VDust Plus Formula, with its multi ingredients formula, cleans the sensor from all kinds of contamination preventing sensor surface friction and static build up, resulting in crystal clear images. Its anti-friction ability provides a safer and smoother cleaning process reducing potential risk to the sensor.
Most alcoholic formulas such as Methanol are designed to remove oil from optical surfaces. However, they are unable to remove or dissolve protein contamination. At the same time they contribute to surface friction and static build up.
It is known that during the cleaning process water molecules act as lubricant on the sensor reducing the friction and static built up. Therefore, it is highly recommended to use VDust Plus Formula for its cleaning power and sensor protection.

Cleaned my sensor just fine. I was a little confused as to how much fluid to apply.

Worked well, and comes with easy to follow instructions.
It's a bit pricy, but it works. It's made in Canada. Product packaging looks more like dollar store quality than the price tag may suggest. The swab tip fits m4/3 size sensor pretty well, and can be used for APS-C or FX sensor. I used this to remove a tough stain on my EM5 sensor. The stain was gone after some gental massage, and the sensor looked as good as new. No mess, no fuss. The whole process took me less than 3 minutes.
It took two swabs to get my D800 sensor (filter in front) clean, but that's most probably because it was so filthy to begin with. Before starting it was smeared with an Exxon Valdez sized oil slick. I thought the camera needed a "Nikon return for CLA" treatment, but Visible Dust did the job. Don't be afraid, view a U-tube video or two first if you're unsure....
It is easy to use just follow the video from the web site. However I had to buy the smear removal too to get ride of the dirt. VDust is good for "the second run" to remove the liquid lines if you applied too much on the sensor. My sensor is clean now (it took me 4 runs to clean it).
I used to service my Canon 5D at Calumet and they were great, except it was a pain to drop the camera off on certain days for cleaning. I was scared to do it myself because obviously it's easy to damage the sensor, but not any more. It was exposed to beach, dirt (from backpacking), and just normal lens changing etc. I had 8 easily noticable spots. Since the 5d has no self cleaning feature I think this is the most effective solution. Directions are simple, wet swab with the included solution and wipe. Visable dust offers different solutions for your needs (dry to oily dirt?). I think this kit is perfect for a typical real life situation.
I was a little confused on what to do with the lid on the little liquid bottle but figured it out after a little bit. Once I got that one figured out, I was able to clean the sensor with the the camera set to Mirror Up mode. It is super easy to use and real clean. You just need to make sure to open up your camera in a calm room so wind is not causing more problem when you raise the mirror up.
I had just purchased a camera - not very old - and there was dust on the sensor. I was so relieved to see this product. I watched some YouTube videos and ordered two packages so I could clean another camera as well. It did a wonderful job. One thing I learned is that we're to turn our cameras off when changing lenses - it has something to do with magnetism that draws the dust particles to the sensor...So I really learned two things. I am very, very, very, happy with this product.
Took all 4 swabs but did a good job getting it clean.
Had new Nikon D7100 and was seeing spots on photos with clear blue skies. I was so scared this camera was going to have the oil spots like the Nikon D600. I tried the in camera "clean image sensor" several times to no avail. Went to Adorama and talked to them. They recommended this product and it cleared the spots. No more spots!
