The LENSPEN- This is a must-have for any photographer, and at a cost of less than $10.00 USD, it’s in the stocking stuffer category. Keeping a lens clean is always a priority. However, sometimes it’s inconvenient to pull out lens tissue and a liquid cleaner. Come on, admit it, who among us hasn’t hesitantly cleaned our lens with our shirt? The Lenspen is a fantastic tool. It’s small and compact; it takes up no room in the camera bag. On one end of it, there is a retractable brush to remove the big chunks on the lens, or, dust the crevices of your camera body. The other end is a microfiber carbon tip. It cleans the lens the same way as a lens tissue: in a circular motion. But it requires no moisture to remove greasy fingerprints or nose smudges. Having used this product for several years, we are amazed at how well it cleans and protects our valuable glass!
