    Does what it's meant to do VERY WELL....

    I bought a Nikon camera with a couple of lenses a couple months back. With the few times I manage to use the camera I was able to get water drop spots from the elements on my lenses, along with specs of dust. Seeing how much I paid for the camera and lense I didn't want to just run my shirt through the front of my lense and risk scratching it, nor do I trust microfiber cleaning cloths. I went online and looked up a way to clean lenses and saw several pro photographers use this brand so I decided to give it a whirl. WOW!!! Easy to use and leaves the front and back glass of the lens like it was brand new. One side of the pen is a very soft brush to remove any lingering dust and the other side has a carbon base almost paste like compound that you rub around in circles on the glass until it literally wipes away any spots in the lense without leaving any streaks....... Pros: Easy to use Leaves the glass side of lenses amazingly clean Cheap Easy to store Cons: NONE

    Lens pens have always been a staple in my camera bag or clipped to the strap for the last ten years. When asked what to buy after buying your first camera, I tell people to buy one of these. The extendable brush comes in handy to brush off dust from a lens or eye piece. The dry cleaning compound is great for those small spots from accidentally touching a lens or just removing some light gunk. Keep in mind that this still won't replace liquid cleaners for seriously dirty lenses. This model is even better than earlier ones as it has two key additions. First, the cap over the cleaning end now screws on and off. I can't tell you how many I had ruined by losing the old slip-on cap. Second is a cap over the brush side that keeps the bristle tips clean. These two things may not sound like much, but remember you are rubbing these ends across your lens repeatedly. Keeping them as clean as possible help keep your lens protected too.

    After trying a different lens cleaning option and finding it to fail hard I started researching the Lenspen. As someone who has never used it, I really was worried about how it would work with my Camera gear. I am super picky with my camera and lenses so I wanted to make sure it would not damaging anything and that for the price it would do what it says. Wow was I surprised when I saw how well it worked. It removed grease smudges a whatever gunk that was on my lenses and screen. I was very impressed with the lenspen and how compact it is. I now carry it with me in my camera bag so I have it ready to go at all times.

    Cleans lenses and filters very well

    I've been using LensPens for many years. This UltraPro model is similar to the ones I've had before, but this model adds a cap for the retractable brush end to keep out dust. Also, the cap for the cleaner tip end screws on and off instead of just sliding. This may be a good change because it forces the carbon substance in the cap to turn in contact with the cleaner tip, but it takes a bit longer than just twisting the cap and popping it off like on other models. Use the brush first to remove dust particles, and then breathe on the lens to fog it. Then quickly use the cleaner tip in a spiraling motion from the center of the lens outward. That will often leave you with a very clean lens or filter.

    Good, basic camera lens brush

    A camera lens brush should not be used unnecessarily. A lens filter (e.g., UV or polarizing) should generally always be in place to protect the lens. But when you get dust on the filter what do you do? This is a basic lens brush, and I've found no essential difference between the most expensive ones and medium-priced bushes. This one is inexpensive, but after several uses on just-cleaned filters, it's clear that (unlike some cheap brushes) this one has no residue or grease or dirt that came with it out of the box. There's no reason to get anything more expensive than this brush, but mostly only because you should not be using a brush that often (and cleaning fluid even less often, by the way).

    Adds extra dust

    I went in to get a different pen and of course they where out of stock, So i got this one since it was the only one that they had. Got home and was excited to be ale to get all the smears off my lens...... all it seemed to do was move smears around the lens and leave a ton of dust on the lens.. Yes it was only 10$ but after selling enough of them the company will make its money and its not worth the 35 minute drive to return it so it went in the trash. Dont buy this it is a waste of money...use a blower and a soft brush to get the heavy stuff off ( sand small rocks) and then spray a little eye glass cleaner on wipe dry with a good quality eye glass lint free cloth.

    It works great! I was able to remove all dust from my lens using this lens cleaner. It's amazing how much dust keeps getting back on the DSLR lens immediately after I clean. The process I found that works best for me is to follow these steps: First Compressed Air Dust Lens Cap, then Air Blow Lens, the Brush lens, then Lens Pen - Small Circles, then Air Blow Lens, then Brush Lens, then Breath Fog / Lens Pen, then Air Blow lens, lastly Brush lens. It really helped to hold a light on the side of the lens surface while cleaning.Then do the same cleaning steps on the Lens Mount after setting the camera lens to its lowest f-number.

    Lenspen Remove All Oils from Lenses

    I've been using LensPen products for 3 years and they are the best option for removing smudges and oils from lenses and optical products. I liked the NLP-1CUP because it had a cap for the brush end. With lens cleaning products, minimizing the amount of dust and abrasives that touch a lens is vital. By including a cap on the brush, I can now throw this Lenspen into my bag without concern that any dust or other particulates will come in contact with either the brush or carbon end of my Lenspen.

