Product Highlights
  • 2 LED Lights
  • No Canned Air
  • Use with DSLRs with Cleaning Systems

The Visible Dust Arctic Butterfly 724 (Super Bright) is now equipped with 2 super bright LEDs that illuminate the sensor while in operation. This illumination reduces the possibility of fibers being dragged accidentally against the surrounding cavity hence reducing the potential cause of smear usually caused by contaminated fibers.

With the LED as a guide, it becomes easier to spot dust particles. The internal engine meets certain RPM standards and also creates a centrifugal force that enhances dust rejection as well as bolstering the charge enhancement of fibers.

These combined patented features that include SCF (Super Charged Fibers) makes the Arctic Butterfly 724 (Super Bright) a superb sensor cleaning tool. These enhancements involve nano-coating technology for charge enhancements as well as by using super thin fibers for maximum lift capability along the rotary motion for cleaning/charging - all without the use of canned air.

Because of its safety features, all models of Arctic Butterfly can be safely used on ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) coated sensor and DLSR's with built in sensor cleaning systems.

Note! Requires 2 AAA batteries (not included)

Three stage power button
Equipped with two bright LED lights
Enhanced fiber cleaning through patented rotary motion
No canned air - completely travel safe
Super-charged fiber technology
Metal ferrule is attached to the body of the Arctic Butterfly through a non-conductive joint

    Taking my D7000 in for a cleaning costs $40. After the last cleaning and within a month I had more dust build-up on the sensor. At this rate, within a year I could easily pay for the Arctic Butterfly 724 in professional cleanings, so I decided to try it.Upon opening the battery compartment I discovered the construction was about that of a common small flashlight (very light, thin plastic). I had trouble getting one of the batteries in (tight springs) and the metal tab the spring attached to appeared to shift out of the plastic slot slightly. Nothing broke or went wrong, but the perception I got was "I have to be more careful with this next time I change batteries"... hence the 4 stars and not 5. The brush and light parts however appears well built.I had dust that was firmly affixed to the sensor and wouldn't blow out with clean dry compressed air. The Artic Butterfly 724's very soft bristles immediately started removing the dust on the first swipe. It was VERY easy to see what I was doing with the lights and the naked eye. It removes some dust and other dust appears to move/smear a little. After about 12 times of going in with the Arctic Butterfly I could find no more dust. I shot some test photos and sure enough I was back to taking clean photos. I can't say I look forward to getting more dust on my sensor but when I do I can't wait to attack it again for free.

    product was used several times in a try to clean the sensor after i have decided to give a try to clean it myself.and trying out the arctic butterfly was a mistake.
    followed instructions but, it seemed to worsen the state of my sensor.
    besides, the built of the butterfly is of poor quality...several times the brush simply detached and flew through the air

        Does not work. Period. Do not buy this product , it does not work! Shame on you Visible Dust for selling a product for this much money that does not operate correctly. The brush flies off the handle when you spin it to charge the bristles. The product gets one star because rating it a no stars is not an option.

          Comments about VisibleDust Arctic Butterfly 724 (Super Bright):

          Only three stars for this one although it does work. Several of my photographer friends recommended this item but instructed me how to use it and what to be cautious of. First caution was the head flying off when spinning. Didn't happen to me this time but then I did cup my hand around the brush while it was doing its thing. Easy to see the sensor and dust particles and the Artic Butterfly 724 cleaned the dust off my sensor in three strokes. Second caution a bit of a PITA getting the spun brush back in the plastic holder. What I did was to twist the brush slightly against the inner edge of the cap and continued twisting until the brush was inside the cap. Then it attached with no problem.

          Overall, the brush does remove debris however if the debris is more than just dust it won't come off. I had to have my camera professionally cleaned after using this product because the debris would not come off the sensor.

                Comments about VisibleDust Arctic Butterfly 724 (Super Bright):

                I have 3 digital dslrs and finally bit the bullet to clean the sensor myself with more than a blower. I, like most of you I'm sure, studied multiple popular websites on the subject and I decided to purchase the Butterfly as the third method in the sequence of cleaning methods (in camera shake, blower, sensor swipe with brush and finally using a solution on the sensor). This product worked fine but I don't think it is a good value at all. It is not very well constructed (others have noted it's poor quality and I agree) for the money they charge.

                If I were to decide again I would go to the cleaning solutions for the sensor. More reliable and far less expensive.

                      I needed something that I can use to get rid of debris on the go.

                      The package and sheath are great for keeping it with you. Even if leds would not help you to see the specs better they are great for using it where ever you go.

                      When charged the brush does spin so that the leds are not always on the flat side. Also keep the blower with you to get rid of the specs on lens and chamber first.

                                This should be a lot cheaper for a spinning brush with two lights that aren't very bright. Hopefully someone will come out with much cheaper competing product - maybe even one that comes with its own batteries!

                                  Taking my D7000 in for a cleaning costs $40. After the last cleaning and within a month I had more dust build-up on the sensor. At this rate, within a year I could easily pay for the Arctic Butterfly 724 in professional cleanings, so I decided to try it.Upon opening the battery compartment I discovered the construction was about that of a common small flashlight (very light, thin plastic). I had trouble getting one of the batteries in (tight springs) and the metal tab the spring attached to appeared to shift out of the plastic slot slightly. Nothing broke or went wrong, but the perception I got was "I have to be more careful with this next time I change batteries"... hence the 4 stars and not 5. The brush and light parts however appears well built.I had dust that was firmly affixed to the sensor and wouldn't blow out with clean dry compressed air. The Artic Butterfly 724's very soft bristles immediately started removing the dust on the first swipe. It was VERY easy to see what I was doing with the lights and the naked eye. It removes some dust and other dust appears to move/smear a little. After about 12 times of going in with the Arctic Butterfly I could find no more dust. I shot some test photos and sure enough I was back to taking clean photos. I can't say I look forward to getting more dust on my sensor but when I do I can't wait to attack it again for free.

                                        The Arctic Butterfly should suffice in 99% of your sensor cleaning situations. It is an invaluable tool on photo tours for a quick and effective dusting of the sensor. It just works!

                                          After the 2 batteries were inserted, the switch started the motor properly. However the leds kept inactive since then despite my attemps to light them up.
                                          My conclusion is that their quality control failed to detect the problem

                                                product was used several times in a try to clean the sensor after i have decided to give a try to clean it myself.and trying out the arctic butterfly was a mistake.
                                                followed instructions but, it seemed to worsen the state of my sensor.
                                                besides, the built of the butterfly is of poor quality...several times the brush simply detached and flew through the air
