    Packaging is extremely cheap and poorly designed.
    Products feel cheap as well.
    Virtually no instructions, and what is given is vague at best.
    No batteries for arctic butterfly.
    Batteries that came with viewer had rust on them.
    Protective bag for blower is wrong size and poorly designed, worthless.

    This is so overpriced with cheap quality. Would be fine at 1/3 of the cost.
    Don't know of other viable alternatives.

    Tried using a swab with some of the fluid and smeared the surface. I hope I haven't damaged my camera.

    I'm not giving up yet using the stuff, but it sure is suspect.

        Comments about VisibleDust Ultra Sensor Clean Arctic Butterfly 724 (Super Bright) Bundle for 1.0x (24mm) Sensors:

        Purchased this from Italy since the bundle was really difficult to get here. All is SOOO cheap quality ("proudly" made in Canada, guess the Chinese have a better QC). The artic 724 had the two leds not working (bright, bright, bright .....) and when I used it for the first time I got the D800 sensor dirtier because of parts of the brush falling on it. Out of 12 swabs I used 8 out of them before a decent result. And of course I say "decent" not good. Whish I have saved the money for something better.

          If I could give the Artic Butterfly a zero rating, I would. Returned the first for a replacement because of an apparent manufacturing weakness in the collar at the end of the brush that connects to the handle., The brush kept flying off the handle. The replacement worked correctly for exactly one spin before it flew off. On inspecting it, a crack had developed in the same collar as the first one. So, I returned the second on for a refund. In theory, this is a great idea, but in practice, it just doesn't work as advertised. Don't waste your money on it. One additional comment. B&H customer service was outstanding throughout the ordeal.

              If I could give the artic Butterfly a zero, I would. When I first received the Arctic Butterfly and tried to spin it, the brush flew off on repeated attempts. On inspecting the collar on the brush where it attaches to the handle, it appeared a small piece was missing. I returned it to B&H and exchanged it for another one thinking that I got a lemon. When I received the second one, the brush stayed on - for the first spin. When I spun it the second time, the brush flew off the handle. On inspecting the collar, the was a small crack in the collar that made it fit too loosely to stay on. So, it appears that there is a material strength problem with the collar and the design is not very good. So, I returnd it to B&H for a refund. All that said, the customer service by B&ah has been outstanding.

                  I have used Visible Dust tools for many years and now I had to get a new set. I couldn't be more pleased with the new brighter LEDs, as they help a great deal while working inside a camera.
