    For the lens clothes should get the micro fibre type, it is very effective in cleaning oil stain (e.g. finger prints) on the glass.

    DON'T use a blower inside the camera
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    Because you will most likely dislodge more dust and it will end up on the sensor.

    Worse still it can be blown into the viewer area. I have seen it before and is expensive to have cleaned.

    There are better ways of cleaning the sensor than blowing dust around.

    Just my opinion
