                Comments about Photographic Solutions Sensor Swab with Eclipse Plus for Type 3 Sensors:

                I shoot outdoors 100% of the time in a very dirty, dusty gritty windy environment. Even though I never change lenses on site, my sensors (D4s, D800, D3, D700) collect muck like Chuck Taylors in mud. Driving 60 miles round trip to Nikon for cleaning is out of the question, so after very helpful phone suggestions from a B&H sales professional, I gave the Sensor Swabs w/Eclipse a try.

                I'm not gonna' lie, it isn't easy. I can burn through 10 swabs before I get the sensor clean. The hardest trick for me is reversing direction after reaching the end of the sensor after the first swipe. You have to keep some bend in the sensor wand, or else the swab doesn't get the gunk. So keeping the tension while changing directions at the end of the sensor is tricky. However, with a little practice, the task can be mastered.

                I have only cleaned the D4S once, and it seems as though there is less space inside the camera to move the swab around without contacting the sides of the area surrounding the sensor.

                Read the directions, find a well light, wind free area to work, and get busy. It takes a lot less time to learn to clean your own sensors than it does to remove dust from thousands of files.

                    Comments about Photographic Solutions Sensor Swab with Eclipse Plus for Type 3 Sensors:

                    I've had success with the separate solution and swabs on my D3s, and thought the pre-moistened swabs would be a neater alternative. Boy was I wrong. These pre-moistened swabs left streaks that I was unable to remove on my sensor after going through about a dozen of these things. And now my camera is going to require professional cleaning.

                    As previously suggested, go with the separate solution and swabs.

                            Buying swabs and eclipse solution bulk is a much better deal than this pre packaged kit.

                            Just returned from shooting in Alaska. Midway through the journey I noticed a line showing up on the pics. After cleaning the lenses it became apparent it was on the sensor. I purchased the Sensor Swabs from B&H upon my return and the pics are clean and free from all marks and dust. I now placed my Canon Mark II and IIIs on a regular cleaning with the Swabs. Good Job!!
