Wet Cleaning Guide    

Compatible ONLY with VDust Plus™.

For the photographer that is using a digital back or medium format SLR such as Pentax 645 and Pentax 645Z. VisibleDust has designed the new Digital Back Sensor Cleaning Swab. Using the same technology used to fabricate our regular DHAP and MXD-100 sensor cleaning swabs, these swabs are custom designed to fit the large sensor of the Digital Back and Pentax series medium format SLR such as Pentax 645 and 645 Z. Patented

These Swabs are to fit
42-44 mm CCD sensor size,
Pentax 645 and Pentax 645 Z

Cautionary Note

Visibledust sensor cleaning solutions and swabs are calibrated to work together to produce optimal and safe results. Please DO NOT USE alternative solutions with our swab. A simple grain of quartz which is found in cheaper solutions are enough to produce an expensive scratch on the low pass filter. Our solutions are manufactured to the highest standard of quality that is practiced in pharmaceutical industries.

Visibledust solutions are calibrated for NORMAL evaporative rates:

  1. to keep the swab moist at all time to reduce the risk of scratch
  2. to increase the cleaning power, less swabbing more economical
  3. to reduce friction by being moist all time during swabbing

The potential risk of FAST evaporative solutions used as sensor cleaning are the following:

  1. an increase in the risk of damage and stress to sensor coating by using premature dry swab
  2. a great reduction in cleaning power by shortening the contact time between contaminants and solution due to the increased evaporation rate of the solution
  3. increase in friction by using a premature drying swab, resulting in static charge build up leading to an even greater dust accumulation on the sensor

Our cleaning liquids are intended to be placed on the swab first, so the concern for liquid seeping through the sensor is not valid or accurate. On the other hand, the disadvantages of a generic brand or FAST evaporative liquid used for sensor cleaning may in fact may casue damage to the sensor by requiring repeat swabbing and is not recommended.
