This is the blower I use.

It has a cap on the end with a reduced nozzle to concentrate the air flow. This is how I use it to do most sensor cleaning.

When the cap is removed the bristles can be extended and used in conjuction with blown air, but I do not use the bristles for the senor.

Great shot, I use a blower similar to the one shown by Phil except with mine I have to remove the brush to use it (do not want bristles inside the camera).

Don't despair, this is a common problem with all DSLRs (to a much lesser extent with Olympus since it shakes the dust off each time it is turned on). A little air will get rid of 99% of the problem.

Please just keep in mind that cleaning is not a big deal as long as it is done properly and carefully. I teach it in my, "Introduction to DSLR Camera" workshop.
