    I'm getting a little sick of cloning dust spots from my shots. I was having a look through some old shots and started seeing that it's the same spots I've had since I got it (second hand). For this reason I'm not sure if a blower brush is likely to shift it.

    I've been looking at this this , I know someone who got one but I didn't get to find out how well it worked. Anyone tried it? If not does anyone have a relatively inexpensive suggestion?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've never seen or heard from anyone who has used something like that.

    Cleaning the sensor really isn't a big deal, you are only cleaning the filter over the sensor, so the possibility of damage isn't too high, as long as you use common sense.

    There are some 'brush' products...notably the Acritc-Butterfly line from VisableDust. There are also plenty of swab products, that you would use with Elcipse cleaning fluid.
