The Fujin Mark II lens sucks, and that’s what it’s expected to do (sensor cleaning gadget)

We had this cool gadget on our radar last year. Now a Mark II release is about to hit the shelves.

What is the Fujin Mark II? It’s a pocketable vacuum cleaner you can mount on your Canon DSLR as if it was a lens. The Fujin Mark II features an electric fan and a stator to suck up any dust particle from your sensor. Cool, isn’t it? I never tried one so I can’t say how effective it is, but it looks good to me. Have a look at the video above. The Fujin Mark II will be released at the end of September, and sells at $150, a 5 filters pack sells for $18. It’s also available on eBay
