Giottos CL1310 reviews

CL1310 Retracting 2 Position Goats Hair Brush is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full, soft brush The brush is compact and easily transportable in a camera bag. Putting it in a small plastic bag might help but the ability to retract makes it possible to drop it in the bag with no worry about the bristles. Two positions allow one to use it either in a soft or somewhat stiffer mode. The major look-out must be to keep the axis of the handle as close to perpendicular to the surface being brushed as possible. Scratching a lens or patch of film with the unprotected handle mouth (minus one star) would be a bad thing. I have one for the camera bag (lenses) and another for the scanner (film).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sharp Metal Corners I own a smaller plastic brush from Giotto, the one that comes in a kit. Love it, use it all the time, compact plastic with soft round corners and edges. I wanted a couple more like that to keep in aux. bags so that I would always have one around. Very disappointed in these. Much larger but more importantly poorly made from an aluminum extrusion with very sharp corners. They could destroy a lens in a heartbeat. They were cheap enough that they are not worth the postage to return them but I sure would like to have two more of the original smaller plastic versions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have! I don't know why I didn't purchase this with my first lens way back in the day. I finally decided to just get one and added to my cart along with a higher quality microfiber cloth. I used it recently on my entire collection of lenses for their first real clean in 4 years and I was very impressed with how well this brush was. It was delicate while being very efficient. The brush itself collapses into the stick portion for easy transport and can be tucked away in your bag or backpack's smallest pocket. B&H always recommends this product and I can't believe it took so long for me to finally just get one. It's so cheap and your lenses deserve a good clean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Soft, densely packed bristles. But.... Nice and soft and densely packed bristles. Does a great job removing dust. But the case, being made of aluminum, does have sharp edges that could scratch your lens if it were to get in contact with it. Not that we're all not careful cleaning our lenses, but the possibility is there to do it. It is somewhat large and should be stored where it will not be able to scratch any of your equipment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not bother I rate this a zero ... Badly designed and cheaply made Has very sharp edges where the brush retracts that could potentially scratch your gear if not careful

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thumbs up. I have multiple brushes for my Canon 100-400mm lens, Zeiss Victory 10x56 binoculars, Zeiss Diascope 85mm and my laptop screen. I use it to brush off surface dust before applying cleaning fluid. The brush is soft and does not make scratches on delicate optics. It is pocket sized and the retraction system works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Brush The CL1310 Retracting 2 Position Goats Hair Brush works great. I especially like the retraction option. Now I know that the hairs will stay clean and protected while the brush is not in use. Because of this, I am certain that the brush will last longer than the standard brushes. I am very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied I'm very happy with the function of this brush. It is highly effective at sweeping away all particles off lenses. It is more effective than lens paper or micofiber cloths since those always seem to leave little specks behind. Good product!
