Cautionary notes
  • The VisibleDust sensor cleaning solutions and swabs are calibrated to work together to produce optimal and safe results. Please do not use alternative solutions with this swab. A simple grain of quartz which is found in cheaper solutions is enough to produce an expensive scratch on the low pass filter. These solutions are manufactured to the highest standard of quality that is practiced in pharmaceutical industries.

  • VisibleDust solutions are calibrated for normal evaporative rates:
    To keep the swab moist at all time to reduce the risk of scratches
    To increase the cleaning power, less swabbing more economical
    To reduce friction by being moist at all times during swabbing

  • The potential risk of fast evaporative solutions used as sensor cleaning is the following:
    An increase in the risk of damage and stress to sensor coating by using premature dry swab
    A great reduction in cleaning power by shortening the contact time between contaminants and solution due to the increased evaporation rate of the solution
    An increase in friction by using a premature drying swab, resulting in static charge build up leading to an even greater dust accumulation on the sensor

  • These cleaning liquids are intended to be placed on the swab first, so the concern for liquid seeping through the sensor is not valid or accurate. On the other hand, the disadvantages of a generic brand for fast evaporative liquid used for sensor cleaning may in fact cause damage to the sensor by requiring repeat swabbing and is not recommended.

      I noticed a couple weeks ago that I had dust on my Canon T2i's focusing screen (shows up in viewfinder, but not in my photos) and set to work to remove them using a blower which I did pretty easily. Unfortunately, in doing so, I somehow caused dust to get stuck on my sensor and they would not budge with a blower. I got distressed (since now the dust shows up on my photos!) and seriously considered taking my camera body to get it professionally cleaned, but I thought I'd try looking for a solution that's cheaper and I can do myself. Came across this product and decided to buy it.

      I was actually kind of hesitant to clean the sensor myself. I've used a blower before but never even come close to touching the sensor with anything in fear of breaking my camera. But cleaning with this product was really quick and easy and I managed to clean my sensor in 2-3 swipes. Definitely recommended!

      Pretty useful cleaner. Comes 4 in a pack, plus the solution. Separate solution and wipes have an advantage due to less worries about the swabs being too dry, and causing damage to the sensor itself. It really does clean the sensor pretty well although you'd have to use AT LEAST 2 swabs per cleaning. So in reality the 4 pack only cleans twice not 4 times. This is due to the smudging after the first cleaning. The second swab basically cleans the smudges. So 1 swab for the initial cleaning then the 2nd swab is for cleaning up after the first one. After its done you get a pretty clean sensor though.I would have given this 4 stars because it does work. Though [$] for 4 swabs, which really is like 2 swabs is a bit expensive.

                  Giving 4 instead of 5 stars, because of price.
                  I found out it would be about $200 to have the camera store clean my sensor. I went on Youtube, and discovered all kinds of alternatives. These will do the job, for the most part. But use canned air first, and be careful...
                  I've had issues with my old camera, and the air and then these, did the job.

                          I was taking macro shots of a tangerine, and once I was viewing the pictures on my laptop, I noticed a bunch of black spots. I thought it was dust on the lens, so I checked my lens. No dust on the front or rear elements, so I knew it had to be on the sensor. I locked up the mirror and saw a bunch of tiny dots. I tried cleaning it with compressed air and some of the dots disappeared, but the majority were still on the sensor. Panicking, I googled on how to clean camera sensors. Saw several ways to when looking on POTN, and more people recommended this wet method. I like buying from B&H, so I immediately went here and ordered it right after reading the reviews here and several other websites. It came well before the estimated arrival date, by the way, so even more credit to B&H.

                          The wipes are easy to use. I simply followed the instructions provided in the packaging, place one tip of the wipe in the solution vial and slowly flip to let the solution touch the wipe. Repeat on the other tip of the wipe. Start on one side of the sensor, and with light pressure, swipe across. I could still see that a few dots remained, so I did another pass (not suggested in the instructions). This removed more dots, but I could still see one or two dots remaining. I flipped the wipe to the other (clean side) and did a couple more passes. Voi-la, no dots anywhere. I did some before and after test shots, and was completely blown away on how great the wipe worked. I still have three more wipes left in the event that I get some more organic dust (from what I learned) on the sensor, and I will never change my lenses in the living room ever again since I'm assuming those tiny dots were skin cells (organic dust) and the like.

