I was thinking to buy one of the two kits:

Arctic Butterfly sensor brush. Sensor cleaning, remove dust.

DigitalDuster DSLR Camera Sensor Cleaning Kit

anyone tried?

Indeed thats true... stubborn sticky dust is there to stay and I've had some that could only be removed with a wet cleaning. But the auto dust removal does shake off some crud... avoiding having to blow or wet wash my sensor is oooh-tay in my book .

Pat, can you point me to a source which describes sensor cleaning in blow by blow detail? I have a glob right in the bullseye that the camera's ultrasonic won't budge, and a blower won't do it either. I need either a larger blower or a "wet cleaning" but am afraid to damage the sensor.
