Introducing new medium format VSwab for Leica S2.
Visibledust is proud to announce the introduction of new digital medium format swabs specially designated to fit Leica S2 medium format sensor size cameras. 12 swabs per pack
This medium format swabs are designated for sensor sizes ranging from 3o to 33 mm in width or vertical length of the sensor. Therefore, one has to ignore the horizontal length of the sensor as the swab moves from left to right or vice versa during the cleaning process.
Ultra MXD-100 swabs are very popular among DSLR users to clean the coated sensor surfaces to crystal clarity. We recommend using one of the solutions offered by Visibledust to achieve optimum results. For any question please contact our technical service at firstname.lastname@example.org
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:
to keep the swab moist at all time to reduce the risk of scratch
to increase the cleaning power, less swabbing more economical
to reduce friction by being moist all time during swabbing
The potential risk of FAST evaporative solutions used as sensor cleaning are the following:
an increase in the risk of damage and stress to sensor coating by using premature dry swab
a great reduction in cleaning power by shortening the contact time between contaminants and solution due to the increased evaporation rate of the solution
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.
