VisibleDust sensor cleaning swabs and solutions are calibrated to work together to produce optimal and safe results. Please DO NOT USE alternative solutions with our swabs.
CMOS Clean™ is a sensor-cleaning solution that removes saliva stains and oil from the sensitive surface of a digital camera sensor. CMOS Clean™ is a proprietary solvent blend for cold wipe application used in sensor cleaning procedures.
Saliva stains are the most common reason of the so-called “unknown stains” especially on the sensor of mirrorless cameras since it is located close to the opening. Saliva can come to the sensor from regular coughing, talking and even breathing. It is highly recommended to wear a mask when your camera sensor is exposed.
Alcohol doesn’t effectively remove saliva and a variety other organic materials from the camera sensor surface which makes alcohol-based sensor cleaning liquids useless in many cases.
CMOS Clean™ is a powerful solution that was created as a highly effective remover of organic, saliva as well as oil stains.
Along with many other advantages, CMOS Clean™ is nontoxic, non-hazardous, and non-flammable which make it safe to ship by aircraft.
- Refer to your camera’s manual on how to expose the sensor.
- Brush the sensor surface with Arctic Butterfly® Sensor Brush®. Alternatively, use Zee Pro™ or Zeeion® anti-static bulb blower to remove dry contaminants.
- Add 3-4 drops of CMOS Clean™ on the fabric of MXD-100 Green or DHAP Orange Vswab™.
- Quickly proceed to clean the sensor. If you delay cleaning for more than 30 seconds, reapply CMOS Clean™.
- Using Vswab™, wipe across the sensor with gentle pressure once, in a single smooth motion. If it is necessary, turn Vswab over on the other side and repeat. Ensure you wipe in the same direction both times. Discard the swab after a single use.
- Close the cap of CMOS Clean™, screwing the cap back on tightly.
- Allow the sensor to dry out completely. If needed, use the Arctic Butterfly® Sensor Brush® for complete cleaning.
- Proceed with checking the image.
- Repeat if necessary.
Visibledust sensor cleaning solutions and swabs are calibrated to work together to produce optimal and safe results. Please DO NOT USE alternative solutions with our swab. A simple grain of quartz that is found in cheaper solutions are enough to produce an expensive scratch on the low pass filter. Our solutions are manufactured to the highest standard of quality that is practiced in pharmaceutical industries.
Visibledust solutions are calibrated for NORMAL evaporative rates:
- to keep the swab moist at all time to reduce the risk of scratch
- to increase the cleaning power, less swabbing more economical
- to reduce friction by being moist all time during swabbing
The potential risk of FAST evaporative solutions used as sensor cleaning are the following:
- an increase in the risk of damage and stress to sensor coating by using a premature dry swab
- a great reduction in cleaning power by shortening the contact time between contaminants and solution due to the increased evaporation rate of the solution
- increase in friction by using a premature drying swab, resulting in static charge build-up leading to an even greater dust accumulation on the sensor
Our 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 cause damage to the sensor by requiring repeat swabbing and is not recommended.
