Review - 15 Months and counting

It's been 15 months since I first started using the Sensor Klear and there have been a fair number of innovations on the market. The camera wars are heating up and many new bodies are incorporating ultrasonic cleaning capabilities.

Yet, camera sensors still require intermittent cleaning. Surprisingly, I'm still using my original Sensor Klear and it has shown no evidence of failure or complications.

What have I learned to date? The Sensor Klear continues to work reliably and safely. It will never clean the sensor completely and in most cases between 1-5 spots remain visible (depending on the body) after a typical cleaning. These are easily cloned out and appear to be either defects/gunk between the AA filter and the sensor or else are some really tough dirt.

The Sensor Klear also appears to be especially good on oil spots which plagued my Canon 30d. And finally, with continued use, the need for frequent cleanings seems to have diminished.

Overall, my satisfaction with the Sensor Klear continues. It remains the safest, easiest, airplane and eco-friendly method of cleaning camera sensors. Let me know your experiences...

Thanks for this thorough review. One thing I've been concerned about has been particles getting stuck to the SensorKlear and messing up the sensor filter. Your experience seems to indicate this isn't an issue, as long as you don't touch it to anything other than the AA filter.

Great review, thanks!

Just got a SensorKlear and the results were great. I was a little concerned to start with as I caught the cleaning end on my finger and it left a grey smudge. Went ahead with the cleaning anyway and it worked fantastically.

Any experience using the SensorKlear pen on the Panasonic or Olympus "supersonic wave filter," which is a thin membrane mounted above the sensor/aa filter?

Thanks for the review - I'm going to try it. Have you used the lenspen lighted loupe with the angled Lenspen?

I've used the lighted loupe with the new angled pen and it's much easier to get a clean sensor, even with my Panasonic G1 (where I have to hold the loupe an inch or so away from the camera in order to get the loupe to focus, or install an adapter). It's worth the money, in my opinion.

Hello! You probably don't maintain this blog anymore, but was hoping maybe you still check the comments. Was wondering if you have since tried the sensorklear ii with the angled tip and if you think this is a better version than the previous model. Any info/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

Hi,
My experience with this product was catastrophic. I bought the kit with the loupe and sensorklear II. I used the blower several times before using the pen, but there was some sticky dust...then I tryed to clean it with the pen without applying any force. Well, my D700's low-pass filter has been scratched!! The repair will cost 1.100,00 €, as a new camera.
I wrote to lenspen, they didn't even answer...poor product and poor support.
