Sensor Dust!

View of the Atlantic from Montauk

I’ve had my Rebel XT (350D) for almost 13 months now, and I guess it’s time to try my hand at cleaning the camera’s sensor. I’ve been switching lens outdoors, and as this particular picture shows, there’s already quite a bit of dust visible on the photo. This was taken with a relatively high f-stop (f/22), when these spots are expected to appear on the image.

I’ve yet to decide which approach to use, wet or dry, but I’ll probably try first with my Giottos blower, and see if that helps.
