Just make sure that when you open the shutter the camera is facing down so that little dust bunnies floating in the air don't fall onto your sensor.

Re: I'm off to clean the sensor!

I have one of these but my dust problem still remains, it seems to clear the dust reasonably well for the first few times but i got some serious dust issues, i'll be off to the yocal camera shop to see what they can do. It helps to clean your sensor in some good light to make sure you cans ee exactly whats going on.

Re: I'm off to clean the sensor!

The SensorKlear won't remove anything that's stuck on tight, but it seems OK for most things.

I use it is the same way as I clean lenses. Start in the middle and make ever-increasing circles until you reach the edge. Then go round the edges a couple of times again, with the triangular tip orientated to get right into the corners. You can press quite firmly - as you would if writing with a pen.

Good luck! It's not difficult really.
