"Also, since it's sometimes difficult to hold the camera steady while you're cleaning the sensor, you might want a PanaVise ........ The PanaVise holds the camera steady, freeing both of your hands for blowing or swabbing the sensor......"
About this Panavise..I'd use first my tripod...and no additional cost.
Another idea: somebody should record a video showing how to clean a sensor and add the link? That's would be a good help too. Where's Futt??

Thanks for the link. Seems like a very helpful website, especially now thousands and thousands of photographers will soon start to see dustspots on their 300D's.
I wonder how the major manufacturers will try to prevent dust to come on the sensor (well, the AA filter, right?). As more and more people are getting their hands on a digital SLR, something should be done to prevent this from happening.
By the way, last week I gave my camera a major 'dust cleaning' for the third time or so. I had some troubles getting rid of some stubborn spots in a corner. They just didn't want to come off. Guess which device helped me to get rid of them in no time: Yup, the Speckgrabber, the one that some people refer to as 'Just say NO'

I highly recommend everyone follow the directions in the "How To Create A Test Image To Check For Dust." I knew my sensor was dirty as I have been seeing a lot of specs on my higher F-stopped images. Then I did the test described on this site and wow... I had no idea how dirty my sensor was:
All that's missing is an amoeba and few paramecium.
