VisibleDust 2351918-1 reviews

Smear Away Solution is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ineffective and expensive I purchased the visible dust swabs, smear away and sensor clean solutions to remove lubricant from my D800 sensor. I started with the smear away and succeeded in transmorming punctate lubricant dots to one consistent thick haze across the sensor. After using 9 sensor swabs with smear away, I then tried the sensor clean with my remaining 3 swabs from the box of 12 I purchased, and this did not have any effect. I then purchased a sensorswipe, quickstips and eclipse solution at a fraction of the cost and only after a few passes have a clean sensor and a camera back up and running again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Cleaned my 5D Mk II sensor with Visible Dust Sensor Clean and got a big smear right through the center of my sensor. A new swab and one wipe with Smear Away, and clean as a whistle. I must have picked up a bit of oil on my first swab from the mirror hinge. The best move I ever made was to switch to the Visible Dust cleaning system. I previously used Eclipse and Pec Pads, I found that with Pec Pads it would take up to 10 cleans to get all the dust off, now the Arctic Butterfly does the job 90% of the time and any stubborn dust is normally cleaned with one or two swipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work as intended. I ordered this solution to clean a smear on my sensor due to a contaminated sensor brush I used earlier. The solution itself wiped the smear from the sensor but left some traces behind. It is not bad since another swab from an unused side with Eclipse solution took care of that. I believe similar solutions offered by Visible Dust would work well in cleaning the traces as well. If you practice or clean sensors often enough (not that it is a good thing, but considering where I live is very dusty, it is inevitable). You will not spend too many swabs to clean a sensor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Removes Stuff the Others Can't I use this to clean stubborn junk off my sensor. When I first got my D7100 it had some oil/grease (I assume) on the sensor - right out of the box. It's 45-miles, one way, to the nearest photo store so... I cleaned it. I had nothing to lose but a few drops of this. It cleaned the sensor up, immediately and I had a camera to use within 20-minutes, rather than having to drive, exchange and drive back (minimum 3-hours)... this stuff gets stuff that VDust, and other sensor cleaners just plain can't get. I just wish there was more in the bottle for the $$$$.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! When Nikon discontinued the D300 I decided that I had to purchase one, and I ended up with a demo model from a local big box store. Unfortunately, it came with a couple of missing parts and a GIANT FINGERPRINT SMUDGE ON THE SENSOR! I know, right? Anyway, I used this solution in conjunction with the 1.5x/1.6x green swabs by the same company, and after a couple of swabbings my sensor was as good as new!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smears and dust are gone! This solution in combination with their green FX sensor swabs really did the trick. I know they sell a sensor cleaning solution, but a lot of times those don't get oil spots off of the sensor and this one gets dust and oil off to a streak free shine. I highly recommend using a bright light or a sensor loop that is lighted to see into the sensor area to get all of the dust. Also, blow your sensor off on all areas with a hand squeezed blower, not a compressed air can. Once the sensor is free of loose debris, apply 3-4 drops of this solution to your green Visible Dust sensor swab and make one pass from right to left or left to right, NOT BOTH! When I tried swiping right to left and then back again I actually left dust on the edge of the sensor. Use this product twice and then check again once it's dry for any more dust and simply blow it off. This product does not leave streak marks and works perfectly. I can't say enough good things about it. I own two D700's and I wouldn't use anything else on them. Sending your camera back for cleaning every month can be time consuming and unpractical and dry cleaning alone often times isn't enough to get the stubborn dust off the sensor. Buy it, don't look back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great on Nikon D3 I was having some difficulty getting my Nikon D3 sensor clean until I used this product. In one swipe, it was clean. Using the right size swab is very important also.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good cleaning sloution but expensive A great solution for cleaning stubbon water marks and minor grease on sensor but is way too costly in my opinion.
