Product Highlights
  • Inspection Device for Digital Sensor
  • 7x Magnification
  • Helps Avoid Over-Cleaning of Sensor
  • Made From Fluorine-Coated Optical Glass
  • Portable, Flat Shape
  • Four LED Lights Positioned at Angles

Visible Dust's Mini Quasar 7x Sensor Loupe Sensor Inspection Device is a high-quality pocket version of the Sensor Loupe technology used to reduce the damage to your digital camera sensor by excessive cleaning. This reduces costs associated with keeping your sensor clean. The Mini Quasar is made of the highest quality optical glass with fluorine coated surface for the sharpest image possible.

The Mini Quasar is equipped with 4 super bright LED lights positioned at angles to identify the smallest object on the sensor surface (usually impossible to see otherwise). Regular LED light penetrates different layers of filters to produce useless checkered-shape visual images of various filter depths without focusing on sensor surface itself. The Mini Quasar can eliminate this problem.

The Mini Quasar requires two (2) CR2032 lithium batteries (included), and comes with a soft, coated foam black box to protect the device.

            • Sensor cleaning

            Comments about VisibleDust Mini Quasar 7x Sensor Loupe Sensor Inspection Device:

            I ordered this product to help with the cleaning of my Nikon D7100 sensor. Having completed that job for the first time, I can't imagine having done it without this loupe.

            I really like the shape. It is easy to hold and maneuver. I can't imagine the round loupes being easier to use than this one while trying to swab the sensor with your other hand. It also worked well for examining lenses during cleaning.

            The switch is somewhat flimsy, but should be fine if treated with care. This is why I gave it 4 stars (otherwise it would be a 5). The lens is very clear and sharp. This along with the LEDs, makes it easy to see the surface of the sensor as long as you view it at the correct angle.

            The case is nice and sturdy and lined with a custom cut layer of dense foam. It is much bigger than required to fit the loupe, which provides extra protection but makes it less convenient to store.

            Overall I am very satisfied with the product and would buy it again.

            Comments about VisibleDust Mini Quasar 7x Sensor Loupe Sensor Inspection Device:

            The loupe is compact, produces sufficient lights and manification for inspection but is hard to handle due to its thickness. The overall design and make does not feel as robust and well thought out for it's value.

            This tool opened a totally new perspective on the most important part of the camera which is of course the sensor. To research its condition and cleanliness is absolutely necessary. It is especially important for those who are filming video with cameras that have a large sensor (35mm).

                It's great at allowing you to see contaminants on your sensor. The only complaint I have is that the case that it comes with isn't very good at keeping dust off the viewing glass.
