All serious photographers need to keep their cameras at peak efficiency to deliver peak performance, and a fleck of dust on the sensor can ruin a great shot. Now, LensPen makes it easy and practical to solve that problem with their SensorKlear Loupe Kit.

Used on the International Space Station, this kit has proved its effectiveness and reliability under the most demanding conditions.

Positioned on the camera body, as you would a lens, the Loupe provides perfectly directed light to pinpoint the problem. Once dust is detected, the included blower is used to remove the dry dust. But for tackling the dreaded problem of sticky dust, that is when the SensorKlear Loupe Kit really makes a difference. Using the access window at the side of the Loupe, insert the angled tip of the new SensorKlear II™ pen to safely and easily target and remove the sticky dust. Only the LensPen SensorKlear Loupe has the access window to allow the user to see and clean at the same time – a quantum leap forward in the world of DSLR sensor cleaning.

SensorKlear Loupe Kit from LensPen is a “must-have” for your digital SLR – a necessity, not an accessory. Ask for a demonstration next time you visit your favorite camera shop.
