These VisibleDust DSLR Swabs - Orange Series are specially tailored for cleaning the delicate sensor in DSLR cameras with a 1.6x sensor size range (16mm).
The very soft DHAP fabric of the Orange Series swabs has traditionally been used for cleaning delicate surfaces such as telescopes and other scientific optics, and is ideal for critical cleaning. Due to its ultra softness, less pressure is applied to the sensor through the swabs while cleaning, thereby reducing the risk of squeezing or scrapping debris on the sensor, and the thin structure provides better edge to edge cleaning maneuverability. The Orange Series swabs work best with VDust Formula and also with Smear Away solutions, but are not compatible with the Sensor Clean solution. The unique woven pattern of the DHAP fabric minimizes shedding of the swab while increasing absorbency.
The patented mini-channel paddle, with contour, provides an even saturation of the paddles surface while preventing pooling and vertical flow at the edge. This reduces streaks associated with traditional flat surface paddles. The mini-channels also provide an extra reservoir to absorb any excessive liquid thereby prolonging the moisture life of the swab during the cleaning process.
