    Well getting rid of dust bunnies - I have loads and loads (Pentax k10D) so I brought a cheap Artic Butterfly bargain price but no instructions. So can someone help - I am sure it is just a case of waving this thing around with it switched on? How do I access the sensor and can I touch the sensor with the brush. Any help, thoughts or advice would be excellent.

    Best wishes

    Robert

    It most certainly isn't!!!!!!!!!! ;-( You switch it on the statically charge the brush, then switch it off and brush lightly over the sensor. I know nothing about Pentax, but surely it came with a manual to tell you how to access the sensor?
    (DO NOT SPIN THE BRUSH WHILE CLEANING THE SENSOR!).
    A 5 second search on Google throws up this page.

    Thanks for that - Yes I do know how to access the sensor on the camera and had assumed that is what I needed to do but just wanted to check. So I lock the sensor open and then charge up the brush before using it on the sensor surface (or just above the surface?).

    OK Just spotted the link many thanks for that - problem solved (and of course I should have done that in the first place!)

    Cheers

    You're welcome! Wink Not sure if it is anything like the Canon, but avoid getting the bristles around the edges of the sensor, it's possible to drag grease onto the sensor! Not recommended.
    We did have someone here a while ago that confessed to spinning the brush whilst trying to clean the sensor, so it's not unheard of!
