Just Ltd - Dust-Aid
Press release:
Just Ltd, of Newbury, Berkshire UK have introduced a new Digital SLR Sensor Cleaning System from Dust-Aid.

Sooner or later, almost every user of a Digital Single lens Reflex Camera (DSLR) experiences the problems associated with dust on the imaging sensor. The removable lens of a DSLR allows dust to enter the camera, where it finds its way onto the sensor, causing annoying spots on the images. In many cases this requires extensive and time-consuming retouching to correct. Sensor dust is a well-known issue and there are numerous products on the market designed to tackle sensor cleaning.

Developed by Professional Digital Photographer, Ross Wordhouse, Dust Aid addresses many of the shortcomings present in existing sensor cleaning products. Specifically Dust-Aid is:

  • Safe
  • Effective
  • Easy-to-use
  • Uses no Chemical or Liquids
  • Has no Brushes to Clean
  • Uses no Aerosols
  • Has One Size for all Sensors
  • Travel Friendly
  • Compact

Many photographers use rubber bulb blowers to clean their sensors, while this is a quick and often effective technique, it wont remove all the dust from the camera, while occasionally a blower can actually blow more dust onto the sensor. The great feature of Dust-Aid is that it gently lifts the contamination off the sensor and out of the camera. And, unlike many swab and brush based products, nothing is rubbed along the sensor surface, eliminating the risk of scratching. There are no liquids to buy and no brushes to clean. Dust-Aid will not cause problems with airline security either. Considerable research went into the adhesive properties of Dust-Aid and it has been independently scientifically tested to ensure that it leaves no residue on the sensor surface. Finally, its small form factor makes it easy to fit inside the smallest of gadget bags, which means that now there's no excuse for a dirty sensor wherever the photographer is.

Dust-Aid is distributed in the UK by Just Limited. Just distributes a wide range of cleaning products for the imaging industry.

With a recommended retail price of £36.95 including VAT Dust-Aid is an inexpensive and essential tool for today’s digital SLR photographer.

Dust-Aid and the rest of the Just Product range can be seen at the Focus on Imaging Exhibition in Birmingham from February 25th to February 28th 2007. Booth E62

Got to ask yourself what it actually uses to lift the dirt. I've seen some other products like this which rely on a sticky surface to lift the dirt...It wont be going anywhere near my sensor!

"It wont be going anywhere near my sensor!"

No it won't - the dust is on a piece of glass in front of your sensor
