VisibleDust Quasar R overview

  • 1Description

Illuminate and locate dust and other particles on the heart of your camera with the Quasar R 5x Sensor Loupe Magnifier from VisibleDust. Its extra-low dispersion (ED) glass element features an MgF2 fluorine coating, which provides a high level of clarity while minimizing chromatic aberrations.

The loupe offers 5x magnification power and 14 LEDs, including 7 white diodes and 7 red ones with Dark Adaptation Technology. The wavelength of these crimson LEDs allows for better viewing in dark environments once your pupils have dilated and your eyes have adjusted, thus allowing for better visibility of the spots and debris on your image sensor. Additionally, VisibleDust uses the term Bright Vue technology to describe the benefit provided by the combination of the brightness of the LEDs and their vari-angled orientation in the loupe. This setup is designed to create a 3D image of your sensor as you peer through the lens, helping you see even the smallest spots clearly.

5x magnification power
14 LEDs, including 7 white diodes and 7 red ones
Red lights feature Dark Adaptation Technology, meaning their wavelength increases your visual acuity in dark environments, thus improving visibility of spots and debris on the image sensor. By first turning out the lights in the room for a minute, and then switching on the red LEDs and looking through the loupe, you allow your pupils to adjust to the dark. Then, as you inspect the sensor, your pupils will remain dilated to let more light in. Red lights help preserve your night vision, and may make it easier to see certain types of particles

67mm metal ring accepts optional filters, close-up lenses, extension tubes, and hoods to enhance visibility even further
Lights are powered by 2 supplied CR2032 lithium batteries
Foam-filled hard case is included to store and protect the loupe when it's not in use

    VisibleDust Quasar R reviews

    Quasar R 5x Sensor Loupe Magnifier with Dark Adaptation Technology is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very useful I wouldn't be able to clean my sensor correctly without this product or something similar. The choice of two colors for illumination is helpful and a feature I did not see on comparable loupes. It's amazing how one color will show some kinds of spots and the other white LED lights show other spots. The product feels very lightweight and cheap when you pick it up and the light switch seems like it might break with repeated use. One would expect something a little more substantial considering the price. But I have to admit it works and I'm glad I own it. I can't imagine cleaning my sensor without this product. I wish the company would pick up the phone when I call them. They seem to have several products available with only minor differences and I was hoping to talk to a customer service rep to clarify some of these differences. Their website looks very dated. Considering the price of their products I would expect more but so far their products work well. I also own the Arctic Butterfly made by the same company.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from See the dust I bought this to see if my sensor needed cleaning. I done the sky test but I wanted to see if I needed to clean my sensor. You can see the dust with this to see if you cleaned it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found Dust Used it to help clean the sensor.� The red light would show more dust, but at times the white led were better for cleaning to apply light into the sensor and mirror box.� The loupe was larger than the opening for the lens, but when left above the light and magnification was great and in focus for use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes it easy to see the sensor spots I find it easier to clean the sensor with the help of this light. One quirk is that it's annoying to remove the two round batteries when they're in the compartment.
