VisibleDust 7421891 overview

  • 1Description

Visible Dust's Mini Quasar 7x Sensor Loupe Sensor Inspection Device is a high-quality pocket version of the Sensor Loupe technology used to reduce the damage to your digital camera sensor by excessive cleaning. This reduces costs associated with keeping your sensor clean. The Mini Quasar is made of the highest quality optical glass with fluorine coated surface for the sharpest image possible.

The Mini Quasar is equipped with 4 super bright LED lights positioned at angles to identify the smallest object on the sensor surface (usually impossible to see otherwise). Regular LED light penetrates different layers of filters to produce useless checkered-shape visual images of various filter depths without focusing on sensor surface itself. The Mini Quasar can eliminate this problem.

The Mini Quasar requires two (2) CR2032 lithium batteries (included), and comes with a soft, coated foam black box to protect the device.

Made from optical glass with fluorine-coated surface
Portable, flat shape
Four super bright LED lights positioned at angles to expose the smallest piece of dust on a camera sensor
Using this inspection device can reduce damage to a sensor by avoiding excessive cleaning

    Mini Quasar 7x Sensor Loupe Sensor Inspection Device is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Compact but... The loupe is compact, produces sufficient lights and manification for inspection but is hard to handle due to its thickness. The overall design and make does not feel as robust and well thought out for it's value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Huge Help For Cleaning I ordered this product to help with the cleaning of my Nikon D7100 sensor. Having completed that job for the first time, I can't imagine having done it without this loupe. I really like the shape. It is easy to hold and maneuver. I can't imagine the round loupes being easier to use than this one while trying to swab the sensor with your other hand. It also worked well for examining lenses during cleaning. The switch is somewhat flimsy, but should be fine if treated with care. This is why I gave it 4 stars (otherwise it would be a 5). The lens is very clear and sharp. This along with the LEDs, makes it easy to see the surface of the sensor as long as you view it at the correct angle. The case is nice and sturdy and lined with a custom cut layer of dense foam. It is much bigger than required to fit the loupe, which provides extra protection but makes it less convenient to store. Overall I am very satisfied with the product and would buy it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mini is great for travel emergencies Lighting and visibility of sensor dust is very good. This is a very useful tool, particularly for emergency sensor cleaning while traveling. The form factor is excellent for packing in a small pouch with swabs and cleaners. But the form factor cuts both ways. I own both the Quasar 7x and the Mini Quasar 7x. The Mini is not quite as easy to use as it does not sit as well on the camera's lens mount and it is not (for my eyes) in very good focus when placed in this position. The regular Quasar is in good focus just as it sits on the mount and fits very nicely over the Nikon D810 mount, reducing the likelihood of dust from floating in while cleaning. If one has to unwrap an additional swab, the camera would be open if you don't place the loupe over it. The Mini does not cover the mount well and does not sit securely. So, I am happy to have the regular Quasar for cleaning at home, but would carry the Mini when traveling. Durability appears OK, but the battery door does not seem robust. Care is in order when changing batteries. I have not changed the batteries in the regular Quasar yet, after perhaps 20 cleanings of several Nikons.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great It's great at allowing you to see contaminants on your sensor. The only complaint I have is that the case that it comes with isn't very good at keeping dust off the viewing glass.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Essential accessory for photographers This tool opened a totally new perspective on the most important part of the camera which is of course the sensor. To research its condition and cleanliness is absolutely necessary. It is especially important for those who are filming video with cameras that have a large sensor (35mm).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice visualization tool. This is a very nice illuminated loupe that allow excellent visualization of the camera sensor. It is very easy to change the angle to inspect all area of the sensor. It comes in a nice protective box that even allow the storage of the batteries when not in use.
