Further to the recent concerns over using swabbing with eclipse solution on the EOS400D with its Indium Tin Oxide coated sensor, I contacted photographic solutions to ask them about their new E2 solution and also compatibility of the original solution with the Canon EOS400D.
EOS400D users may want to consider using the new solution instead of the original liquid, I will continue using my original eclipse solution only for my lenses and order the E2 should I ever need to swab my sensor again!
Response from Photo solutions.....
The E2 is a different formula the the Eclipse and is recommended by the makers of cameras with TI coated sensors. We have not found a problem using the Eclipse, but we do not know the long tern effects. Your camera does have a TI coated sensor. You may want to get a bottle of E2 to be safe.
Hope this helps,

I wanted to ask what the difference is between E2 and your normal solution, what is a tin oxide sensor and why is it different? Also does the Canon 400D have a tin oxide sensor, and if so will the normal solution cause problems?
