Clean it upPress 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:
- Uses no Chemical or Liquids
- Has no Brushes to Clean
- Uses no Aerosols
- Has One Size for all Sensors
- Travel Friendly
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.
