Just wondering what you guys use to clean the sensor on the 20d. I Just tried the visible dust sensonr brush. It dosn't seem to clean all the dust even after multiple passes. Any sugestions. Thanks guys.

It is a very delicate process. You don't want to touch the sensor with a brush! You need a special swab and solution. Read all about it here:

I just picked up a Giottos blower to try out. It looks like it removed everything but one large speck from my sensor. Tried it three times and the darn thing won't budge. Thankfully I can only see it at f22.

I justtried the copperhill method and most of the dust spots are gone with 1 swipe of the sensor. It was much easier to do in real life, reading the instructions, I was all worried and didn't do it for a month.
