Great Kit, and I use it a lot.

First, here's what's inside.

SMALL rocket blower - great little thing, tends to whistle through the red plastic tip though. so, it's not great in quiet places.

Retractable brush - great little thing, tends to shed hairs, but not terribly.

Cleaning Solution - i did notice it lifted some color off of a multicoated lens. oddly, it only did that on one lens, and only once. the lens looks fine, and still takes sharp pictures without any flare. jury's out, but i still use it w/o fear.

Cotton Swabs - never used em, but they look nice.

Microfiber cloth - nice full sized cloth. very soft, and great when buffing out the spots.

I bought this cleaning kit to help maintain my lenses and camera body. Actually, I was mainly drawn to this product because of the included Rocket Blower. The one included in the package (the smallest one Giottos offers) usually costs around $13 by itself BEFORE shipping. I believe Adorama and B&H do not offer free shipping for the blower alone. So, for me, this is a Rocket Blower and extras package for a price only $2-3 more than the blower itself WITHOUT shipping costs. A very good value, in my opinion.

On to the products, the Rocket Blower is the one I've used most. It is the smallest one offered by Giottos, the other two being 1 and 2 inches longer, I believe. The advantage of the larger Rocket Blowers is that they have an elongated shape, which allows them to fit in the palm entirely so that you can get a really good squeeze on them. The small one included in this package is more ball shaped, and with my larger hands, it feels very small in comparison. Sounds bad, but being so small is it advantage. I keep my camera gear in a Lowepro Slingshot A200, and this little guy fits in the upper storage area very well and doesn't take up too much room. I borrowed a friend's 6.5 inch Rocket Blower, and while it isn't much longer, that little bit of extra room it takes up is enough for me to appreciate the small one in this kit. Aside from the convenient shape, it works as advertised. The little inlet valve on the bottom really does prevent the blower from taking in dust, which is a huge enemy of camera bodies.

The included microfiber cloth works well for removing smudges on filters or a lens' front element. The cleaning solution and swabs work very well on front elements and viewfinders. There are 10 swabs included in the kit.

Giottos Rocket Blowers, which are available in three sizes, are, by virtue of their careful design and high quality, the best in the business. They have no real competition. I can't say that about the rest of the pieces in this kit. However, the kit currently sells for less here on Amazon than the small blower by itself, and it comes with a good brush and some other, fairly ordinary but necessary supplies, and because of that it's a great value and a complete no-brainer if you don't already have the blower.

Aside from the blower, which every photographer should have, the brush is the most important thing here. Any particles of dust not removed by the blower should be moved away gently with a soft brush, and only then, if necessary, should any cleaning liquid or tissue paper touch your lens.

The brush itself is a bit cheap-feeling, and mine fell apart, after which I glued it permanently back together - but it gets the important things right: the bristles are densely packed and very soft, and because they retract into the body, they will not fray over time.

Here's a cleaning tip I learned years ago and assumed everybody else already knew, but apparently it's no longer a matter of common knowledge: before you use the brush, blow air through it a few times, using the blower (in the direction of the bristles, so as not to fray them). This puts a small static charge on the bristles themselves, and after doing this they will lift dust off the lens very easily, without any real effort and without just moving them around on its surface.

Only after dust is blown and then brushed off the lens, and only if necessary, should you use a wet cleaner and cleaning tissue on the lens: cleaning is the single most common cause of lens damage.

I got it just today and used it for cleaning my lens. The solution might be useful, the blower is useful, the swabs can be useful with their pointed tips, but the so called "magic cloth" is anything but magic. It kept leaving lint on my lens.

You have a dSLR which means you will swap lenses. Yes you will, because even if you found the giga-zoom of your dreams, you will soon want to use primes. You'll see, this will happen for sure when you own a dSLR. However, this means that you will expose the sensor and dust may get into, patching your images with nasty markings that you will hate. Thus, starting from the sensor, you will need a cleaning kit. It is very important to have a cleaning kit also for your lenses.
This one here, the "Giottos Multi-Optical Cleaner Kit" it is quite handy because it includes the rocket air blower which basically is a pear-shaped rubber blower (with some legs that makes it look like a sputnik rocket) and a rubber blower IS THE ONLY INSTRUMENT YOU MUST USE to clean the sensor. Mark my words, you MUST NOT, by any means, use anything else because it is a huge risk of completely damaging your camera sensor.
The kit also include some items you might use for cleaning lenses: a good but perfectible cleaning solution, a lint-free cloth (that is very handy) some swabsticks and a huge retractible smooth brush that you might use for removal of larger debris. The price is unbeatable, and the kit is very useful. I used the kit for: cleaning the sensor (blower only), removing dust from my lenses (blower, brush, cleaning solution and the lint-free cloth), or removing dust from objects I photograph for different product photography setups. It is one of the best kits you may get for the money.
