Hi,I have used the Pentax Sensor cleaning kit successfully for well over a year now and have been most satisfied after eight uses on my own and friend`s camera`s, It consists of a pad of sticky plastic sheets and a sticky orange lollipop, You dab the lollipop onto one of the sheets and then onto the sensor with just the lightest pressure and then back onto a different part of the sheet, Repeat until you have covered all of the sensor and then discard the used sheet and return the lollipop to it`s protective shell. I bought mine from SRS Microsystems online around 30, Previously i used swab type cleaners which i still have a few as backup in case i need to apply a cleaning solution. I feel a little more apprehensive using the swabs in case i scratch the sensor and i have similar reservations with the brush type as well as the fear of losing a bristle inside the Camera. Regards - Pete

What kind of cleaning do you intent?
For all in all solution there isn't something swaps can't clean, they remove dust, smudges and swipe away bigger objects.
If it's only dust the butterfly will do you good, it works simple and fast.

The Arctic Butterfly or Dust-Aid, are the only two I use now after seeing the topics about the Rocket Blower and the damage you can do.
