Hi, I am having problems cleaning the sensor on Canon 20d. :?I'm finding that although I face the camera to the ground before removing the lens,and keep it facing down,dust is still appearing on the sensor and ruining my shots. I only remove the lens whilst indoors.It's got to thepoint where I can no longer clean the lens myself and it will have to go in.Is there some way of cleaning it without thisdust thing happening? Thanks for any help.

Just a couple of links

I personally use a Giottos Rocket Blower its very good at shifting dust spots off my sensor.I have a sensor swab kit but haven`t had to use it yet.

I just hold the camera upside down, and give a few blasts with the rocket blower.I place the Blower nozzle as close as possible to the sensor without actually touching it.I always have the next lens ready if i`m changing them, and change them as quickly as possible( holding the camera face down)

Good Luck

Thanks tommysdad and amazingthailand. I already do all those things. I guess I was looking for some sort of tip, like maybe placing the camera inside a bag whilst changing the lens, minamising the amount of dust that was in the air and could settle on the sensor.
