Vswab™ from VisibleDust is a new innovative unique (patent pending) design of Sensor cleaning swabs.*12 swabs per pack- it fits full sensor size such as Nikon D3, 1dsMK III and 5D.
The advantages of the (patent pending) Vswab ™ over the former or square format swab comes from its unique letter "V" shape. This shape has several advantages over the square format swabs currently in the market. For example, the narrower edge of the V shaped swab minimizes the contact between the swab and the chamber wall. This ultimately eliminates the lint produced inside the camera eventually from falling on the sensor.
Another advantage of the V swab™ is a better maneuverability and easy swabbing while inside the chamber. Due to its triangular form The Vswab ™ (patent pending) applies equal pressure to the edge of the swab pad. This brings a more homogeneous swabbing motion and less streaking along the edges.
Visibledust sensor cleaning solutions and swabs are calibrated to work together to produce optimal and safe results. Please DO NOT USE alternative solutions with the VisibleDust swab. A simple grain of quartz which is found in cheaper solutions are enough to produce an expensive scratch on the low pass filter. VisibleDust solutions are manufactured to the highest standard of quality that is practiced in pharmaceutical industries.
Visibledust solutions are calibrated for NORMAL evaporative rates:
The potential risk of FAST evaporative solutions used as sensor cleaning are the following:
VisibleDust cleaning liquids are intended to be placed on the swab first, so the concern for liquid seeping through the sensor is not valid or accurate. On the other hand, the disadvantages of a generic brand or FAST evaporative liquid used for sensor cleaning may in fact may casue damage to the sensor by requiring repeat swabbing and is not recommended.
