Re: Sensor Cleaning - gel stick for D800/E?
« Reply #40 on: July 26, 2016, 07:22:33 pm »

Has anyone use a gel stick with success on a D800 sensor?  Are the sticks camera brand agnostic?

While the swabs are based on sensor size, the gummy gel sticks are brand and sensor size agnostic.  I've been tempted by the gel sticks, but find I stay with blow, brush and swab if necessary.

It means that, unlike sensor swabs which come in different sizes and so which one you choose is therefore dependent on the physical size of the sensor, they will work with every kind of sensor, thus camera brand.  So they kind of don’t know about the camera brand, as it were…  :-\

It is not strictly an accurate use of the English language to say that “X is Y agnostic”, meaning X will work with all of objects Y, but it has come into common use in the last few years.

Jochen, I hope this helps a little with our tortuous language !

I regularly use the eyelead gel sticks on my Leicas without problem.

Strange company!!!

They have three adresses in Germany.

Webpage >
a) eylead Bluetech GmbH
Taunus Straße 28
50169 Kerpen
Deutschland
Tel: +49/2237-8299654

No connection via phone possible

b) Am Tarpfenufer 28, 22848 Norderstedt
Tel: 04038674028

c) Dürener Str. 2, 50226 Frechen
Tel: 04038674028

No connection via phone.

When You show adress in Google You find
Buffet mit mongolischem Grill und chinesische Küche à la carte im hellen Raum mit langen eingedeckten Tischen.

Info by Amazon that sticks are made in Germany

I'm not sure that is right.
I found a name of „manager" The name is asian name.

Strange company

eyelead products are available from many photo retailers or sites such as Amazon.

Amazon eyelead

I know this. Do You read my post ;)
That's not a helpful answer to my post.
I will ask the „company" something.
I send an Email some days before. No feedback.
I cannot call.
Different adresses in Germany.

Very suspect company ;)

I assume that's not a company.
I assume that's only a men who buy the products in oversea (China?) an sell this in shops or Amazon.

I heard something about blue or red gel sticks. What is the different?
This should explain on the site from Eyelead.
But I don't find something.

Mysterious >:(

@KLaban

Thanks for detail feedback :)
My retailer in Germany say that are two gel sticks available.
a) With blue gel stick. I buy this some on 2016-05-20 via Amazon.de and use it for one time.
b) With red gel stick. This is for Sony A7II.

I'm wondering why this info isn't available on „official" website of Eyelead.

@Keith

Thanks for feedback.

I know Arca Swiss.
I use some Arca Swiss products.
I had in the past some calls with „Arca Swiss Shop".

To Eyelead:
a) Three different addresses in Germany.
One adress show a restaurant in Dürener Str. 2, 50226 Frechen, Germany.
I call and the men say he don't know Eyelead.
b) Two different phone number in Germany (nothing works)

I bought the blue gel stick via Amazon > Timetrends24.
I generate a query two days before to this seller.
I wait for anwser.

On site of seller is the statement.
Gel stick > Made in Germany.
I think it comes from Asian!!!

I don't find the product describtion on amazon.com.

I'm wondering.
Many users use very expensiv equipment and buy and use an item from an invisible company.
I found only something about Eyelead in Amazon.
