    What have you tried so far ?
    And whilst we are talking about cameras here is a picture I took at the weeknd when trying to catch one of the gerbils that escaped...
    Cheeky thing was fine looking at the camera, not so when trying to get him back in the box.

    But you will get more than 1 clean out of the products than you will with a pro clean, up to you to decide.

    Lenspen now do a sensor cleaning tool.

    I have used the swabs on my old Fuji F1 Pro - did the trick, problem is that's now dead as dog and gathering dust. [ RIP ] - now got a Canon 500D and have not had to use any cleaning thing on it. It does this self cleaning - how that works is beyond me and its most probably some gimmick but the swabs do in my opinion get the best results.

    Make sure they are the right size for your camera - if not, you can always cut them to suit your requirements.
