Photographic Solutions US2BOX overview

Changing lenses on your camera when you are in the field can cause dust and debris to land on your sensor when it is exposed. The 12-pack of Type 2 Sensor Swab Ultra from Photographic Solutions is a 17mm wide swab designed to clean oil, dust, and debris from a digital camera's CCD or CMOS sensor.

The thick and double wrapped swab is highly absorbent, and each swab is individually packaged to maintain the purity of the swab for cleaning. Additionally, fibers from the Sensor Swab do not shed once the sensor has been swiped across. Furthermore, Photographic Solutions recommends not removing the Sensor Swab from the wrapper until you are ready to use it, since debris may catch onto the swab and transfer to the sensor when cleaning.

Photographic Solutions US2BOX reviews

Type 2 Sensor Swab Ultra (12-Pack, 17mm) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy to use! Really clear instruction on their website with a short YouTube video. Super easy to use and felt really safe. It was my first time cleaning my sensor and I am no longer afraid! Cleaned like a charm! And if it's your first time finally cleaning your sensor after 4 years of beating up, definitely get a larger pack like this 12 pack because I used 5 of them to really get my sensor clean. I've read that the pre-moistened ones have too much fluid. If you just put 4-5 drops at most at the tip, it's the perfect amount!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These Sensor Swabs really do work well! Following some research I decided to purchase Sensor Swab ULTRA Type 2. I used these Sensor Swabs as instructed and to clean an APS-C camera sensor area which showed considerable deposits of what looked like built-up grime. These deposits on the sensor could not be removed by light brushing or vacuuming. Applying three drops of cleaning liquid to one side of a Swab, I gently dragged the Swab across the surface of the camera sensor from one side to the other. This was easy to do and all foreign material was instantly removed from the sensor. Then reversing the Swab, a return sweep across the sensor in the opposite direction, further restored the surface quality. I am extremely happy with the results of this simple process. Thorough testing of the camera post-cleaning, revealed all offending spots and marks, which previously contributed to flawed photos, were no longer present. Thank you for this product which I have found in all ways, performs even beyond my own high expectations!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the hassle On mirrorless sensor: I've used these for a couple of sensor cleans with the Aero-Clipse solution from the same manufacturer. Very easy to overmoisten and/or leave streaks or require 2-4 swabs for nearly complete clean. Instead I use the eyeleads gel stick, which B&H doesn't yet stock, for my camera. Effectiveness, time, ease of use, and cost are all far lower than this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product This is a good product. It is the right size for my sensor and it works reasonably well. I find that I have to use 3 or 4 swabs to get my sensor clean, but I think that's just the way it is. I don't think it is a flaw in the product. A little pricey considering that you only get about 3 - 4 cleanings from a box, but I don't know of a better alternative. Definitely cheaper than having someone else do it for you.
Date published: 2016-04-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Latest change is NOT an improvement In my most recent box of sensor swabs I noticed that the fabric is different, with a subtle ribbed texture (prior versions were smooth). Unlike previous Sensor Swabs, this batch left streaks on the sensor and I had to fish an old version out of the trash to remove them. This is definitely NOT an improvement; I will use someone else's swabs from now on.
Date published: 2017-04-17
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Consider using aps-h (20 mm) for Sony A6300 sensor Nice quality swabs to clean your sensor. Definitely less expensive comparable options out there. I found the Type 2 swab listed for an APS-C sensors to be too narrow to cover the width of a Sony A6300 sensor. You may consider using the APS-H sensor swab, which measures 20mm instead of 17mm.
Date published: 2017-02-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works! And It's Easy to Do The company provides a video demonstrating how use the swab. I followed the instruction carefully applying the swab. Discard after a sweep in each direction. I was a little anxious at first because I had to use 2 swabs to remove a difficult piece of ?? My sensor is clean.
Date published: 2017-09-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product that works as advertised I have used these sensor swabs steadily for many years now for any of my cameras with APS-C sized sensors. When paired with Eclipse liquid they work perfectly when used as directed. I've used other approaches to sensor cleaning but this is by far the best for me.
