    Hmmm, this link doesn't seem to be working at the moment, but hopefully it'll be back up soon. It has all the info you need

    Depends on what you have on your sensor. Loose dust, sticky dust, or a smudge. If it's a smudge I suggest sending it in. For everything else have a look at the above posts. Loose dust may come out by putting it in cleaning mode, holding it upside down and gently blowing into lensmount. Try not to fog up the sensor.

    I suggest investing in a camera with canon eos integrated cleaning it works really well.

    It works for that dust which you can also blow away, but not for the bad sticky dust like pollen and the like.
