I noticed several spots on my pictures I took during my vacation, especially the ones with blue sky. Here’s what the sensor looked like before I cleaned it.
Taken at F 32, 1 sec close-up exposure of my computer monitor on a full white screen, then adjusted level in photoshop to reveal the dust marks.

…but sensor swabs are too damned expensive.

Over the weekend I noticed a mark on all my pictures and assumed it was sensor dust. But the mark was quite long and smudgy and I became concerned that it might require some drastic action, I checked some articles online and came to the conclusion that I might need a Sensor Swab kit. But luckily cowfish and davidjwbailey suggested a gentle blast of air might do the trick. I found an old blower, from the days when I cleaned negs and slides, and puffed some air across the sensor – selecting ‘bulb’ in manual mode holds the mirror up. I tested the camera by photographing the computer screen and it looks fine now, thanks guys.
