Ultra MXD-100 Sensor Cleaning Swabs™

'Wet' Cleaning Method
Discard swab wrapping. (suggest blowing off with bulb blower to remove any fibers that may have shed in transport) Apply cleaning liquid evenly across edge, taking precaution not to oversaturate the swab.
Insert swab width wise to the width of the sensor. Rotate once inside chamber. Contact sensor so that swab width is edge to edge of the height of sensor.
Wipe (gently, firmly) across width of sensor, edge to edge. Lift off sensor, rotate swab width to width of sensor and remove.

  1. Refer to your camera's manual on how to expose the sensor.
  2. Brush the sensor surface with Arctic Butterfly®, Sensor Brush or use VisbleDust hurricane blower ro remove any loose contaminants.
  3. Add 2 to 4 drops of VDust Plus, Sensor Clean or Smear Away to edge of swab head.
  4. Wait to allow for even saturation of the swab (can be calibrated from a few seconds to 30 seconds depending on environmental conditions). Do not allow the swab to dry out.
  5. Wipe across the sensor with gentle pressure. Discard the swab.
  6. Allow the sensor to dry completely.
  7. Release the camera shutter.
  8. Proceed with checking the image.
  9. Repeat if necessary.
  10. Highly recommend using the Arctic Butterfly® for a complete sensor cleaning.
