where to get sensor cleaned

Needed known urgently,I travel around a lot and use my camera for work,and the sensor is getting quite dirty,need to send camera off.

Could someone recommend a proper place to send it,maybe there is a Canon service center in Sydney,or someone here can give a good reference to a camera center.

Thanks

Chris Canon will take a longer time to do it.There should be quite a few places in Brisbane I would contact one of the bigger camera stores they generally have a third party contact.Iam lucky down here the local camera store Wades World at Tweed does it .Cost is around $80 last time I had mine done .

Greg is right. I did mine about 3 years ago on the 5D MKII and haven't had to touch it since. The Eclipse fluid does a great job especially if you use their sensor swab.

Just always remember to change lenses with the camera body pointed DOWN.