    Works Great! I Have One For Every Camera Bag

    I love the Lenspen! I have one in each of my camera bags and I also highly recommend them to friends and family and those asking me for photography tips. The cleaning wipes and cleaning fluid that one can purchase for their lenses are great for a good, thorough cleaning, but they are not practical for quick cleanings on the go. The Lenspen is a great product for quick cleanings before and during photoshoots. Rather than using a shirt or a rag to wipe your lens when it gets some dust or an accidental fingerprint on it, the Lenspen can clean those up without risking a scratch to the front glass element of your lens.

    Does the Job

    I really like this lens cleaner as it is portable and lightweight, making it almost unnoticeable. Which can be a good thing as well as a bad thing if you know what I mean. But besides that, it does a very good job at cleaning the lense which is what it's meant to be used for. But I do not like how cheap it feels as it is made of all plastic. I don't mind that it is plastic but it feels as if it can snap whenever it wants to which I don't like. And sometimes it leaves a smudge on the lense even after following the instructions carefully.

    I've tried to use sprays, lint-free cloths, and even individually packaged lens cleaning wipes to clean lenses, but this LensPen seems to be one of the better options for removing smudges and dust. The brush end is very gentle and good for removing small particles of dust. If I accidentally touch my lens and smudge it, the other end of the LensPen has a felt-like tip to gently wipe away smudges. Unlike some of the other solutions I've tried, this tool rarely leaves behind dust particles, and even when it does, I can just use the brush some more to wipe the dust away. It makes cleaning my lenses very convenient!

    Purchased this mostly to help the viewing screen to remain clear 'n' clean on a series 6500 Sony camera. I Like the internal brush feature which I use to remove, when needed any small abrasive particles before using the well thought out cleaning pad. Also, I have used the featured brush to remove any harmful matter, both real and, imagined that I found to be present before changing between lenses. Have used the cleaning pad to spot clean the glass surfaces on in the main lenses and this product does work as advertised. Yes I would even recommend this pen to my wife

    Nice little cleaning pen

    I grabbed this one day after getting my first DSLR camera. It's a nice pen, has a brush that comes out when you slide the button on the side. The other side has a cap that comes off and covers a small cleaning pad you use to clean the lens. Be careful though, i'm sure it can easily scratch your lens if there is enough dirt or dust on it, just like any type of dry cloth you would use. It works well, and is a nice size that's easy to carry.

    Way easier than liquid cleaner and cloth

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    Before I had this product I would hardly clean my lens, and if I had to, I would use a cloth and a liquid lens cleaner. This compact pen is too easy to use, the soft bristles get rid of dust not only your lens but all over the outer body of the camera. The other side of the pen cleans the lens and LCD display very nicely without leaving any smudges. Switching to this pen has made me clean my camera way more often since it's so easy. If you get your camera really dirty with something I suggest cleaning it with a cloth and going over with this pen after.

    Nice, small and convenient so always easy to have with you on the go. Both the brush side and micro fiber side works great for the lens and lens filters. No need for cleaning solution. Got too close to my pup to take a close-up shot and his nose smudged my lens so I had to run to a local Best Buy and pick up one of these to clean the smudge and it worked perfectly. Quality looks better then the package deal ones sold at the store so that's also a reason I chose this one. Regular price was $9.99 but was on sale for $4.99 which made this a no-brainier.

    Dirty lenses drive me nuts. I was having trouble really cleaning away smudges, even with brand new microfiber cloths. Worse, the cloths were creating static, and no matter what I did, small dust particles were clinging to my camera lens. I was skeptical of this cleaner...I mean, how can a tiny cloth pad be better than a large microfiber cloth? But somehow it is. I don't even know how. It's like a little miracle cleaner for my camera. And being pen-shaped, it fits super easily in any bag I use to transport my camera.

    Works like a charm, removes caked-on grease

    Removes smudges, fingerprints, dust. Brush end first (to move away loose dust), then polishing end to remove oils / grease / dirt. Not that my lenses get that awfully dirty, but squeaky clean is always good. Doubles as a dirty pot and pan pre-scrubber. When not using for those expensive lenses, does double duty to scrape away burnt-on crud from cast-iron cookware. Then, back to the expensive camera. Or not, as you see fit. PS: always carry one with you. Unless the bear wants it, then leave it behind with him/her.

    compared to other brands,,, the cap on the buffrer end is screw on ,, but the brush is still just push on ,, and the better design is the screw on type cap .. but at least if you lose the brush cap ,, the brush still retracts to be protected .. got 2 of these on sale,, which is a better deal too .. these things being cheep ,, i have over a 1/2 doz of all types everywhere since i lose track of them often ..

    I like to take care of the stuff that I own. Especially when it costs a lot of money. This lens pen costs a fraction of what I paid for my lens and the best part is: I can use it to protect my investment and keep it in good, clean, working order. I've seen a couple different brands label theirs as "the official lens pen" with the holographic seal on the packaging, so I'm not sure what's going on there. I had a knock-off before I bought this one and the build quality on this lens pen is definitely noticeably better.
