I have a Delkin sensor cleaning kit that I used successfully for years with my 20D. It includes a blower, sensor scope, solution, and swabs. I no longer own my 20D, but the kit worked fine with my 1D Mark III once I got the swabs for the 1.3 size sensor. I bought those at Rockbrook Camera in Omaha, NE when I lived there. I'm in Boise, ID how, and the local camera shops don't have those swabs. I even called around to shops in Salt Lake, but no one had them. That's frustrating because time is of the essence. I've looked around online and have found these:
However, they're not Delkins. Will they still work? Or perhaps I should consider the Sensorklear Lenspen?
That appears to have gotten a bad review by the person on that link on Amazon, but others here have said they got good results. I hear its easier than the Delkin system. With the Delkin swabs I rarely get it right on the first try. It usually takes a few attempts, but I can always check it with the sensor scope or take an out of focus narrow aperture photo of a plain white screen and see the dust.
The local camera store wants $105 to do a cleaning. @#% that! It would be a lot less to order the swabs with expedited shipping.
Anyway, will those swabs work or do I need to keep looking till I find the Delkin ones? Or forget that and go with the Sensorklear Lenspen?
