For a first time clean, we recommend our Introductory Kits
Just Introductory Cleaning Kit
This kit contains a blower to deal with loose dust, a sample pack of Photographic Solutions ultra-soft lens wipes, 6 Photographic Solutions Sensor Swabs and a bottle of Eclipse. A handy case is supplied to store the components, which is large enough to accommodate full refill packs.
The Just Sensor Multipack contains 5 Photographic Solutions Sensor Swabs, 10 Flexible Foam Swabs, a bottle of Eclipse and a sample pack of Photographic Solutions ultra-soft lens wipes.
Just Multipack Kit
In our opinion, Dust-Aid is the easiest to use and most effective product available for cleaning away loose dust from the sensor. You can read more about Dust-Aid here.
We have no hesitation in recommending Photographic Solutions Sensor Swabs and Eclipse cleaner. Sensor Swabs are clean room manufactured, supplied in individual sealed pouches and are warranted safe for use on sensors by Photographic Solutions. They have been used for cleaning Digital SLR sensors by photographers worldwide for over ten years. Sensor Swabs and Eclipse are approved by Kodak, Fuji, Leica and Sony. They are easy to use, and highly effective at removing stuck-on and greasy marks.
Sensor Swabs & Eclipse
The D-SLR brush is an effective solution to removing dust from the sensor surface. Supplied as a kit, with a blower to charge the brush, it is a low cost and easy to use solution to dust, but will not remove stubborn marks from the sensor.
D-SLR Brush Kit
The D-SLR Brush is available in 3 sizes to suit different sensors and the kit comes complete with some foam swabs to clean the mirror box.
I want an easy to carry, comprehensive travel kit containing all I need to keep my Digital SLR clean.
The Just Professional Cleaning Kit contains everything required to clean a modern DSLR. Packed into a handy storage case is a full box of Photographic Solutions Sensor Swabs, a full bottle of Eclipse cleaning solution, a pack of ultra-soft Pec*Pad lens cleaning wipes, a bulb blower, a Kinetronics SpeckGrabber and Anti-Static cleaning brush and an antistatic cleaning cloth
Just Professional Cleaning Kit
The lowest cost-per clean can be achieved by using a Dust-Aid Dust Wand Kit. The kit includes cleaning solution and enough wipes to build 50 cleaning swabs. This method produces an effective clean, albeit with the overhead of building your own swab for each clean. Users should note there is no warranty on sensor damage. Users of this method should take extra precautions to ensure that the materials are not contaminated while assembling each swab. Read more here
We produce a low-cost kit with full instructions that show how to build the swab and clean the sensor.
