The Best Sensor Cleaning Kit – Dry
There are a huge variety of sensor cleaning kits on the market. We have used many of them over the years, and have come to the conclusion that no manufacturer has managed to produce a kit that really is the best in all it’s contents. So what makes the best sensor cleaning kit? We are in the advantageous situation of being sent samples to tryout and over the years have been able to select the best from a range of manufacturers and combine them. The best blower, the best sensor inspecting loupe and the best sensor cleaning materials. The best sensor cleaning kit for a dry clean are made up of the four items below which we use on a daily basis in our sensor cleaning service, all delivered in a neat case. This kit is for regular dry cleaning of your sensor to remove dust and loose material.
We also do wet sensor cleaning kits for a deep clean than will remove the more sticky contaminants.

If you are still feeling unsure of cleaning your own sensor we regularly run a How To Clean Your Sensor – Workshop which is both technical and practical. Half the course is given over to practise cleaning a sensor on a demo model.
Ezklean Sensor Inspecting Loupe – The Ezklean sensor loupe is one of the best loupes on the market, designed to identify even the smallest of dust particles and debris in high resolution.
JJC Professional Dust Free Air Blower – not only does this have a very strong puff, it also filtrates out particles to less than half the width of a human hair so you are not pushing particles into the sensor chamber. Use this first when cleaning your sensor.
Dust-Aid Platinum Sensor Cleaning Kit – We regard Dust-Aid Platinum to be the safest and most effective technique for removing loose dust from the sensor in DSLR’s. Use this after the blower to remove more stubborn artefacts from the sensor.
Dust-Aid Cleaning Strips – These cleaning strips are used to clean dust and fibres from the Dust-Aid Platinum silicone pad before it is used on the cameras’ sensor, it’s no good putting a dirty dabber on your sensor!
