Digital Camera Cleaning Kit 4aSensorWand – Review:
EXCELLENT VALUE FOR AN ESSENTIAL PART OF YOUR DSLR KIT!
Your first purchase after buying a DSLR should be a cleaning kit. The cost is relatively low and it might seem like an unnecessary component if the DSLR has anti-dust features but it is an essential part of your kit. I wish I had spent the small sum of money right after I brought my Pentax *ist DL rather than waiting in agony for a number of days for the cleaning kit to arrive (Micro-Tools did ship it very quickly).
The reason you should buy one of these kits is that every DSLR is going to eventually need to be cleaned. Even those that have anti-dust features still cannot completely eliminate dust on the sensor and in the sensor cavity. A kit like this is essential because the blower has a filter on the intake so that you do not blow more dust into the body. I tried using a can of compressed air but it did not work properly, the high temperature changes it creates can be dangerous, and bursts of fluid can come out and hit the sensor. Thankfully, even though I made the sensor much dirtier trying these alternative methods I was able to clean it back to 100% with this kit. The included instructions were precise and to the point. The kit has enough supplies to be used for hundreds of cleanings (remember, quite often all you’ll need to do is blow off the sensor with the rocket).
In short, this kit is an excellent value that includes everything you need to maintain your DSLR sensor. The pads and fluid also work well for cleaning lenses. This might sound like an over board review but it rescued me after trying alternative cleaning methods. For the price, you can’t go wrong and there is no need to risk damaging your sensor when a kit like this is easily within reach of every DSLR user.
