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.
Sensor Swabs, Green:
This ultra thin multi fiber fabric has a patented folding design to create a softer edge compared to a hot sealing process, yet designed to be compatible with a wide range of our solutions (VDust Formula, Sensor Clean, Smear Away).
The patented mini-channel, with contour, provides an even saturation of the paddles surface while preventing pooling and vertical flow at the edge. This reduces streaks associated with traditional flat surface paddles.
The mini-channels also provide the extra reservoir to absorb the excessive liquid and prolonging the moisture life of the swab during the cleaning process.

Great sensor cleaning product
I decided to buy this product when I noticed my Canon 50D had a very very dirty sensor. You could start noticing the dust spots at f/8, so it was time for a cleaning. The product is very easy to use but the instructions manual (if you could call it that way) it is not detailed at all, so you have to figure it out by yourself. You have to be careful when touching the sensor, but if you are confident enough to do it, I highly recommend this product. My sensor is now spotless :)

Kit came as advertised; I was hoping to remove a stubborn dust spot on my sensor and tried the product. It made matters worse, instead I ended up with multiple dust spots which I had to use another method to eliminate. No, I would not use this product again.
Works better than other products I've used. Simple, clean and residue free.
It is very easy to use on my Nikon D7100, the size is perfect and just take a moment to clean it up.
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.
