While there are many methods available to the photographer to clean the image sensor filter, only the FireFly provides a convenient, safe, and effective method to neutralize electrostatic charges on the components of the mirror box, shutter chamber, and image sensor filter.
The FireFly utilizes a nine-volt battery to 'ionize' the air passing through the body of the Firefly, producing and delivering both positive (+) and negative (-) air ions to the outlet air stream. This assures that the static charges are neutralized, allowing the particulate matter to be blown off by the ionized air stream and flushed out of the camera body. The new 2nd generation FireFly includes many improvements over the original FireFly. We have reduced the size and weight, added a new compartment for the battery making it easier to install, and we added a new 'Timer' circuit that will automatically turn off the FireFly after 15 seconds - making it possible to use the new FireFly one-handed.
When compared with all the other methods and devices, the NRD FireFly is the clear choice for today's photographers.
