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... ;)

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.
