My only worry with that would be if the humidity in the room causes condensation/fogging on the sensor/elsewhere in the camera.

Whether that works is open to debate, plus I would worry about the very high humidity condensing on the innards of your camera. But how exactly does that help you get dust OFF your sensor?

This MUST be a joke. Hell we don't use canned-air because of the moisture.

Well I see how you could have better luck when you're swabbing the sensor, but when you're using a blower I don't see any point in it.

and besides, as soon as you open the door and walk in the dust particals follow right behind you. I've had my digital rebel for over 2 years and my 20D for a year the only thing I've ever used is a bulb blower to clean the sensors on both. The trick is to get a quality blower, like the rocket, mine is made by promaster. They have a valve that prevents them from sucking the dust inside the bulb. And always hold your camera with the sensor facing down when you blow it out so the dust doesn't just settle back on your sensor in a different place.

Lots of bashing going on here about the posted suggestion. I can't say it would not work but may give it a try when I finally need to clean my sensor.

A bashing reply is not necessary.

I agree that he didn't need a bashing, but if there is that much dust swirling around in the house that you are worried about more dust getting in as you openthe camera to clean it, maybe more than just the sensor needs cleaning!:blah:
