This little kit is a gem. It is exactly the same as the Copperhill method I have been using, but it is assembled in a nice, small zipper case that fits in a pocket on a camera bag. It gives you enough supplies to clean your sensor about 5 times.
If you want to buy bulk PEC pads, and bulk methyl alcohol, you can refill the kit over and over. For it's price though, it's not a bad once per year expense to just buy a new kit.
Very nice product.
I will say however, that it's very important to clean the rest of the camera (inside and out) before cleaning the sensor. Also make sure the space you are working on is clean. I did not do either of those and became extremely frustrated when dust and fibers from the camera's mirror/viewfinder section and my dirty work environment was getting on the sensor. I recommend using a lens cleaning cloth or a microfiber cloth of some kind to work on.
There are tons of websites and youtube videos out there with tutorials on cleaning your camera's sensor. Some better than others. Just google 'sensor cleaning' and add in the model of your camera. Lots of helpful websites came up for my Canon 30d.
"Send it to Canon!", "Never clean it yourself!"...
Huh? What's the big deal? I had unacceptable crap on the sensor, and didn't liek the idea of the dust delete feature, as I still would have covered up pixels. And the debris was pretty bad.
Took me like 60 seconds total!
Outstanding quality, and the cleaner was perfect for my 40D's APS-C sensor.
For starters, if you've read your manual and/or things online, you've no doubt noticed that image sensor cleaning is filled with dire warnings about ruining your camera. It seems that more is written about how awful you're going to screw up your camera than how to actually clean it. After reading all of these things, I was very nervous about cleaning my Nikon D5000. Afterall, it's my first DSLR and I've only had it a few months. I mostly shoot outdoors and have to frequently swap between my telezoom and macro lenses. So it's no wonder that my image sensor was full of dust. I cleaned my sensor according to the instructions (as well as you tube videos I watched on the topic). The process took less than a minute and worked like a charm. Seriously.
I bought the large rocket blower separately because I wanted to try that first before using the wet method. I gotta tell ya people. Even though everyone gushes about the rocket blower, I found it to be useless for a camera that has a built-in sensor cleaner. I have my D5000 set to clean at startup and shut down. If your built-in sensor can't shake the dust loose, chances are pretty good that the rocket blower isn't going to dislodge it either. I am just NOT impressed with the rocket blower at all. I did the auto-levels test in Photoshop to see all the dust spots. The before and after results using only the rocket blower were virtually the same. My advice is to not buy the more expensive version of this kit that comes with the blower. If your camera doesn't have a built-in sensor shake cleaner, then maybe.Read more ›
10x Pec Pad
1x Eclipse (0.5oz bottle)
1x Carrying bag
Pec Pads are normally sold in packs of 100 (10x the amount included here,) and Eclipse is normally sold in 2oz bottles (4x the amount included here.) For about the same price you'd be much better off building your own kit with far more cleaning product, unless you absolutely need this bag. Having said that, the bag does work nicely as a little self-contained cleaning kit to keep in your camera bag, and has plenty of space for you to add the larger Eclipse bottle or more Pec Pads later on to use as "refills." If you don't care about the bag, save yourself some money by buying the larger quantity cleaning products individually (more money to spend on lenses!)

Worked great for cleaning my sensor...! Really like having the pouch to keep all of these supplies together.Published 6 months ago by William M.
This kit is nice, and it does what it is intended to do ---- except it only comes with four swabs, which you will probably use up in the first few minutes. Thus only 3 stars. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Science Tech
