APS-C Sensor Cleaning Kit

If you change lenses outdoors, Meta recommends the Professional APS-C Sensor Cleaning Kit for cleaning her Sony Alpha 77 II. Combined use of swab with cleaner solution smoothly remove stubborn stains on sensor, with minimum friction and static buildup on sensor. Best result is achieved by applying a dry swab immediate after swab with cleaner solution. Special gel-like texture with active cleaning ingredients. This kit can also be used for high-grade lens cleaning. Purchase Additional Swabs.
