This funky little “lens” is actually not a lens, but a specialty camera vacuum called the Fujin Mark II. The device uses an electric fan which the manufacturer says, “can easily remove the type of dust, dirt, and sand that could not be removed before.” All you have to do is mount the lens on your camera, flip on the power switch and let the device extract the dust from inside your camera.

Fujin suggests you use the vacuum in conjunction with certain camera functions (they specifically mention sensor cleaning, mirror-lockup, and continuous shooting) for an even more effective cleaning.

“Like a lens, the mounted design provides for highly efficient, simple, secure, sensor-based-cleaning, and with automatic cleaning linked to multi-shot photo shooting mode.”

The Fujin Mark II will come with either a Canon EF mount or a Nikon F mount, though the Nikon mount will not ship until October 28th.fujin2The vacuum is powered off of 4 AAA batteries, which should last the average user about 80 one-minute cleaning sessions. You’ll also need to swap out the filters approximately every 1-2 months. The vacuum ships with three filters, and additional filters can be purchased for $18 for a five pack. The retail price of the vacuum is $150, which includes free shipping within the United States.

Here’s a couple video demonstrations that show how the Fujin Mark II works.

    David Cooper that’s really cool. Do you think it works as well as it says?!!

    Emma McCutcheon Probably, would be super handy if it does as it costs a bomb to send a camera away to get the denser cleaned I think!

    For the 20% of actual dust and particulate that IS removable by some sort of sucking method.. But would have zero effect on smudges, oil etc.. CopperHill and save the money.

    That price point seems pretty high. If I could get a virtual sensor cleaning out of it, I would say that would be worth the cost. It will be interesting to see the smackdown between that and a $12 Rocket blower.

    Save your money. I just received mine and not only did it not remove any dust. It actually got worse, probably because some turbulence within the body stirred up more dust which got stuck to the sensor. Complete ripoff.

    Here’s a before and after image, shot at f20. You can clearly see the new dust particle in the middle of the image: http://www.laszlo.se/temp/fujin.jpg

    But i will say that this camera is a 2+ year old 5D Mark 2 that surpassed 500.000 exposures (yes, half a million) and the sensor has never been professionally cleaned so most of these dust spots have been there for who knows how long, so they might be a real challenge to remove even with a swipe. As soon as I start seeing dust spots on my new body I will give this cleaner another run for it’s money and it might actually help, but until then I’m keeping my lens on because I never change lenses on that body
