SensorKlear sensor cleaning tool

At the risk of stating a heated debate about DSLR sensor cleaning methods , I've recently heard a good report about the SensorKlear from someone who made the mistake of using canned air on a 5D sensor and ended up with lots of droplets from the propellant, as well as the dust. Apparently the SensorKlear did a pretty good clean-up job.

The SensorKlear is made by LensPen and follows the same principles as their lens cleaning tools. There's a brush at one end for flicking dust off the focusing screen etc (but not for use on the sensor) and a pad at the other end which is similar to the pad on the standard LensPen except that it's triangular for getting into corners. There's a video on the LensPen website extolling its virtues.

I haven't tried it but it sounds reasonable. The pad is reckoned to last for 50+ applications, and at 3.99 from 7dayshop it's a darn sight cheaper than most other sensor cleaning gizmos.

If anyone has experience of it, please let us know.

Darn ... spent 35 about a year ago on cleaning kit, as D70 needed it. Changed to D200 & never had a problem with dust since Thus a cleaning kit sits there unused

Re: SensorKlear sensor cleaning tool

It be worth giving that a go at that price, i used a sensor cleaning kit a few times from Nikon2you cant mind the name of it off hand, but it does a great job.
