I was given the opportunity to review the Pentex Camera Cleaning Pen and I accepted. I’m an amateur photographer who has a lot to learn about taking pictures and maintaining my equipment, so I thought the pen would be a great place to start in learning how to clean my camera.
The pen arrived in a blue velvet pouch, which is perfect for keeping track of the pen. It’s the perfect size for carrying in your purse or camera bag. I removed the pen from the pouch and put it to use. It has a retractable brush, which is so soft. Have no fear of scratching your camera or lens. It does a great job in removing the dust from the lens and camera. I decided to use on my binoculars and phone as well.
You can see the pen in the picture, it has tools on both ends. The brush on one end and a carbon cleaning pad on the other. I keep my camera lens covered with a cap when not in use to minimize scratches and dust. I started with the brush. I dusted the camera all over and removed the cap to clean the lens. I was amazed at how dirty it was. I followed the lens brush cleaning with the carbon cleaning pad. My mouth fell open, the lens was glowing. It was smudge and dust free. I grabbed all of the lens for my camera and went to work. I cleaned the view finder and every nook and cranny on the camera.
Another thing that I like about the cleaning pen is that it does not require additional cleaning fluids. The carbon cleaning pad is patented, environment friendly, non-toxic, and alcohol and ammonia free!
I highly recommend this cleaning pen for both professional and amateurs photographers. This pen would make a great gift for photographers, Christmas, birthday or any time.
Note: I received the Pentex Camera Cleaning Pen in exchange for the review; however, all opinions are my own.
