When deciding on a cleaning kit it is important to remember that there are correct methods and tools to clean lens and filter optics. Using the incorrect tools and can lead to scratches and damage to delicate coatings on optic surfaces. The K&F 4-in-1 cleaning kit provides you with the tools you need to safely clean your lenses and filters. The kit is comprised of a double ended lens cleaning pen, an environmentally friendly silica air blower, 6 individually vacuum sealed microfiber cloths, and a bottle of alcohol-free cleaning fluid. These 4 products are specifically included in the kit due to their ability to safely and effectively clean dust, fingerprints, smudges and dirt from your lenses and filters. The kit is very gentle on lenses and filters, preventing scratches and damage to optical surface coatings. Clean and scratch free lenses and filters ensures that your images will be blemish free. You will spend significantly less time in post-production editing out little dust specks. It will also help to keep your lenses and filters scratch free and in optimum shape for years to come.
The body of the lens pen is made from a hard plastic to ensure its durability. The pen does have a clip so it can be clipped to a pocket or strap for quick accessibility. The cleaning pen is ideal to gently and accurately remove annoying dust and dirt stuck at the edges of the lens, or in any small crevices. It is a safer, simpler and more effective alternative to using tissue or harsh cloths to clean lens and filter surfaces. The lens pen has different shaped cleaning pads on its reversible head. The cleaning tip can be removed from the pen and flipped to switch between a circular or triangular tip. These are protected by a removable cap. One pad is a circle for general use, reverse the tip and you have a more triangular shaped pad for harder to reach places. These pads are especially good at removing fingerprints and grease smudges without leaving behind any streaks or smudges. For less intense cleaning like dust specs, the retractable soft bristle brush can be used. It gently brushes dust specks and dirt from optical surfaces. Simply slide the brush head out of the pen by sliding the mechanism on the side of the pen. You can adjust the protrusion of the brush to different levels with hard stops built in. After use it can be retracted into the pen to protect the brush from external damage or dirt and dust.
With a simple squeeze, the air blower provides a powerful blast of clean air. The air stream effectively blows dust off your lens, sensor, and camera without physical contact with any the surface being cleaned. This makes it the ideal tool for cleaning dust off the most sensitive parts of your camera. The built-in one-way air valve helps prevent dusty entering into the blower and then onto the surface being cleaned. The air blower is ergonomically designed to be comfortable and easy to grip in your in your palm or fingers. It is manufactured from environmentally friendly silica gel which undergoes a precision injection moulding process. The silica gel air nozzle is soft enough so that it does not damage precision instruments or delicate surfaces, should they accidentally come in contact with one another. The air blower has good flexibility and elasticity so it will be durable enough to provide its powerful performance consistently over time. The large volume body of the air blower reliably provides a strong air stream. The silica gel used means the air blower is also odourless, safe, non-toxic and skin-friendly.
Microfiber cloth is the ideal material for cleaning optical surfaces. The synthetic fibres are ultra-fine, creating a large surface area in which to absorb dust, smudges and fingerprints or other dirt. K&F use high-grade imported optical microfiber, which is extremely soft to the touch and very densely woven. This ensures delicate cleaning power for sensitive optical surfaces. The microfiber used does not lint and leave behind particles on cleaned surfaces. The effective dirt absorbent qualities of the microfiber means you won’t need to repeatedly scrub sensitive optical surfaces, which over time could scratch these surfaces. The kit includes 6 individually packaged and vacuum sealed microfiber cloths. Cloths used to clean optical surfaces need to be free of any dust and dirt when packaged. Cloths contaminated with dust and dirt can act like sandpaper when applied to optical surfaces. The vacuum sealed and hygienically packaged microfiber cloths are completely free of dust and dirt, protecting optical surfaces and coatings. The vacuum packing has an added benefit of reducing packaging size to a slim and compact profile. This makes it ideal when packing for a shoot. Simply slide a cloth packet into a pocket to take it with you, wherever the shoot takes you. This simple precaution has been a day-saver for many photographers. The cloths are reusable, but it is important to wash them before using them on a sensitive surface again, to ensure that old dirt does not cause surface scratches. These cloths are generally just great to have around, as it does a great job of cleaning other delicate surfaces such as telescopes, binoculars, monocular, spotting scopes, glasses, keyboards and smartphone screens.
When it comes to light sensitive equipment such as lenses and filters, precision cleaning is key to get the most out of your gear. Your lenses and filters need to be spotless. But fingerprints and grease cause smudging on the lens surface, which reduces images quality. A cleaning liquid is the best option out there to tackle this problem. But photographers need to be weary not to use harsh liquids to clean these delicate surfaces. Your lenses and filters also have multiple thin layers of coatings that boost light transmission, and reduce aberration and flair. These coatings are very thin and very sensitive. It is best to use a fluid specifically made for lens and filter cleaning, especially when you consider the cost of filters and lenses. With this specialist cleaning fluid, you can enjoy crystal clear and clean lenses and filters like never before. This quick drying fluid eliminates lens and filter contamination with zero streaking. It was specially formulated to remove all types of smudges, fingerprints, dust and dirt. Just spray some of the cleaning fluid on a clean microfiber cloth and wipe those smudges away. The alcohol-free formula is safe for all lenses, filters and other optical surfaces. Cleaning fluids containing alcohol could have harsh effects on the delicate coatings on your lens and filter surfaces. The cleaning fluid supplied in the kit comes in a compact 15ml travel friendly spray bottle. It is also great at cleaning eyewear lenses, optic lenses such as telescopes, binoculars, monocular, spotting scopes and smartphone screens.

Cleaning your lens:
- This needs to be done in a well-lit area as it will help you see dust and smudges on your lens.
- First, use the blower to blow dust and sand off the front element. This gets rid of particles that would otherwise act like sandpaper when you wipe the lens with the cloth. Try to blow at a shallow angle so the particles blow off and away and are not driven down or into the lens.
- Then you can use a microfiber cloth to wipe the lens clean. If you have fingerprints (oil) or other dirt like mud, spray a microfiber cloth with lens cleaning fluid. Repeat for the rear element if necessary. Use light pressure; start in the middle, and moving in growing concentric circles, move out towards the edges.
- Remember to also clean your lens cap as it may have dust that goes straight back onto your freshly cleaned lens when you re-attach it. This can be done by blowing it out or by using the retractable brush on the lens pen to remove the dust.
