5.0 out of 5 stars Great for DSLR sensor cleaning, August 12, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PEC-PAD Lint Free Wipes 4"x4" 100per/Pkg (Kitchen)
The sensors of my D70s and D40 have accumulated dirt spots. A rocket blaster could blow away only some of them. I also tried dust blower, only to leave water marks on the sensor. Fortunately, the water was on the glass in front of the sensor, not on the sensor itself. (When talking about sensor cleaning, we really mean cleaning the glass in front of the sensor.) After reading the reviews, I ordered these PEC-PAD wipes, a bottle of E2 solution, and a SensorWand. The result is great.

I initially cut open one side of the plastic wrap of the wipes and pulled a wipe at a time out of the package. Since they are tightly packed, the pulling generated lots of friction on the surface of the wipe and thus lots of lint. I then cut a bigger opening and the lint is no longer present. It took a few exercises to learn how to wipe well and how much force should be used. Each wipe is big enough that it can be re-wrapped several times.

A good cleaning should not introduce new spots to the sensor. But if you find lint and do not want to touch the sensor again, a rocket blaster will help remove the lint. There is a spot that I cannot remove after repeated wiping. It might be on the back of the glass and I have to live with it. I put these wipes, the E2 solution, the SensorWand, and the rocket blaster into a Ziploc bag to keep them away from dirt.

I ordered all the items from Micro-Tools, which will do combined shipping and reduce shipping cost. Micro-Tools even included a small bag of candies in the shipment.
