Hi Jim...Thanks, Glenn. I remembered you had recommended this product but couldn't find your post.
I'm at a loss to understand how the reviewer could have damaged his sensor since I've seen so many good reviews. Photography Life does report horror stories about the Chinese knockoffs, but the reviewer claimed his was an original from Germany.
I think I'll give it a try.
There is a pad with stickytape included. So far I have only used a couple of sheets with many left in the pad.Question: Dust transfers onto the gel. Then you put the dust from the gel onto a stickytape.
How easy is it and how cheap is it to buy more stickytape?
I do not want to: transfer the dust from gel to plain adhesive tape and simultaneously transfer adhesive from tape to gel
then transfer the adhesive (silicone oil comes to mind from silicone adhesives) to the sensor! Must use a good clean stickytape!
Thanks, Frits. I had heard that Leica used these but hadn't seen the video. Using these, I didn't think wet cleaning was required.Jim, I have been using these since a few years (since my Leica days). This video is where I saw it first (check at about 15'30").
I have been using them since on my Nikons and love it. After a wet clean there is often a speck or 2 left, which is where the stick comes in. Results in a perfectly spotless sensor.
As you can see in the Leica video, no reason to baby these. I really cannot see how you can damage a sensor with it.
As an aside, I have a LED sensor loupe that I use to catch the last little dust specks. Very useful.
I agree, wet cleaning is not required per se. Especially with the stick often this is all you need.Thanks, Frits. I had heard that Leica used these but hadn't seen the video. Using these, I didn't think wet cleaning was required.

I don't get pop-ups, AFAIK. I'm not sure what you're talking about, nor do I fully understand what you mean by filtering prime. Can you guys give some more information?I do filter prime Will, it's the pop ups that are not prime, check it out.
