Perfect for the amateur
on 23 May 2011
I bought my first DSLR Camera (Olympus Pen E-PL1) in April and so I'm not completely familiar with it yet, but I am still very careful as I am on a low budget. I finally bought a cleaning kit after noticing specs of dust and tiny scratch-like markings on my lens. I bought this kit, got it 2-3 days later, and used a youtube video to teach me how to clean the lens (I watched the one by kerrycgarrison). I had read reviews that the lens pen leaves black markings on paper, but the video explains that this is how the lens is cleaned so don't panic!
The blower has enough power to blow most of the dust specs off. Anything a little stickier needs the brush end of the lens pen, and any markings on the lens needs the actual marker end of the pen. The marker end can be removed to reveal a smaller sized one (one end is 10mm in diameter, the other 7mm). The scratch-like markings I had came off straight away and I was left with a flawless lens. I haven't used the cloth yet, as the youtube video says it should only be used when your cleaning kit is not with you or you're not in a suitable place to use it. I 100% recommend buying this product, and don't worry, the quality not as cheap as the price suggests!
