VisibleDust SwabLight Kit
There isn’t much to this kit; just four swabs, a tiny 1.15ml phial of cleaning liquid, and the SwabLight. This tiny torch slots onto a swab and shines down, so wherever you clean, the light follows. The SwabLight’s grippy casing is much easier to hold than a spindly swab handle. A proper magnifying loupe would give a better view, and though VisibleDust sells a Quasar Plus Sensor Loupe, this isn’t cheap.
You can spec the kit with one of three formulations of cleaning solution, designed to shift water or oil-based stains, or a combination. We went for the multi-purpose fluid – VDust Plus – applied to super-soft Orange Vswabs that are available to suit full-frame or APS-C sensors. The result? A flawless clean with no streaks, no stains, and no dust left behind.
It’s a pity there are only enough swabs and fluid for four cleans, and a dozen extra swabs will set you back about £35/$35.
Pros Unrivalled performance; useful SwabLight illumination
Cons High price per clean; extras aren’t cheap; no loupe
We say It’s not perfect, but a stellar clean gives this kit the edge
