Lens Tissue Review

Lens tissue good enough to satisfy a professional clean freak

The Promaster OpticClean tissues are the best that I've used. Though a simple product, it's sometimes the details that count.

As someone who is somewhat obsessive about keeping my optics clean, I am pleased to have found the Promaster OpticClean lens papers. When one is involved in professional level photography, it's critical to pay attention to the little details that can make or break a shot. One tiny smudge or one leftover streak can be enough to cause a missed shot or an hour of post processing time with Photoshop that could otherwise have been avoided.

The Promaster lens cleaning tissues have always proved to be superb for their intended purpose. I purchased mine at a brick and mortar camera store for 1.99, which is substantially less than what is being charged here at Amazon at the time of this writing. Nonetheless, I would highly recommend this product.

When I clean my lenses, it's a fairly lengthy process wherein I first blow air over the lens, then brush it off with a lens pen brush and only then do I hit it with liquid cleaner and the first lens tissue. I use the first tissues two at a time for one pass and throw them away so as not to drag grit around the lens and cause scratching. This process is then followed by however many other passes are necessary to remove all grease, smudges and contaminants that are left on the lens including filter threads before being followed by a final polish using breath condensation and a final lens tissue.

Using the above process and a very specific lens cleaning solution, the Promaster lens tissues have never failed to provide me with a streak free, smudge free and absolutely clean lens element/filter.

I've also used the Promaster tissues to clean view finder optics as well as the LCD camera back and even my glasses. The Promaster product has never failed to meet my expectations.

This is a simple class of product which either works or doesn't. Therefore, I can't find anything negative to include in this review. I have used other lens tissues in the past but ended up donating several packs of them to the camera pool at work because I just wasn't satisfied enough with their performance.

I'm happy to recommend the Promaster OpticClean lens tissues. They do a great job and are the best lens tissues I've used.
