I have heard of people having dust right off the bat when they bought the camera even before they changed a lens:P

I have already ordered some Sensor Swabs and Eclipse. I will definitely order the Copperhill brush and hope this will be effective for most of the time and reserve the "wet" method for welded dust. I may try the Pec Pad/Sensor Swipe when I run out of Swabs.

I think the people who sell the Visible Dust brushes must be the same people who decide how much gasoline sells for lately... :O

I am going to order the sensor sweep for $15. Sounds like a good deal...

That is the Sensor Sweep and a little battery powered blower to charge it. I will charge it with my Rocket blower and save a few bucks.

Hi there, i was just reading this dust-cleaning thread, and i have a question.* I've heard the dust cleaning is best left to the pro's ... you certainly sound like a pro, but from all the posts on this thread, it seems everyone cleans their own sensor.I've had my 20-D for 9 months, and haven't had time to let it go out for a cleaning, so have been living with some roving spots, one of which wont rove anywhere, and continues to live almost right in the middle of my sensor. * *I'm very interested in cleaning my own, except that i keep hearing i shouldn't attempt it myself.Could you give me some insight as to why that would be?* You certainly made it clear why one shouldn't be using compressed air, but what are some other dangers?* Also, what's your background in the photography field?

Has anyone tried an ionizer combined w/ a blower to clean? This guy did it on a 1DsMkII: http://www.fovegraphy.com/IonizerE.php

Emjay,

I'm a computer programmer, bad at cleaning things in general (according to my wife at least), and certainly not a professional photographer.

Cleaning your sensor is easy and necessary from time to time. Find yourself a good set of instructions.

Start with the rocket blower - that's really easy to do and as long as you're not terminally clumsy you're likely to do as good a job as if you take it in to a camera service centre.
