Re: sensor cleaners

I'd suggest the SensorKlear before trying anything more drastic or expensive. They're cheap and effective as long as the 'dust' isn't stuck on too tight.

Usual rant here - There is much snake oil in the sensor cleaning market, and also people selling products that may work but are ten timse the price they should be. If you need a good, fine-bristled brush that won't scratch anything, search for a Daler-Rowney SY21 which costs about 3. Wash it in dishwashing liquid, rinse thoroughly and then let it air-dry without touching it.

For 'sticky' dust you may need to use the 'Copperhill' method - Pecpads and Eclipse fluid. That's nothing to be afraid of if you follow the instructions here. You can make a spatula from a children's glue spreader.
