    dust free or dust free of charge?

    btw, your fren ask you to buy blower is funny... u are like sucking dust from the atmosphere and throw it in.

    you have to get static brush or sticky brush to remove the dust.

    depends a full kit of sensor brush for 1.5x crop sensor at CP is about nearly 200... with 2 brush and 1 spinner.

    alternatively there is cheaper ones which cost less than 20 bucks use once throw away kind.

    A cheaper and better alternative is to buy loose pieces of SensorSwab and a bottle of Eclipse solution from OP (total cost less than S$30). They will help you clean your sensor while you watch and learn. Next time you can clean yourself lor...

    You can check out this thread on how to clean the sensor yourself. Is really simple.

    go for diy, its quite easy. the only difficult part is how to reduce the dust floating in your room.

    I switch on two air cleaners (honeywell drum air cleaner + a portable swedish air cleaner on table top) when i need to look into the sensor or to blow with blower. switch off A/C, fan, shut window and door to reduce dust movement. once dust settles, do a quick clean.
