Here’s an elec­tric brush de­signed to at­tract dust away from your sen­sor via the won­ders of static charge.

The brush’s ul­tra-fine bris­tles are at­tached to a ro­tat­ing shaft driven by a pair of AAA bat­ter­ies in the han­dle. Ten sec­onds of spin­ning prior to clean­ing ejects dust from the brush, and, with the help of the fi­bres’ nano-coat­ing, gives the bris­tles a static charge. Then, with the brush sta­tion­ary again, you lightly drag it across your sen­sor to pick up any loose par­ti­cles.

A pair of LEDs light the way. This is im­por­tant be­cause you don’t want the bris­tles to come into con­tact with ar­eas sur­round­ing the sen­sor, due to the risk of de­bris or mir­ror lu­bri­cant get­ting dragged onto the sen­sor.

Loose dust is picked up pretty well, but the brush doesn’t hold on to par­ti­cles as re­li­ably as the Speck­Grab­ber, mak­ing the high price hard to jus­tify.

Pros Easy and fun to use; fairly ef­fec­tive for re­mov­ing dust Cons Pre­mium price, yet will only clean dry de­bris; no loupe We say A novel con­cept, but the high price is hard to jus­tify Over­all score
