"I have owned the FireFly for a couple of years now, after trying and using other products. Hands down, this is the best system I've seen for removing sensor dust! I love it."

NRD LLC, a world-class manufacturer of ionization technologies used for static elimination in both industrial and commercial products, announces the release of its latest version of their FireFly® Digital Sensor Cleaner(FireFly®), a revolutionary cleaning product for the sensor in digital SLR (or detachable lens) cameras used by professional and amateur photographers.
The FireFly, winner of the prestigious Innovative Digital Product award at the 2008 PMA Trade Show, has been re-engineered to be smaller, lighter, and more user friendly than the original version. The new FireFly features a timed “on-off” switch and a more convenient battery compartment. This portable equipment is so easy to use that photographers will be able operate the device for cleaning their equipment with one hand.
The FireFly’s Air Ionization technology eliminates the static charges that cause dust particles to cling to the camera’s sensor. The time and money saved on not having to re-touch photos or needing to send the camera out for a professional cleaning may pay for the FireFly after its first use.
The design of the FireFly is superior to other products on the market due to its innovative ionizing technology that eliminates both positive and negative charges on the internal components of the camera. Other cleaning options, such as brushes or liquid cleaners, are intended to come in contact with the sensor, which can actually void a manufacturer’s warranty and potentially damage the sensor. The FireFly avoids this problem because it is designed to provide a burst of ionized air without the device touching the delicate digital sensor. The FireFly includes a replaceable 20-micron in-line filter to ensure the ionized air stream is free of particulate or other contaminants.
Dust, dirt, and other particulate matter come from many sources and can become attached to interior surfaces of the camera body, mirror, and shutter. This particulate matter is attracted to the sensor and is held in place by electrostatic charges on the surface of the sensor. The FireFly, powered by a 9-volt battery, uses advanced ionizing technology to direct a burst of anti-static air onto the sensor. Once the sensor is static free, the non-fixed dirt and dust particles simply fall off the sensor and are flushed out of the camera body, eliminating the specs seen in developed photographs.
The FireFly is the most effective equipment on the market for cleaning digital sensors and has the least risk associated with the cleaning process.
