Worked like a champ!

Bought the Visible Dust EZ Sensor Cleaning Kit with 1 ml Smear Away Cleaner and 4 Ultra MXD-100 Green 1.6x Swabs to get rid of those pesky sensor dust spots. It only took one swipe of the swab to clean the sensor - I haven't seen any dust spots in my photos since. The product works as described.

Bought the Visible Dust EZ Sensor Cleaning Kit with 1 ml Smear Away Cleaner and 4 Ultra MXD-100 Green 1.6x Swabs to get rid of those pesky sensor dust spots. It only took one swipe of the swab to clean the sensor - I haven't seen any dust spots in my photos since. The product works as described. I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars as it seems pretty expensive for a simple disposable swab (albeit there are four in a pack) and since the swab was a snug fit when cleaning the sensor (I was apprehensive that the swab was too wide for the sensor and therefore would not move freely in the sensor compartment). But all in all it was a good purchase that I should have made sooner!

Made Things Worse...

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 well for m4/3 sensor

By

from MD  -  Photo Enthusiast

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.

Full frame must have

By

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....

Buy it together with smear away..

By

from Minneapolis, MN  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

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).

Quick and clean

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.

Great little kit for sensor cleaning.

By

from Wichita, KS  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

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.
