I'M SURE IT' S A GOOD PRODUCT -- BUT --,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Digital SLR Camera Sensor Cleaning Pads with Fluid - All APS-C Size Sensors. As used by service centres in the UK (Camera)
I was disappointed to find my DSLR had dust on the sensor after 1 years careful use. But hey ho researched the subject and found I was amongst friends! I discovered a local company (if you call local 18 miles away) who will clean a sensor if you send your camera in the post. Not likely, too risky. However they also offer a while you wait sensor clean. I was tempted so I phoned them. While U wait is £42! and takes 30 minutes. That's an hourly rate of £84. Nice little earner - got me thinking!!
Being a thrifty sort of chap I chose this product instead because it uses a combination of lint free swabs and menthanol both recommended by many people. This kit was by far the cheapest and to all intents and purposes I found it works. One should not be afraid to have a go at cleaning a sensor. In my opinion the instructions were a little vague but with practice and by using up all but two of the swabs I managed to get most of the dust off the sensor. It can be quite stubborn to shift but I'm happy with the end result and would use this product again. Do not follow any advice that tells you to use a rocket blower inside the camera first. That actually made things worse. If you have more than a few spots of dust go straight to a wet clean like I did.
