I recently bought a sensor cleaning kit with a blower and two brushes not very unlike the one featured here. Luminous Landscape has a great article on sensor cleaning that I followed. So here follow a few pictures from my cleaning session. It should be noted that I have tried cleaning it with a swab and some lens cleaning stuff before so rather than being nicely spread out, my dust was here and there collected in little stacks. Have a look at the changes. I did three sweeps and got to the point where I couldn’t quickly spot any dust. Bonus points to find dust I didn’t spot. :-) The entire thing took about 5 minutes:

The following two cleaning pages are also nice: photo.net and Rob Galbraith.
