There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was uncomfortable to clean the sensor but after doing some reading I learned that the sensor as a protective coating and if you read the instructions for these products it's OK to clean the CMOS chip. You must read the information and do everything suggested. If you put the swab down on a table it's "dirty" and cannot be used. You should not use any other cleaner than those recommended. You must clean the mirror box and outside of the camera before working with the sensor. If you have dust in the mirror box, it's just going to get into the camera...
This swab is the right size for my Canon EOS 5D Mark II. It took a couple wipes to get all the dust off the sensor, but it left the CMOS chip perfectly clean, and solved my problem of dust on the sensor. It took a few tries to get everything. I just cleaned, made a couple exposures at f/45, checked them, re-cleaned, until it was done.
There are some dumb examples of cleaning on the web - for example there's this one guy that is in a desert, opening his camera and cleaning it from the back of his truck... That did not impress me - I'd rather be in a closed environment with no dust floating around. Another guy used the swab to scour the sensor - he literally rubbed dozens of times - that did not seem like a good idea either...
This swab must be used with some form of cleaner - I used Eclipse. This cleaner evaporates very fast and does a good job of cleaning.
My experience with them, and the cleaning fluid that I purchased, was excellent. It sure beats sending your camera off to the manufacture for two weeks or more to have your sensor cleaned.
Just FYI, cleaning my sensor took all of 15 minutes from start to finish and took care of an abundance of dust bunnies and other grime stuck to my sensor UV filter...the glass filter that covers the sensor in most cameras. I did have to use 3 swabs, but my sensor was very dirty, and it was my first time. Even so, it cost less than $10 to clean the sensor, and I had the use of my camera immediately afterwards.
Was it worth it to me? Yes. Will I continue to use the swabs and cleaning fluid? Yes.
Hope this helps.
