Visual Departures Dewitt's Boar Bristle Brush

You Pay: $13.50

The Visual Departure Dewitt's Boar Bristle Brush is made of 100% natural boar bristle in a molded nylon handle. While the Dewitt's Brush looks similar to an old-fashioned badger-hair shaving brush, the difference is in the boar bristles. Boar Bristles are both stiffer and springier, which is better to get dirt and grit out of hard-to-reach areas. They are feathered at the tip to pick up dust and to protect painted finishes. This brush is ideal for cleaning all types of camera gear and sheet film holders.

Dewitt's Brush measures 4" long and 1" in diameter. The 2" handle is made from molded white nylon and is contoured for easy grip. The feather-tip bristles measure 2".

    I do a lot of outdoor photography, from the coast to the mountains or desert. This brush is great for cleaning my camera and tripod. Works well to remove dust and fine sand grains, easy to keep clean.

    Simple Effective Camera Cleaning

    Best Uses

    • Dusting Cameras

    Comments about Visual Departures Dewitt's Boar Bristle Brush:

    I used the brush just today to clean my cameras, and again it worked perfectly.

    i think I first saw Dewitt Jones nonchalantly using one of these as he talked about creativity on a video I watched years ago. At any rate, it seemed a great idea to me then. I meant to go out and buy a shaving brush at the drugstore, but I couldn't find one -- a shaving brush, that is. Now that I have the brush, I understand why the design was chosen. It has the strength and spring in the bristles to remove dust quickly; also it is light, and the handle makes the brush easy to hold and guide.

    The brush makes canned air unnecessary. That's great, since it is hard to brush particles into the workings of a camera, but canned air can ledge things inside a camera more quickly than one can imagine.

    I do wish, however, the brush came with a pouch of some kind that kept it clean. I guess this is one more use for food storage bags.

      Simple design. Takes up little room in my camera bag or my HummVee Safari photo vest, also purchased at B & H. Great for cleaning dust and grit out the crevasses of the camera and lens. Soft bristles are great for dusting off the lens filter.

      Comments about Visual Departures Dewitt's Boar Bristle Brush:

      My new Right Stuff tripod had some very fine sand in the leg channels and I hadn't been able to get it out. I was afraid that the sand would wear down the groves. This brush, which looks like a shaving brush, works perfectly to get the fine sand out. I now carry it in my camera case to keep my tripod clean. It's also good to clean from the outside of the camera, but not the lenses. This is not a fine brush. Not to be used for lens cleaning.

          A colleague recommended this brush - I think he saw it at a NAPP conference a few months ago. I decided to try it after a recent outdoor event in Battery Park in lower Manhattan and my gear was covered in construction dust. With the brush I was able to remove the worst of the dust before separating the lenses from the camera bodies etc.

          Great value - I carry it everywhere now.

            Comments about Visual Departures Dewitt's Boar Bristle Brush:

            I can't fault this brush for anything. It's effective for brushing off equipment. With the stiff, but not harsh, bristles it gets into nooks and cranies that softer brushes or a microfiber cloth miss. Compressed air doesn't always reach these places, and is awkward to carry in the field. The brush is soft enough for glass lenses and probably most plastic as well. It's compact and easy to store in a snack sized baggie (keeps it from picking up crud from your vest pocket or bag. Can't go wrong for the price.

                    This works perfectly for cleaning your tripod. I sure could have used it after shooting the slot canyons! I did not own it then, but bought if after seeing others in the canyons use it. We also live in NM so sand getting in my tripod is a normal part of living here in NM even if the tripod sections never touch sand.

                        An excellent and cheap way to store this in your bag to avoid damaging the bristles: get a 5 1/2 plastic prescription bottle from the pharmacy. It holds the brush safely and they'll probably give it to you.

                                        This brush cleans all the small parts of my Canon DSLR perfectly! I never would have thought about using the shaving brush, but I saw this being used in one of the Kelby Training video. Great solution!! I use it daily to dust off my camera.

                                              Works well. Has a nice quality feel. I need to figure out how to keep the bristles covered.

                                                  This brush is great on trips where dusty or sandy outdoor settings may contaminate your gear and compressed air is not available
