    I have a Leica DMR and it creates so good 3D feeling than any of exisitng latest DSLR. Recently, I found there are quite a lot of dirt points on the sensor and some of them are hardly to be removed by regular methods. I start to search at B&H website and found this Magic swab. It is so easy to use and very effective, only in minutes, all of these dirt points gone! I would like to recommend to others who have the same issues on their sensors! reat product with very reasonable price! Only need to keep in mind - while you sweep from one end of sensor to another end, do not leave sensor and then sweep from this end back t another end, it is all. I only use one swab and obtain very clean sensor.

    I had a few dust spots on my sensor filter, and tried these swabs (after watching their video on how to use their product). Well, after using an entire pack of these swabs, I ended up replacing the dust spots with long streaks, which ultimately I ended up having to have professionally removed. My guess is that the Eclipse that was preloaded on the swab had dried up in the packagae. If you have to, get the swabs plain and apply the Eclipse at the time of use (2 drops, that's all).

              Built up a lot of sensor dirt, but shooting mostly near wide open I never really noticed. I have been doing a sunrise project and stopped down and wow, that added a lot of post processing dust removal. I researched this product a bit off BnH and liked what I read. It did a really great job, near 100%. Make sure you get the right one for you sensor as there are two sizes. DO NOT over use this product and DO NOT use it for more than one swipe. Follow the directions. The bees in the sky are gone.

                  This is as straight forward to use as it could be given that you have to expose your DSLR sensor, which is deep in the body, and wipe it clean. Raise the mirror, open the shutter, place the swab against one side, apply enough pressure to flex the handle, wipe to the other side of the sensor, release the pressure flexing the handle the other direction and wipe back to the starting edge. Take a photo of the blue sky and check for any remaining dust. Repeat with another swab if necessary.

                  I had a little wet-looking area after the first attempt and was concerned that I had done something wrong. Calling the 800 number then emailing an image of the sky showing the problem got me straight. The service was prompt, friendly and professional. These folks really care and the product works.

                    These swipes are outragous though they are a bit on the salty side. I have to watch my sodium intake so I'm going to go easy on these puppies.

                          i've used the sensor swabs previously and they have been great. the current batch i received has too much liquid on the swab and it is not possible to get the sensor clean without leaving streaks of fluid. i also have the sensor swabs that do not have the liquid on them, so i was able to finish cleaning the sensor with one of those. i tried a few of them and they were all too "wet". previous batches did not have this problem. I purchased the liquid separately to use with the dry swabs. that way i can control the amount of fluid on the swab. disappointing because these are the best option for travel.

                            Not for my 5D mark II camera. It clean up the middle area but still have some dirt in the corner area, the second try it made it worse. It could be i wasn't clean it the right way (i used 3 swaps). But a good thing this product seems do not scratch your lens because it made from special materials. If you have never clean up the sensor maybe it is a bit harder, If your lens is very dirty, better bring it to the specialist camera repair. It did not work for me even i used 3 swipes, still has a streak line on the sensor. I took to specialist for $, and my sensor like new again. You can try it, but be very careful. It maybe works for some camera, but not for my 5D Mark II. Good Luck if you want to try it.

                                  Pre-moistened sensor swabs are a complete rip-off! In trying to clean my D4s sensor, I burned through three packs of this over-priced junk. All they did was move the streaks around, leaving me with a camera sensor so badly impaired I can't use it. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

                                          I bought this product based on comments seen on the Leica User Group web page. Let me just say this: it's easy to use and works great! My only 'negative' is that the item is not cheap, however, since it works so well I will buy more in the future.
                                          I would highly recommend the product

                                                Hate to say it, but this did not work at all.
                                                I had a friend who has cleaned "sensors" many times help me.
                                                I did the wipe as instructed (watched the vid) and it left a lot of streaks.
                                                So I did it again and more streaks, in a different spot.
                                                Had my experienced friend try it, and he immediately said there was way too much solution on the swabs... that was leaving the streaks.
                                                He got his swabs out with his Eclipse solution, put on 2-3 drops , cleaned the "sensor" the same way and no streaks or blobs on the "sensor"... perfect.
                                                I have since ordered the dry swabs from B&H and the solution from Photographic Solutions (B&H says they can't ship it)
                                                So, next, I'm going to use the dry swabs with the solution.. just not as much solution as on the pre-wet ones I bought.
                                                The D800 seems to leave a lot of blobs on the sensor filter.

                                                    The swabs worked as advertised, with no problems at all.
                                                    I would certainly order some more in the future and would recommend them to others.

                                                        I had to clean my sensor on my Canon 5DM2 and didn't have the time to send off to repair center for cleaning. So I ordered the Sensor Swabs. They were easy to use and did a nice job. Not perfect, but realy good. It left a few spots in the corners after the 1st swab, but removed after using the 2nd swab.
                                                        I'd buy again.

                                                          I was having trouble keeping dust off the sensor in my D600. I decided to purchase these after a recommendation from a fellow photographer who used them on her D800 with great results. After following the tutorials on Sensor Swab's website, the cleaning process couldn't have been easier! The swab completely removed all the dust and dirt on the sensor and I was back in business. I'm not sure why other reviewers are having issues with these; must be operator error!

                                                            When you "need" to clean your sensor these do the job! Watch the video, follow the instructions, you may have to use two. End result excellent.

                                                              Great for cleaning sensors, the only problem is it takes 2 swabs to clean the sensor. The first one does a good job at removing the dirt/ dust but leaves a residue behind the second swab cleans what the first one left.
