This entry is for all the photographers out there who have had to deal with my biggest photo phobia: DUST. Sometimes, dust doesn't raise its ugly head. When I've got an intricate subject and vivid colors, it can find lots of places to hide.

On the other hand, half my photos have a big chunk of blue sky. Each and every time I scrutinize one of these shots, I find those annoying blurs and blobs.

So, my question is:

What do you do about dust? I've read a million how-tos on the web, advocating everything from blowers to swabs to vacuums. I am pretty darned nervous about sticking anything in the bowels of my cameras, but enough is enough.

The most promising solution seems to be something called the 'Arctic Butterfly,' from Visible Dust, but it's so darned pricey.

Any recommendations, pro or con?
