the Kinetronics SpeckGrabber; sensor cleaning cycle in the D7100 did nothing. One spot left, so I broke out the Eclipse swabs. Mistake!

                                        On the bright side, they removed the spot. But 1 of the 4 swabs was missing the cloth.

                                        Have a clean sensor, but that's because of $53 for a professional cleaning.

                                        What's wrong w. this product, besides QC? Mentioned my experience to folks on the DPReview site & they think the swabs have too much cleaning fluid.

                                        Wet cleaning alternative: Get dry swabs & cleaning fluid, adding the later yourself BUT VERY SPARINGLY!

                                          I do a lot of traveling and often needed sensors cleaned when there was no one to clean them. Took a little instruction on how to do the sensor cleaning and the instructor recommended these Eclipse swabs. Since he runs an authorized Nikon repair shop I figured he knew what he is talking about. Great product that has helped me keep sensors clean even when I am in Africa dealing with all the dust there.

                                            The reason for only 4 stars is that there is a "nack" to learning how much pressure to use "so swab handle bends". I bought these for a camera cleaning class. Had the instructor not had used swabs that we practiced on a little mirror, I would not have know the exact pressure to use. Once we all had practiced on the mirror, it was easy to actually clean my camera. B&H also sells a 12-pack of dry swabs, but they do not sell the Eclipse solution. I would rather have had the dry 12-pack with a separate solution bottle, so there wouldn't be any chance of the pre-moistened swab drying out in the packet. All in all, a very good product.

                                                I used this product for the first time (it was also my first time trying to clean a camera sensor) and the ease of use and results I got were fantastic. My sensor was very dirty and with one swipe of the swab I had a very clean sensor. The packaging was perfect for that one time use and ease of opening make it a quick process. I will definitely use this product in all my cleanings.

                                                    My camera had a few spots on it that would not blow out. I followed the instructions exactly as indicated, on these swabs. After using the first one, I checked my sensor and had more junk on it (remnants from the cloth itself maybe) than I started with. It also had lots of streaks as well. I went through 4 of the swabs trying to clean the sensor. Not only did these swabs not get the sensor clean they caused damage to the sensor. I ended up with a scratched sensor and a bill from Nikon for approximately $600 for a new sensor.

                                                      My D7100 sensor got very dirty after a recent canoe trip. I tried the air blower with no success, so I tried the swabs and I was surprised at how easy it was. I ended up having to use a second swab to get the last bit of dirt, but the sensor tested clean after the second swab. Even though I do all I can to keep my sensor clean when changing lenses, I don't have to worry having to pay the local shop $ to clean my sensor in the future.

                                                          Comments about Photographic Solutions Sensor Swab Plus with Eclipse for Type 2 Sensors (4 Pack):

                                                          Even if you're careful to change lenses away from dust, "breathing" will eventually capture some. Inevitably some will end up on the sensor. After noticing some large spots in the photos of my old EOS 30D that were not removed by blowing one of these swabs did the trick. Perfectly sized for the APS-C size.
