This Strange Vacuum Cleaner Lens Will Suck the Dust Right Off Your Sensor

Well this is… interesting. Most sensor cleaning methods involve either some sort of blower, a wet cleaner, or a stick with some sticky stuff on it. The product above takes a different approach: it packs a small vacuum cleaner into a Canon L lens lookalike shell.

We’re not certain of the safety or effectiveness of this method, but it’s definitely a novelty if nothing else. Put together by Japanese manufacturer Nisshin Seiko, the vacuum is only available in Canon mounts and sells for 3,500 Yen (or approximately $34 USD).

Well, we should say it would sell for that many dollars if it was available in the US. Alas, this is one strange product that you won’t be able to get your hands on in the US of A, at least for now.
