Camera Cleaning Tool - Domewizard and DIY

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Dec 11, 2012

Keeping cameras clean can be a major pain. Outdoor camera image quality can be significantly reduced by domes or housings covered with dirt, cobwebs, and insects. Often, cleaning housings involved renting worklifts, climbing maintenance manways, or maneuvering tall ladders. However, Dotworkz has released a tool that permits cleaning these high cameras from the ground. In this note, we examine the DomeWizard and compare it against alternatives.
