How many of you have cleaned the sensor themselves?
Moved back into your own thread.
I have done it a couple of time and some do it very regularly depends how much of an issue it is and how confident you are of not damaging the sensor or shutter mechanism or just making more of a mess.
to check how mucky the sensor is set focus and AI on manual set the camera to Av mode and aperture to a small value f22 or the like point at something plain sheet of paper, plain wall or blue sky (no need to focus in fact better OOF and dont matter about motion blur)
I usually use a blower along with a Lens Pen. They have tiny ones which allows you to clean it with ease.

Got the dust out in the end. Used the blower quite a few times and it all moved!
