Of­ten the only dirt that ever reaches your sen­sor are a few specks of dust, mak­ing a full-on wet clean overkill. For a quick touch-up, the Speck­Grab­ber is ideal. This is sim­ply a plas­tic stick with a small 2mm-square soft pad on the end. It works like the Dust-Aid Plat­inum, but in­stead of press­ing the pad against a large por­tion of the sen­sor, you dab pre­cisely on each par­ti­cle to re­move it. Two clean­ing wipes are in­cluded, so you can en­sure the grab­ber is spot­less be­fore use, although Kinetron­ics main­tains it can be cleaned with soap and wa­ter.

We weren’t ex­pect­ing much for a de­vice so ba­sic and cheap, but the Speck­Grab­ber works well. Par­ti­cles stick ef­fec­tively to the clean­ing tip, and it doesn’t leave any residue on the sen­sor.

The Speck­Grab­ber pro­vides much bet­ter dust re­moval than a sim­i­larly-priced blower, just don’t ex­pect it to deal with more stub­born grime and stains.

Pros Small and cheap; Great at re­mov­ing in­di­vid­ual par­ti­cles

Cons Not suit­able for heavy­duty clean­ing; you’ll need a loupe

We say This handy tool per­forms bet­ter than its price sug­gests
