Looks like there are some "welded" particles on my 5D2 sensor. After reviewing the multitude of sensor cleaning options, I'm interested to try out the photosol sensor swab or sensor swab plus. Before that, I would like to get some feedback from users on the effectiveness and safety of the sensor swab. Thanks.

Seriously; buy the eclipse system. if you don't dump half the bottle of fluid in your camera (the directions say 1-2 drops) you will be fine. Trust us all.
The first time it's a little goosey when you're going in the bowels of your camera, but once you know you can have a clean sensor at will the night before a special event, you'll love it.
