 "Digi Survivor Kit" 2009-09-17
By Robert S. Wilson
The sensor swabs are great, and work as planned. There are some other clothes and fluid in the pouch that don't have instructions (I am assuming they are for a lens). I always use a microfiber cloth and it works great. Ideally I would like ot buy a pouch with just the swabs.

 "Not so scary" 2009-09-09
By Susan Heller (Texas, USA)
I think anyone who considers cleaning their own sensor probably has read up on all the scary things one can encounter. I bought this kit mainly as a sample to see if it was something I wish to continue to do as camera maintenance. My sensor was very dirty mainly in the upper corners which is of course where the sky would be in most photos. So, you take some shots at the blue sky as a baseline. You apply the liquid to the pad and swipe once over your sensor. I took another set of test images of the sky, realized I had definitely moved the dust, but made huge smears (rather dust globs) with it! So, I repeated the procedure, shot some more tests and found that the sensor was nearly all clean. I left about 3 specks of dust. I am not going to go crazy getting everything off, and I have been fine with the results. So, two swipes was enough to satisfy me.

I would recommend watching the video first that the company provides online. Then my only recommendation to the company would be to provide a cheap plastic or cardboard "sensor" to use for practice first. That is basically what I learned. It is easy enough to do, but it takes a "certain touch" to get it right. Mainly the right amount of pressure and the flow of the direction. I probably could have done the job with one swipe had I been experienced with the feel of it. But certainly don't think you are apt to hurt the sensor unless you are wildly aggressive with the swiping technique.

I bought this little kit mainly to keep all the supplies neatly together, when I run out I will buy more in bulk to refill it. Just makes it handier. If the instructions had been a little more detailed about the feel of the swipe, I would probably have given this product 5 stars. It is way more convenient to do it yourself in a few seconds than to send your camera off and hope to get it back in two weeks.

 "It Works" 2009-08-29
By Jelly Roll (Toledo, OH)
I made the mistake of using cannned air to clean my D200 sensor. Instead of a clean sensor, I ended up with a mess. I think the liquid in the can ended up on the sensor, leaving a nasty residue. DON'T DO THAT!!

My local camera shop said that the camera would have to go back to Nikon. I was leaving on vacation in a week and didn't want to leave without my camera. I went to the home page for the Digital Survival Kit and discovered that I could clean the D200 sensor with thier Eclipse solution.

I followed the enclosed instructions and ultimately used 3 swabs to clean the sensor. In between swabs, I photographed a white wall to see the results. It worked as advertised. I am a believer.

Different cameras and sensors use different solutions. Check the manufacturers web site before ordering.

 "Excellent Product" 2009-07-05
By Tomas Mendoza (DFW, TX USA)
It was definitively a good purchase, specially since I was able to clean my sensor myself instead of sending it to a service center. The only challenge was to figure out how to use the swab and had to use two swabs before figuring out the proper way to do it.

Once I figured out how to use them my sensor was clean as new.

From start to finish took me 1 to two hours but I got swabs left for later use so I'm still saving money

 "They are helpful but not magical" 2009-04-03
By Luving it (Seaside, CA USA)
Yes rec-pad leaves less hair behind than my good old a-dollar-a-bunch variety of cotton sticks. But it does still leave hairs behind, much to my dismay. The Eclipse viprates faster than my mix of alcohol and Windex (as suggested by a web source), and yet it also leaves traces behind like my cheaper variety, less trace but still... But since cleaning the sensor is such a painstaking endeavor, every little bit helps. My refurb Canon 5D got some stubborn dots on the sensor I just can't seem to get rid of. Finally I use the cotton stick with soaked Eclipse rubbing the spots back and forth forcefully several times did the trick. Then I have to deal with the traces left behind after the Eclipse dried up (in 15sec maybe). But those traces are far less nasty than the Windex mix. I used Windex/Alchohol mix successfully cleaned my two other cams for a couple of years but this Rec-Pad/Eclipse combo seem to work better with less hassle. For the price, it should be. I had my doubt when I saw the product promotion video on their website (one wipe and you are done) before I bought the thing. After using it, I think the video is just crap. It might have worked as advertized if the sensor got just one floating dust landed on the sensor a minute ago. That is not the kind of dust I got on my sensors and I usually need to clean my sensor like I do with my windows - you don't just do one swab, you rub it, and rub again, back and forth. Eventually the thing will be shining like new. But not before that. One swab and its done? Crap!

Bottom line - This product is helpful, but far less magical than they like to make you believe. Today's sensor design sucks, the requirement to clean it from time to time is worse, and the actually endeavor of doing it is the worst. But somebody's got to do it.

Here's the thing I found most useful for the job: household vaccum cleaner, luminated Sensor Loupe, Rec-Pad/Eclipse, cotton sticks (for tough spots), Giottos tripod with flex center column to hang the camera upside down with (so the dust falls down from the camera once cleaned rather than going back in). They work every time! But I am thinking, if I am out on the road without all these things to help me with, probably the next best thing would be the pre-moisturaized and sealed sensor swabs.
