Photographic Solutions PE2C overview

  • 1Description

Designed for cleaning CCD, CMOS, and other delicate optical and imaging surfaces, the Type 2 Sensor Swab Plus from Photographic Solutions is specifically designed for image sensors measuring 17mm high, such as DX or APS-C sensors. The Plus version of the original Sensor Swab comes pre-moistened with Eclipse Optical Cleaning Fluid for greater convenience when traveling and to alleviate a separate process when cleaning your sensor. This cleaning fluid is specifically designed to rid the image sensor of dust or other particles that affect image quality.

Each of the 4 swabs in this bundle are individually packaged to ensure purity, are designed for one-time use, and feature a long handle for easy access to difficult-to-reach areas.

Type 2-sized swabs measure 17mm wide and are well-suited for cameras featuring DX or APS-C image sensors, such as the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, 70D, Nikon D7100, and D5300, among others.

Photographic Solutions PE2C reviews

Sensor Swab Plus (Type 2, 4-Pack) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 232.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right tool for teh right job I was skeptical at first for cleaning the sensor myself but after watching a few tutorials for using Photographic Solutions swabs I decided to do it. The task is very simple. The DSL sensor air blowers helped to some degree, but did not clean the sensor completely.... and that is where the swabs showed their power. The key step for me was to do the cleaning motion with one continuous motions while keeping constant pressure on the swab. Initially I stopped in the middle and that left some streaks. On the next try I did it with one continuous motion and that did it - My sensor was clean. I will definitely keep a pack of swabs around me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I had never cleaned the sensor on my Rebel T3i. I began to notice dark spots on some of my pictures. I realized I was seeing dust spots on the sensor when I shot with small apertures. I thought I could clean the sensor like I clean my lens. (breath on it a wipe with a soft cloth) That was a huge mistake. I created water spots on the sensor. I thought I would have to buy a new camera. As a last resort I tried the sensor swab with eclipse. I had to use four swabs but my sensor is like new. I also used a squeeze blower to remove excess dust. I think a blower will remove dust on the sensor but use the swab and eclipse for hard to remove spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT I was unsure if this product would work as easy and well as was advertised on the manufacture's web site. I gave it a try anyway and WOW what a good job it does. I experimented on my older DSLR (on the angle that if I messed up, I would not be messing up my main camera.) It was as easy to use as advertised. I did NOT find any of the swabs dry, as many had commented about. I did have to use 2 swabs on that first camera (it was VERY dirty) but it's crystal clean now. Just take your time, follow the directions, (and take a deep, relaxing breath before you start). Big thumbs up on this one. Will be purchasing this product again for sure !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy! It deserve a 0 rating Extremely unhappy, I have used the eclipse solution many times in my two bodies, and I am not sure what chemical they are using but is not the same stuff. After cleaning', and I am using cleaning very loosely, the liquid on the swabs never evaporated neither on the sensor. I threw away $ bucks, I got two packs, I used 4 from the first pack, the second pack went unopened to the trash.BTW, I am pretty good doing this that type of task, feel very comfortable taking equipment apart and then them putting together, is part of my everyday work.Do not buy this product, it does not work or they have a poor quality control.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from There's a better choice... I ordered these pre-moistened swabs in a four-pack because that was less expensive than ordering a dry box of 12 plus a bottle of cleaning fluid. I think the swabs I received were TOO moist. I left my sensor messier than when I started. Still convinced that I could succeed at cleaning my own sensor, I bought the 12-pack of dry swabs plus the fluid, and by using only one to two drops of solution on the edge of the swab, I ended up with a clean sensor. I also found that it helped to blow off the dry swabs before moistening them. Otherwise they can leave bits of lint on the sensor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans Sensor As Advertised I found the Sensor Swab Type 2 to be the best cleaner for my D300 sensor. The product works as advertised. The prepackaged swab is just the right size for the sensor. The swab is very effective. My sensor got dirty in the field, and a couple of passes with the Sensor Swab Plus was all that was needed correct the situation. When using the Sensor Swab Plus Type 2, be very careful not to let the moist swab touch areas other than the sensor. A contaminated swab will add more dirt to the sensor and possibly scratch the surface of the hot filter. Do not do this yourself if you have any doubts about your ability to clean a sensor!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works very well! I've been using the sensor swab since I 1st got a DSLR 10yrs ago. The new version of the sensor swab works a lot better than the old version 1. Also, the ready to use package is great for travel. From experience, using the old version 1, I have to waste about 34 swab before I can get it perfect clean. With this version, I use 12 swab and I got it perfect clean. To save money, usually I use the same swab twice, after swiping the 1st pass, I detach the cloth from the swab and reverse the cloth and attach it back to the swab then you can swipe a 2nd time if the 1st swipe cannot clean every spot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THESE REALLY SHINED MY SENSOR ... The sensor swabs were wrapped in a beautiful bubble wrap which was secured neatly with one strip of clear adhesive material. When I removed the bubble wrap, I was overcome with emotion. I had anticipated this moment for 3 agonizing days. It was now time to swab my sensor. There I sat, alone in solitude, ready to swab my sensor. I carefully opened the packaging and removed the first of 3 sensor swabs. My hands began to tremble as I held my swab, admiring it for its perfect size and shape. As I grasped my swab, my body became tense and it seemed like everything else in the world just disappeared. I was filled with satisfying pleasure as I began to slowly and gently pass my swab across the delicate sensor. I began to swab faster and faster as my heartbeat raced. My swab was now fully extended inside the the body of my Canon 20D. Finally, my hand began to spasm just as my sensor shined gleamed with perfectly un-refracted beams of beautiful light. I gently removed my swabs from the camera with total satisfaction.
