NOTICE: We are recommending either ECLIPSE or AEROCLIPSE for the Sony a7ii and a7rii. Aeroclipse, to render it non-flammable, has considerably less methanol and is safe under all normal circumstances and proper technique. WARNING : Do not use ANY product on the translucent mirror of ANY Sony DSLT cameras. Any pressure from any cleaning product is likely to damage it.

ECLIPSE Optic Cleaning Fluid is the highest purity lens cleaner available. It dries as quickly as it can be applied, leaving absolutely no residue. That is why ECLIPSE, when used with SENSOR SWAB ULTRA, is the only recommended cleaner for CCD and CMOS sensor cleaning. When used with PEC*PAD photo wipes, AEROCLIPSE is also safe and ideal for lens and filter cleaning.

ECLIPSE and AEROCLIPSE are intended for all digital sensors and critical optics. When used with PEC*PAD photo wipes, it is possible to clean only the portion of the lens which is dirty, thus eliminating “hazy swirls”. For cleaning sensors, Sensor Swab ULTRA must be used – not PEC*PAD. To clean a lens or filter :

  • Simply dispense several drops of ECLIPSE onto a clean, folded PEC*PAD.
  • Wipe the surface until the dirty area has been covered.
  • Then slide the pad off the glass at an edge rather than lifting from the center of the surface.
  • Refold the pad to expose a clean side and re-wipe as necessary.
  • If streaks remain, use a clean pad and re-wipe as necessary.
  • Some experimentation may be required. Please note that other lens tissues may not work as well.

Directions for Digital Sensors cleaning with SENSOR SWAB ULTRA:

  • Blow off loose dust with a suitable blower or brush, such as our BrushOff
  • Dispense several drops onto a SENSOR SWAB ULTRA
  • With one side of the swab, firmly drag it across the sensor
  • Repeat in opposite direction using the clean side of the swab
  • Discard swab after use.
  • If necessary, use a new swab.

PEC*PADs are not recommended for cleaning sensors.

PEC*PADs are not made from the same materials that are used in SENSOR SWAB ULTRAS. SENSOR SWAB ULTRAS are manufactured and sealed in a clean and sterile environment; therefore, the swabs are the ultimate in purity.

Photographic Solutions does not approve the use of PEC*PADs on sensors; therefore, we will not warranty the sensor or any camera part from any damage caused by using non approved products.
