Len­sPen proudly as­serts that its clean­ing equip­ment is used by NASA on the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion. This kit in­cludes a range of gad­gets for per­form­ing a dry sen­sor clean. Iden­ti­fy­ing any dust is a cinch thank to the Sen­sorKlear Loupe with LED il­lu­mi­na­tion. Its fo­cus is ad­justable to cover dif­fer­ent sen­sor sizes and it rests se­curely on the lens mount. There’s also a very use­ful open­ing on the side so you can clean with the loupe in place.

But while you get a great view, clean­ing per­for­mance is hardly out of this world. The in­cluded Hur­ri­cane Blower will dis­lodge loose par­ti­cles, but sim­ply blast­ing air like this can re­sult in dust be­ing blown onto the sen­sor. A bet­ter tac­tic is to use the Sen­sorKlear II clean­ing pen. Its hinged tip en­sures a good con­tact with the sen­sor, though it doesn’t at­tract de­bris quite as ef­fec­tively as the Speck­Grab­ber or Dust-Aid Plat­inum tools.

Pros De­cent loupe pro­vides a good view for clean­ing Cons Blower isn’t that ef­fec­tive; won’t re­move oil or stains We say A rea­son­able kit for the money, but you can do bet­ter Over­all score
