In reviewing different methods for sensor cleaning, there is minimal mention of using suction. Unless the particles are actually embedded into the sensor (does this happen?), this would seem to make sense.
I understand the dangers of using something large like a vacuum cleaner that could dislodge small components.
What would be the risks of using something like a small surgical suction? This would not actually touch the sensor but with an opening of 4-5 mm it could be focused to remove dust on the sensor and ambient dust as well.