                          I'd definitely recommend this product for your sensor cleaning needs, and if you're contemplating ordering it else where, don't. Order from B&H since they have really low prices, great customer service, and really fast processing and shipping times. Make sure you get the appropriate size wipes for your camera body; i.e. full frame, 1.6x crop, 1.5x crop, etc.

                              I purchased a Canon DSLR for shooting time-lapse and within two weeks it had many dust pieces on the sensor that would not come off with simple blowing. Needless to say it would be extremely time consuming to take the dust out of the hundred of shots I shoot for time-lapse each day. It also would not be practical to send in the camera for service every time the sensor was dusty but I was hesitant about cleaning the sensor myself. After reading and watching bunch of tutorials on the subject I decide to go for it. I am glad I did, this product worked flawlessly!

                                I was pretty scared to clean my own sensor but after Nikon stung me with a $ bill I was ready to give it a try. It was about as easy as it could be. I also bought the loupe by the same company and it helped out a ton way better than squinting under a light bulb. In less than a minute of stressing myself out then just going for it I had a perfectly clean sensor for way less than Nikon was charging me. Too easy

                                      It looks that it works fine. I have no more dust on my sensor. This was the cheapest product for sensor cleaning that I found. Also, I always prefere to buy from B&H, because they have the greatest customer service ever.

                                        I used this on my Pentax K5 and K 2000 to clean the sensor. Yes I have had to use a few swabs - but I had avoided cleaning the sensor for some time. There are 4 in a pack and you may need to use an entire pack - and not every spec of dirt/dust gets cleaned from the sensor but it does an amazing job. I have since picked up another spare pack because I want to have this product on hand for next time I get dirt/dust in the sensor to avoid spotsa apperaring on my pics especially with blue sky backgrounds

                                            At first, I was a bit worried about cleaning my sensor myself, but after using the EZ sensor cleaning kit I will do it again if needed - the product was easy to use and worked as advertised!

                                            I use this product to remove dust from my sensor in my Canon 7D once a year or more often in dusty conditions. This kit is remarkable as to the way the swabs and fluid work together. It seems like the dirt lifts off the sensor quickly. This is good because I don't like to waste time doing this even though you have to be careful of the sensor. Best find for me as of this date.

                                                  It took me two swabs (4 swipes) to get my sensor clean. But the bottom line is that my sensor is clean. A little bit expensive, but well worth it for the peace of mind using a cleaning kit designed for your 1.6x crop sensor.

                                                  It's pretty difficult to get the alcoholic solution out of the vial's small opening, so getting a given number of "precise" drops out of it are pretty much impossible. But it should be good as long as you get some solution on the corners and let it sit and soak for a few seconds or so.

                                                    I ended up using all four swabs for a single cleaning of my D7000, and there are still spots and now a large smear. I'm giving it two starts because it was easy to use.

                                                            After a trip to the Storm King Arts Center on a drizzly day, I got some water spots and a fleck of mud on the image sensor of my Pentax K10D SLR. The cleaning kit was easy to use, but did leave some streaks on the sensor after two passes. However, after reapplying cleaning solution and flipping the cleaning pad, I was able to get the sensor perfectly clean with two more passes. It is implied by the manufacturers instructions that you should be able to clean the sensor with only one or two passes, but I guess all dirt is not equal, and mud can be difficult to get off.

                                                                I used the visible dust swabs and liquid to clean my Canon Rebel XTi after noticing splotches in my photos. They worked like a charm.I also gave a swab to my friend with the same camera who was going to send his to Canon, and he told me that his photos became clearer and more vivid. Great Product, Definitely worth the [$],since it saved me approx. $50 to $75 additional it would have cost to have Canon clean it.Not to mention 2 weeks time without my camera.My only problem with this kit is that it cannot be used to clean the penta-mirror or focusing screen. It would have been nice to get both jobs done from the same kit.
