I have a few Nikon dSLr's and would like to know if someone makes a product that can be used on different bodies? For instance, can I get a kit that'll clean my DX sensors and another kit for my FX sensor bodies? I'd hate to end up with 3, 4 or 5 kits. I currently have a dust issue with my D2x and I'm hoping I can get something that'll clean it and the D300s bodies. I'm assuming the D2H uses the same cleaning materials as the D2H.

Use can use the same cleaning materials on all your cameras. You just need 2 different size swabs for the FX and DX sensors.

I just got my first FX (used D700), and curious if i can use the same DX swab (just more passes) on FX?

It's not rocket science, but i'll probably look at getting a new Copper Hill swab for the D700 eventually.

Thanks for the info. I'm looking into Copper Hill products. I'm assuming I use the same solution with different size spatulas, is this correct?

Mark,

Yes. Use the same solution for the other size swabs. The Copper Hill site has a video which is helpful.
