The EZ Sensor Cleaning Kit PLUS with Smear Away, 5 Green 1.3x Vswabs and Sensor Brush from Visible Dust contains a 1.15ml bottle of Smear Away liquid cleaner, 5 green 1.3x Vswabs and one sensor brush. Smear Away is designed to clean the hardest lubricant or oil stains. It removes the smear on the first swipe and has strong anti-fog and anti-static capabilities. An anti-scratch component prevents contaminants from scratching the sensor while cleaning. This very strong liquid cleaner removes pollen and the toughest sensor stains, it is non-flammable and non-alcoholic.

The Vswabs V-shape design allows for ease of maneuverability within the camera chamber and corner to corner sensor cleaning. Its multi-fabric design provides best results for oil and smear removal and its soft texture is safe on coated sensors. The 1.3x Vswab is compatible with sensors up to 20mm. The Sensor Brush wipes away light dust from the sensor and with Super Charged Fibers (SCF) draws the dust away from the sensor and onto the bristles.

Smear Away

  • Removes smear on first swipe
  • Very strong lubricant and oil remover for the toughest stains
  • Anti-scratch component prevents contaminants from scratching the sensor while cleaning
  • Non-flammable and non-alcoholic

Vswabs

  • V-shape design allows for ease of maneuverability within the camera chamber
  • V-shape design reaches the corners of sensors
  • Multi-fabric design provides best results for oil and smear removal
  • Multi-fabric texture is safe on coated sensors

Sensor Brush

  • Super Charged Fibers (SCF) draws the dust away from the sensor and onto the bristles.

Cautionary Notes

  • The VisibleDust sensor cleaning solutions and swabs are calibrated to work together to produce optimal and safe results. Please do not use alternative solutions with this swab. A simple grain of quartz which is found in cheaper solutions is enough to produce an expensive scratch on the low pass filter. These solutions are manufactured to the highest standard of quality that is practiced in pharmaceutical industries.

 

  • VisibleDust solutions are calibrated for normal evaporative rates:
    To keep the swab moist at all time to reduce the risk of scratches
    To increase the cleaning power, less swabbing more economical
    To reduce friction by being moist all times during swabbing

     

  • The potential risk of fast evaporative solutions used as sensor cleaning is the following:
    An increase in the risk of damage and stress to sensor coating by using premature dry swab
    A great reduction in cleaning power by shortening the contact time between contaminants and solution due to the increased evaporation rate of the solution
    An increase in friction by using a premature drying swab, resulting in static charge build up leading to an even greater dust accumulation on the sensor

     

  • These cleaning liquids are intended to be placed on the swab first, so the concern for liquid seeping through the sensor is not valid or accurate. On the other hand, the disadvantages of a generic brand for fast evaporative liquid used for sensor cleaning may in fact cause damage to the sensor by requiring repeat swabbing and is not recommended.

    I used these to clean the sensor on my Panasonic GH5. It took a couple of swabs to truly get it clean but it's perfect now. I am keeping them on hand in case this happens again in the field.

    Works as advertised

    Love the pre-wrapped and correctly sized swabs. Operation was absurdly simple. Spot was removed from my sensor using just one swab. How could I possibly complain? I use a blower regularly to keep sensor and box clean. I use the brush when there is lint or dust the blower won't remove. I only wet clean as needed for oil, etc.

    Worked even when camera shop didn't think it would!

    I had purchased a sensor cleaning kit from a different company in order to remove two saliva deposits on my Sony a7s sensor. The other kit did nothing. At all. I brought the camera in to my local camera store, where they will do a sensor cleaning for about $45, and the rep said they could try to clean it, but they wouldn't guarantee that it would work, and he actually sounded skeptical that their tech could clean it. I would also have been without my camera for about a week, which was unacceptable for me, since I had a wedding in three days. I had heard great things about the Visible Dust products, so I hopped on here, purchased the kit with the Smear Away solution (of which you only get a tiny amount, but it's enough for a few cleanings), and got it in two days. Man, oh man, was I nervous that even this wouldn't work, but wouldn't you know it, the first pass cleaned it up perfectly! The wands are easy to use and seem gentler than the other kit I got, and as I said, I didn't even have to do a second pass to get the sensor clean.Very easy to use and very effective. I would absolutely recommend this to others. I don't know if the link will make it through, but here is me actually using the product to clean the aforementioned sensor (remove the spaces):https: // vimeo. com /155856812
