    I have the dreaded dirt on my sensor. (Canon EOS 20D)

    All the advice is to use only an air blower to clean it. I have done so
    with moderate success. Does the group have any advice about sensor
    cleaning kits?

    I dont have Canon, but I assume that like others there will be instructions
    in your handbook about locking up the mirrow and using AC adaptors for
    power etc,.

    A cleaning kit costs about £50 GBP for fliud and swabs. DO NOT USE lense
    cleaner fluid.

    Just use common sense and take care of what you do...its not a major
    problems once you kno wthe drill.

    I am very bad and use a can of air, that stuff about propellant coming out
    and damaging the sensor is avoidable by not turning the can upside down. I
    lock open the shutter with it facing towards the ground at 45º activate the
    air can and once the air is coming out, aim it into the camera from about 18
    inches taking care to keep the air flowing and directing it away from the
    camera before releasing the button. Result, a clean sensor.
