Wink Sensor Cleaning Brush

Announced in this weeks AP;

Brushoff = £42.95 ... wow !

It is, apparently a new sensor cleaning brush claimed to be able to conduct electricity to counter the effect of the sensors electronic charge by acting as an earthing mechanism ? Thereby causing the dust to to be removed and the sensor discharged. And of course derived from something NASA !

It ought to do something for the price but I think I will wait for the reviews ?

Details available ... http://www.cameraclean.co.uk

Re-directs to Justblack ... has lots of other cleaning stuffs available too including Eclipse et al !

If it works and is 100% safe then tbh I think I would consider it even at that price.

Cleaning the sensor is the scariest thing I have done with it so far...

Like the last bit of the detailed decription.... If you mess the brush up clean the sensor with swab and pec pad

Direct link to product

All sounds a bit unlikely to me. I tried the charged brush (by blowing with canned air) and it works but leaves stuck bits behind. Copperhill is the most reliable.

What electronic charge? the camera is powered down when you clean (the glass in front of) the sensor. Eclipse fluid and pads are what I use, have done it 3 times now, wipe once one way, once the other and hey presto nice and clean.

I bought some Eclipse fluid and sensor swabs at Focus yesterday. They were giving a demo on the brush but imo it wasn't that good.
