I had dust in my 350D,took it to the 'best' camera store in town to have it cleaned,anyways they made it worse!
I then took it elsewhere and asked if they cleaned sensors? I was told that I should buy a blower and try that,I did,and it worked great.

its cheap and easy and very portable in the field and it works! By removing the dust unlike blowers which simply move the dust around to be attracted back to the sensor the next time its charged. http://www.pbase.com/copperhill/ccd_cleaning

Quoting Philhyde (Reply 6): How do you get a picture to look like that so you can see the dust spots?
Set you apperture to f22 and shoot a clear part of the sky, or a magnolia poainted wall so someone told me, but I use the sky, Bring it into PS and equalize and they will all show up.
I used the stuff from copperhill and found it very good. I now carry out a sensor check/clean when going out to the airport.
