I bought this, not really expecting great things from it as it was much cheaper than alternative sensor loupes. Having bought it and used it, I was pleasantly surprised at how effective it was. I was able to clearly see the mirror and sensor through the very good quality magnifying lens. The LED lights around the loupe are just right to be able to see inside the camera clearly without glare. For the home user, this is perfectly adequate for the task it's designed for. My sensor is cleaned and I can do it again and again for much lower cost than one professional cleaning service. Surprisingly it was a fairly simple process and this bit of kit was a tremendous help in achieving a satisfactory outcome. I'd recommend it to anyone who wishes to clean their camera sensor/mirror themselves.
I am fastidious in ensuring I don’t get dust onto my camera sensors. To the extent that I have 2 bodies with my most used lenses so that I don’t often have to change lenses. So you can imagine my horror to see marks on my photos which I assumed were from dust on my sensors as I keep the lenses cleaned. I couldn’t tell much until my MOVO arrived (quickly thank goodness). This is a nicely made item with the 2 batteries already fitted. One point to note is that it comes with almost unnoticeable plastic coverings on the front and rear elements which need to be removed for best viewing quality. I have Fuji X series cameras and the loupe fits nicely across the front and immediately I could see that there were no obvious marks on the sensor which would match to the horrible marks on my photos. Very strange. And then I checked the rear element of my lenses also using the MOVO and there I found finger marks which had caused the problem. Once cleaned everything was fine and the MOVO paid for itself by me NOT having to buy sensor cleaning materials. But a closer inspection with the MOVO showed there were a couple of tiny dust specks on the sensors which a delicate blow with a blower brush removed. So I can thoroughly recommend the MOVO for checking of sensors and lenses.
Brilliant product, instantly solved the problem with my son's camera which was printing blurs; he'd tried cleaning the lens without success and we were looking at sending it off to be professionally serviced, then did some research and decided to buy this along with a proper cleaning kit. Combined with reading online advice on cleaning lenses, sensors and mirrors, he now has a perfect picture and a solution to any future problems. Definitely worth investing in it!
Invaluable tool for DSLR owners . Being able to see where the dust or dirt is on your cameras mirror or sensor is paramount to the approach needed for cleaning . If you couple this with the correct swabs and cleaning fluid for your camera you will save yourself the expense of posting or taking your equipment to a Photographic shop or specialist cleaning service provided by the manufacturer . Highly recommended . Well made and professional type loupe -and the seller gives excellent service .
I have had a few stubborn dust particles in my camera and no matter how much I try I cant seem to get them. Using this loupe today I could see the dust bits very clearly and now have a dust free sensor...best piece of kit I have bought to add to my camera bag. Well worth the money !!!
A functional and helpful addition to my camera cleaning kit. You can see the sensor clearly with the six leds, every speck of dust clearly visible. Get one, and you cleaning swabs and solution, and you'll be spotless again!
An essential tool if you want to inspect the sensor of your MFT mirrorless camera. Just remove both of the plastic protectors from the top / bottom of the lens & you are ready to switch on & start cleaning your sensor.
