Review Date: September 17, 2017 I can recommend this item: Yes | Price: $35.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: safe and effective
Cons: expensive

At almost $3 per swab it better be good. And it is. I've been using these things since the Nikon D3 and have never found any good reason to experiment with something else.

Learning to clean a sensor requires a bit of practice, but unless you're a knucklehead it's very difficult to actually cause any permanent damage with of these things. I'm not even sure it's possible. About the worst you can do is get too much cleaning solution on the sensor and leave a residue that requires another cleaning. I suppose it's possible to absolutely flood the sensor with cleaning solution and have it run underneath the cover filter, but you'd have to work at it.

In my part of the country, a box of 12 costs a bit less than one cleaning at the local camera shop. Where they'll probably use the same thing.

Combined with the highly recommended Eclipse cleaning solution these things are, in my personal and highly opinionated view, are the absolutely best available.
