I just spent the past two weeks in Utah and have managed to get quite a bit of crap inside my D100, some of it relatively large, if anyone could provide advice on cleaning the CCD it would be really appreciated.

I understand that there are some parts inside the CCD chamber that are quite delicate and that using a compressed air blower is definitely not recommended. Is a hand blower a better option? Also does anyone know where I can get hold of the sensor swabs in the UK or Ireland. I have phoned around a number of camera stores and no-one seems to have any idea about these items. The only recommendation so far is that I send it back to Nikon for a clean, which I don't think is a reasonable answer for a number of reasons, such as the need to clean in the field when in very dusty areas, the excessive cost and the loss of camera for a couple of weeks at a time.

If anyone has any experience cleaning the CCD in the field I would be really interested to hear about it and any recommendations would be cool.

Thanks in advance.
