    If you are talking about the one used for cleaning ur ears... Please DON'T. You will find urself in more trouble than it's worth

    There are specialized cleaning stick for sensor cleaning, if you are unsure of how to do it, you might want to leave it to the professionals at the service center.

    No. don't use that.

    Go and check out Copperhill sensor cleaning kit tutorial in Youtube video, and you can order this product online from their site or Amazon.
    If you can hold a pencil and write your name, shouldn't be have any issue DIY sensor cleaning with Copperhill sensor cleaning kit, it is super economy too, a basic kit is good for you to do sensor cleaning weekly for close to two years.

    if you can see it on your viewfinder, that is on the focusing screen, this dot won't show on the sensor. usually we just leave it at it is, no point cleaning it as it won't affect your photos.

    if you can see the dot on your final image, it is on your sensor, you won't see it from the viewfinder.


    all the prices of services are stated on the Canon site, feel free check it out.

    Looks like this company already "upped the lorry", even their profile in the Amazon site also removed.

    anyway, they don't really have their own products under their name, they are just putting a few products by others together and selling it as a kit, you can check out this Youtube tutorials to know what are the individuals components in the kits.

    these two products should be good enough for you to DIY sensor cleaning

    to get more refill

    I suggest you send in your camera to the service center to clean it.

    How much does it cost to have the sensor cleaned at the service center and how long does it usually take to get your camera back?

    For the costs please check the website. For everything else there's a telephone. Some got it cleaned on the spot, others had to wait a few days.
