It's a NOT an accessory! It's a need!
Hi there guys, so this is my review of the Lenspen LP 1.
So as you all photographers out there there's no way you don't have this. It may be sold in different names for different company. The point is that this is an item that EVERY PHOTOGRAPHER NEEDS. It cleans the lens just perfectly and it's very compact also so it doesn't waste too much space in the camera bag. And i bought this item around Rp 60.000,- or so.
This is a camera lens cleaning kit in shape of a pen which is very great. The first end is a brush, a high quality ones in this product, they don't fell easily. I tried a couple of pulls on the brush but none of the strands fell. So i'm pretty sure it will last long. And at the other end is a microfiber like material mixed with carbon. This end is used to clean smudges on the lens. I used it on both lens (the object lens and the lens portion that focuses on the sensor). It's also a high quality material. The carbon doesn't run out as quickly, and if that the case and of you're feeling that the carbon end doesn't perform as well as you first bought it, try to put the cap on and twist it 1 or 2 times to regenerate the carbon and you're as good as new.
And make sure you don't have anything wet or sticky before using this lens cleaner or otherwise you would damage both the brush end and the carbon end and it will no longer performs. No matter how you clean the pen and you have to buy a new one for it.
The packaging of this product is very strong even i have trouble opening it. It has a sticker to ensure it's an original product and it was written in Bahasa. I found this pen sold in an English packaging but this doesn't concern me much as long as you buy this product from Bhinneka. I'm quite certain that they only sell original products.
The design is good. I don't expect any changes on the design. The plastic material used to build this pen is good. very sturdy for drops. The mechanical pull for the brush is smooth i experienced no trouble using it. And of course nothing is perfect for i found some round edges on the pen. BUT! it doesn't affect the cleaning performance AT ALL. It's a must have!
So this is the end of my review. Thank you for reading. And great great job for Bhinneka on delivering this product to my house. Excellent packaging. No damage is found on my packaging.
