FireFly Lets You Safely and Easily Clean Dust Off of Your Sensor

firefly

Getting dust out of your camera body, and especially off of your sensor, can be a tricky process. It’s not that there aren’t plenty of options out there, it’s that most of them put your sensor and other sensitive pieces of your camera at risk. Even ye olde air blower isn’t entirely safe. The FireFly digital sensor cleaner, however, seems to be.

A bit on the expensive side, the $130 FireFly uses power from a nine volt battery to blow ionized air into your camera body. These ions will, in turn, neutralize any static charge that your camera may posses, allowing dust particles to fall away.

In case you’re worried that the air itself may have particles in it, FireFly also comes with a 20 micron filter attached to keep that from happening. And to add a bit of convenience and another incentive to spend big bucks on a cleaning tool, FireFly automatically shuts off after 15 seconds, allowing you to use it with one hand.

So, if you’re sick of removing dust particles in Photoshop, or you just happen to have $130 dollars you’re dying to spend on a useful photography accessory, head over to the FireFly website to order yours.
