I think I am needing something more than the rocket blower I am using to blow dust off, what are you using to clean your sensor?

I don't "glean" anything but I do use the Copperhill Method.

re: What are you using to clean your sensor with

I use one of these...

LensPen SensorKlear for digital camera sensor cleaning () - Warehouse Express

Seems to work fine for most type of dirt. I use the Copperhill method if there's anything really stubborn.

Re: What are you using to clean your sensor with

I’ve only used a rocket blower, and reading through the manufacturers guidance for the Sony, that’s all the information they provide on this, have to admit I would be a bit hesitant in using any other form of cleaning method due to the sensitivity for this part of the camera.

Re: What are you using to clean your sensor with

SensorBrush from VisibleDust - DSLR Camera Sensor Cleaning for my Sigmas (as they don't have the antialias filter bonded to the sensor, not requiring one) and Copper Hill for my Canons (and very very carefully on my Sigmas, if crud is stuck on sensor)

Re: What are you using to clean your sensor with

1 Rocketblower

2 I have a full compliment of Visible Dust Arctic butterfly brushes which get used in the first.

3 Sensorswabs for the crud that doesn't come off after the above two methods.

Make sure your battery is fully charged when you clean the sensor. You don't want the shutter curtains and mirror closing in mid clean........

A brillo pad

No, seriously, I use intemos swabs and liquid, much cheaper than other swabs and dry the sensor better.
I've also got an arctic butterfly for light dust.

I've used the SensorKlear that Silky recommended. Great value at the 7day shop.
