Has anyone used Sensorscope system?


Sorry if this has been asked before, but a quick search came emtpy.
Has anyone here used the Sensorscope cleaning method? My K100DS has some specks that my Giotto rocket blower can not remove. Reading a lot about the topic I saw the Sensorscope system. I'm not really that sold on the scope itself. I know where the dust is. Would the refill (swabs and solution) be enough? Any special consideration on my K100DS sensor?

The Delkin system is quite good at cleaning your sensor. It's not perfect but no system is. I've used mine quite effectively and recommend it.

I would recommend the Delkin.
I think the scope is a great aide in the cleaning process, vacuum on the other hand, is prettymuch useless.

Cheers. Mike.

or rather, it doesn't really suck

I have this system and the lens is good, the swabs work well enough, but the fluid seems to leave smears behind, I have changed to eclipse fluid.
