SensorKlear

I bought three of these from 7dayshop a while ago when they were on special offer (now 5 each which is still not too bad) but hadn't tried it until today.

It's made by the same people as the LensPen and looks similar to the mini version of that except the pad is triangular so you can get into the corners. I used a Rocket blower first and then wiped the sensor with the SensorKlear pad in the same way that I'd clean a lens - a sort of circular motion starting in the middle and ending up going around the edges.

The sensor was very grubby, but the first attempt got rid of almost everything. The second go finished the job, so I'm quite impressed. It's a handy little tool to keep in the bag, and although it probably wouldn't remove very sticky dust, it does seem to work surprisingly well - and it's cheap!

Re: SensorKlear

I have just cleaned the sensors on the two cameras we own using the tried and tested method of PeckPads, spatula and alcohol. Both are spotless again now but its not a quick and easy process, certainly not one that I would want to carry out while out on a shoot. I will have a look at these as an alternative for just that use, thanks for the heads up and link

Re: SensorKlear

They're very similar to the LensPens. You can reuse them many times, but after a while you wonder if the pad may be getting worn or grubby, so you throw it away and get another one. I'd be happy to use it at least half a dozen times, but I think it's important to use the blower first to get rid of as much loose dust and grit as possible.

I've been using the LensPens for a couple of years and I like them - they're very handy and again quite cheap. Instead of throwing them away after a while, the brush is good for keyboards and screens.

C-Man - Have you used that 'sample' yet?

Re: SensorKlear

Fortunately I've not had need yet as I'm very carefull when and if I change lenses to keep the chance of dust to a minimum, and with the bad weather it hasn't been out much
