LensPen®
Ken Lassiter
"...I've been showing the (LensPen) to people on my workshops and other places I go and talking about it in seminars I do. People are very impressed when they see what the pen can do and ask where they can get it and I've been telling them most camera stores carry it. Just got back from Yellowstone and about 10 of us were standing around talking and I showed it to them and all of them (all pros) were going to get one when they got back home."

"I think LensPen is a great product. It works extremely well and I know it will never damage my valuable Leica lenses. I have a LensPen in each camera bag, one in my photo vest and another on the shelf in my camera cabinet. I use them all the time to keep my lenses sparkling. Thank you Parkside for a great product!"

"I am a strident supporter of the LensPen! I laughed at the sales rep who first brought in to our store. It seemed like just another hokey gadget and I ignored it on the shelf. At some point, one of our staff decided to take it to an old beater of a screw mount lens that we had just written off as a dust catcher.

The LensPen cleaned it right up to the point where it was once again a viable lens, and sold shortly after that. That was the point when I came to believe in your product. My personal inventory of LensPens varies from 1 to 5. It all depends when my son decides to return some of my equipment (including the various number of those pens!) They are the first cleaning tool I reach for, both to use in the store and to recommend to customers. I still haven't figured out how your cleaning compound works, but work it does. It definitely is a superior product."

" I've been a user of LensPen products since the first day I saw them in a camera store in Walnut Creek, California.  They are amazing.
I love my Lenspen.  The large size for me is the perfect size.  As a professional photographer, I shoot with some big glass like the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 Lens.  The large concave tip is perfect for cleaning those convex curves.  It hugs the class and gets it cleaner than any cloth/liquid combination.  It even gets my big 15mm f2.8 fisheye nice and clean.  The glass on it is nearly spherical and yet the Lenspen gets those edges that are difficult to get with a cloth.

By the way, let me tell you what really sold me on LensPen...
When the Canon 5D first came out, I bought one.  I was excited that I could get a digital SLR, full-frame, for such a great price.  A few months later, I noticed a large speck of dust on the sensor.  Someone suggested some removable 3M tape.  I tried it, and it left an nasty residue.  It picked up the dust, but now things were worse.

Figuring I may have really screwed up my $3300 camera, I thought I'd try Q-tips and other things since I wouldn't make it worse.  All my attempts just made things worse.

I then took my smallest lens pen and after a few swipes the sensor was clean.   It didn't reach the corners because of the round shape, but out of desperation, I carved it down to fit the corners.   I now carry a LensPen sensor cleaning pen in my bag. "

SensorKlear Loupe®
Michael Corral
" Words cannot describe the craven fear I have felt over the arduous task of cleaning my sensor on my four-month old Canon 5D. I spend a long time each night on Dpreview.com talking to other pros about digital photography. It was there that someone mentioned the SensorKlear and how great it was. So I bought one and tried it.
 
I had some oil residue from the sides of the sensor that I smeared on the sensor glass filter with the brush. I also had dust specks I could never get my sensor 100% clean with the brush or Rocket Blower.
Your SensorKlear worked so well with just one cleaning I was shocked! And with a second cleaning my sensor was 100% spotless!
 
I am blown away by how well your product works! I'm going to buy another one to keep with me at all times. It's extremely important is clean for every shot. Now, thanks to your product, I will never have to worry about it. The SensorKlear is easy and fun to use.
 
Your product is without a doubt the best product on the market for cleaning sensors on digital cameras. "
-Michael Corral, Professional Photographer Sherman Oaks, CA
Colin Jones
“ Overall, I was quite impressed with the results… In terms of easy of use, the SensorKlear II is a no-brainier and I’d definitely recommend this product to all but the most apprehensive or dust-spot-conscientious photographers… The fact that the product is: easy to use, doesn’t include any liquids, is portable and affordable makes it something I would recommend every photographer carry in their bag.

“The SensorKlear Loupe Kit comes from the same company that manufactures the LensPen– one of my favourite lens-cleaning tools…
As with anything, there is no one perfect solution to the challenge of maintaining a dust-free sensor.  For me, though, the quality of the tools, their ease of use, as well as their results, make this kit a great choice if you are ready to start cleaning your own sensor.” - Read More
