Compressed air might damage the sensor.Rocket blower can blow more dust onto the sensor than it takes off.If that one little spot is all the problem just use a clone and heal program to remove on photos it shows up in,if it gets bad you might to wet clean.My sensor has as naby as 19 spots of dust on it and I have the wet cleaning kit but so far I haven't bothered to clean it as most of the time they can't be found except in sky shots or other light flat areas.Of course they are a bit more bother on severely cropped photos.Will never use a blower on my sensor again because that is where most of the dust came from when trying to get rid of a few spots.

Lol! 19 dust bunnies!!!

You've gotta ask Santa for an Arctic Butterfly!

The Pentax sensor cleaning gadget is also efficient, but i've never used one myself.
