Quote:My approach is certainly more expensive than any of the above but after struggling to find a "quick & easy" method which gives a total clean "first-up, straight-away" using anything else (including the aforementioned) I settled on proprietary dslr sensor cleaning swabs.

I'm sure it will be worth the price for me. Currently, all I am doing is moving the dust around the chip with the other methods.Tom
