Paper wipes are becoming less common these days although they are still available in the larger stores like Cathay.

Have you considered a reusable cleaning cloth? Those are more readily available and I feel do a better job at cleaning.

Does Cathay sells it? I'm looking for the lint free wipe. Normal lens cleaning tissue normally leaves behing lots of lint, I find it a lot better for cleaning image sensor.

Do they retail it? Can I just walk in and buy a little box?

Don't think I need a lot, but would lint free cloth remains lint free if cut? I also need disposable ones as I don't think I have the facilities at my home to clean them. Really appreciate your help. :)

You can call up their office to make the purchase and collect yourself or get them to deliver. Their Purosol lens cleaning solution is fantastic also! I just got mine today. :)

Aiyo, Kim Wipes are too rough la! Maybe you can try Lens Cleaning paper from Whitman.
To what I know, it is used to clean microscope lenses. Canon and many other manufacturer also uses it to clean the low pass filter of the sensor. Also used in clean room environment as it is lint free. It does feel preety rough when dry, some alcohol could do the trick. I could be wrong though, please share your experience with it. :)

Does whitman leave lint behind? Where can I get it? I'm sick of most lens tissue out there.

Kimwipes are cheap alternative to clean microscope objectives. When the lab is 'poor'
Cos Whitman Lens Paper Cost a huge bomb.

Something like:
Kimwipes, 280pcs/box, Around $2.50
Whatman, 25pcs/pk, Around $5
(Prices is special Institutional price. So normal price CAN BE a lot higher. Perhaps anything between 300% - 1000% of the price?)
