This thing works like a charm and is great and easy to store and carry... check it out! beats cleaners, cloths and lens papers!

no... its too hard for sensors... its got this little round thing on the end that looks like a flat round (think head of nail) rubber thing with some sort of material like maybe micro fiber and inside the cap is a pad with some kind of cleaner (black stuff) and it gets on the cleaner pad when you close it. the other end has a retractable brush. It would definetly mess up your sensor... but man it shines the hell out of a lens!!

They are the good ones, I searched Ritz for one and finaly after about 10 minutes of looking and almosty giveing up I found the last one... I realy didn't want to settle for the papers I had baught before Ross had showed us this... (Ross, lol. YOu keep hooking me on things for the cam and poor Aron is going to be broke!! Lol)

Yup that's the baby been using the same one since back when I bought my G3 so that must be at least 4 years ago. works great, I forgot where I got mine, might have been, dare I say it, Ritz camera. But Please NEVER on the sensor, I use a hand squeeze blower and that's it.

My understanding is that they do wear out after a while and its good to replace them. The reading I was doing on it kind of implied that not doing that could lead to lens damage, but I honestly didn't spend a lot of time trying to validate that statement.

I was thinking about that myself and I've been meaning to replace mine, the key word there is meaning to:D . I will say I don't use it that often, I still use the old fashioned lens cleaning tissues. I've also used with good luck the supe soft eyeglass cleaning cloths.
