Well remember you can blow dust into the body too...

Body and lens caps are also stealth means for pesky dust particles to get inside you DSLR, so always keep them dust free and out of pockets. Or as soon as you attach the lens or the body cap to the DSLR, the dust will simply fall into the body...

Yeah, I have heard that the rocket blower is the best of the blowers, so I just bought one (As my current one is half broken), if that doesn't work looks like I'm going to have to find something more......extreme.

A rocket blower is a type of blower that's shaped like a rocket (hence the name) that gushes air and hopefully, removes dust.

Yeap, I've heard that it's better than any of the other blowers you can get. So I should get it in a couple days, so will let you guys know :)

The dust blowing thing worked for me!

Go to an un dusty room, not near any electronic equitment, then blow air on the mirror, then do it on the sensor, then on the inside of the lens.

It took me a good 4 or 5 tries before I got rid of the dust mark on mine (which was rather large, about 100 pixels in diameter...oh whatever i could see it in the viewfinder it was big enough lol) but it ran away in the end :D

Lucky you, and thank you Fearless for letting me know what a Rocket Blower is.

Nope, blower didn't help one bit. You guys don't want to see the F22 shot of the sky! It almost made me cry. Looks like I'm going to have to take more extreme messures. Most likley going to have to order something from the states.

Ideas?
