Photographic Solutions Sensor Swab Ultra 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 Sensor Swab Ultra Reviews

Cleaned My Sony A77ii In One Pass! Excellent!

By Michael
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-26

Both my Sony A77ii and A99ii were experiencing sensor dirt after a trip to the ocean. Even though I was VERY careful when switching lenses, somehow dirt/salt/something got on the sensors of both cameras. UGH! I ordered this kit along with the proper cleaning fluid and followed the instructions carefully after air blowing and camera self-cleaning multiple times that had no effect. This kit did the trick in one pass for the A77ii and two passes for the A99ii. Clean as a whistle, they say. Images for both at f22 against a white background confirmed the sensors were clean. What can I say other than it did the job as prescribed. Don't forget to order the Aero-Clipse Digital Sensor Cleaning Fluid as this box contains only the one-use swaps!

Need a light touch

These swabs are good quality and they do work. But they're expensive and I went through ten of them before I finally got it right. It takes a light touch and unfortunately for me that meant practicing with the swabs at, what comes to be close to $4 a pop CDN (you cannot use a swab more than once ... trust me, I tried!). But the alternative, sending my camera out to the manufacturer and waiting 4 to 6 weeks for it to come back, is simply untenable.

This is the first time I've ever cleaned my sensor and thus the first time using this product. If you are reading this review (and never used this product before), be warned that you must purchase the cleaning solution to go along with it. The info on this page wasn't entirely accurate or rather did not specify that you need it. I notified the B&H staff and they were very apologetic and informed me that they were looking into the description for it. The cleaning solution (# PHAERO) is sold separately. As far as my thoughts on this product, it was rather easy to use. You just follow the instructions found on the company's website (listed on back of package). Note: if once you use the swab and see what appear to be scratches don't fret it will dissipate soon after (so long as you do exactly as described in the instruction video).

Works!

Cleaned my sensor perfectly, only needed 3 so I have plenty to use if needed again.

Great swabs for cleaning crop sensor

By Mike
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-09-28

I checked PSI website for correct swab to clean my Nikon D500. They recommended the Type 3 - 24mm you use for full frame . Don't use it. The Type 3 - 17mm swab is the best one to use for a crop sensor. I had to use 3 swabs to get the sensor really clean. There also a magnifier with a light built in you can use to view the sensor. Definitely get it . So worth the $15

No muy contento con el material del swab

Las compr porque me parecian que tenian el mejor material para limpiar el sensor de mi cmara; una Sony A7riii, pero en cuanto las us con el liquido Aeroeclipse el swab dej residuos en el sensor y el material parecia no absorbia el liquido de manera que el sensor recibiera distribuidamente la limpieza.

Best sensor swab ever. It won't leave any sting on the sensor. Never disappointed.
