These VisibleDust DSLR Swabs - Green Series are specially tailored for cleaning the delicate sensor in DSLR Cameras with a 1.5-1.6x sensor size range (16mm).

The ultra thin MXD-100 multi fiber fabric of the Green Series swabs has a patented folding design to create a softer edge (compared to a hot sealing process), and is designed to be compatible with a wide range of VisibleDust solutions including VDust Formula, Sensor Clean, and Smear Away. Because the MXD-100 fabric of the green series swabs is compatible with Sensor Clean, you can take advantage of the anti-fog and dust repellent properties of this special cleaning solution.

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.

Perfectly sized for DSLR Cameras with a 1.5-1.6x sensor size (16mm).
Ultra thin MXD-100 multi fiber fabric is compatible with most Visible Dust cleaning solutions.
Patented mini-channel paddle provides even saturation while preventing pooling of cleaning solution.

    Swabs for 1.5-1.6x Sensor - Green Series (12-Pack) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed!!! When Nikon discontinued the D300 I decided that I had to purchase one (don't get me wrong, the D300s is nice, but I had no interest in the s). I ended up with a demo model from a local big box store (at least I got a discount), which is all fine and good except that a few parts were missing and someone had left a fingerprint smudge on the sensor! A FINGERPRINT!! ON THE SENSOR!!!! Grrrr. I used these swabs in conjunction with the Smear Away solution from the same company, and after a couple of swabbings I was ready to shoot! Worked like a charm, perfect fit for my sensor size, and EXACTLY what I needed to make my camera purchase worthwhile!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dust on the sensor I recently used the VisibleDust System. (Both the cleaning solution and the swabs) I have to admit I was a little nervous putting a swab with wet liquid on my sensor, but it was not that bad. When the product arrived, I read the directions twice and went about cleaning the sensor. The system worked well. I was able to remove the built up dust that I have not been able to remove with other products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job I was afraid to tackle cleaning my sensor myself, but when the last local camera store in my area shut down, I decided it was time to learn. After contacting B&H for recommended equipment, I ordered the green swabs, and went to work. It was really pretty easy, and the sensors on both of my Somy Alpha 700s are the cleanest they've been in sometime... Glad I tried it... And even though the swabs seemed fairly expensive, they really represent considerable savings over sending my cameras away for cleaning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked fine for Sony NEX-5N After several easy sensor cleaning with a Rocket blower, had to use LensPen SensorKlear. It did help, but eventually left some residue. Used Visible Dust swabs with VDust plus liquid this time, and 2 swabs were enough to get clean sensor. It is important to follow instructions: use 1 or 2 drops of liquid, wait few seconds, use each side of a swab only once.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I work with a clean sensor now Soon after buying my D300 I was getting seriously nasty spots that took a lot of post processing to clean up. I cleaned with the Artic Butterfly which workes pretty well, but I had some serious funk on the sensor. A couple swipes with the swabs and sensor cleaning solution and I'm spot free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective, Safe Cleaning I use these swabs in both my nearly-vintage D300 as well as my D7100, and they do the job admirably. These swabs, unlike the orange ones, are usable with all the sensor cleaning liquids produced by VisibleDust, and are save to use on the sensor itself of cameras such as the D7100. Helpful videos detailing cleaning are available online, and, while I'm not a fan of the price of these, willingly purchase them to preserve the photographic integrity of my gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly A nasty dust covered sensor (actually the Optical Low Pass Filter in front of the sensor) came clean with 4 swab passes using these swabs and VDust plus cleaning solution.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Sensor Swab on the market The Green Series swabs work very well no lint and wet cleaning is excellent, but Do Not use a swab more than once. I gave it 4 stars because the price is to high!
