M8 sensor cleaning tool

I am looking for the Visible Dust stuff, like the 1.3 Pro kid or one of the Artic Butterfly things.

To get these tools in Europe or better in Austria is very difficult.
I don't wanna spent 65 bugs on shipping costs!

So, any help - the sensor of my M8 is getting very dusty.

Mario, go into a camera shop and get yourself a bulb blower, such as the one below. They come in all shapes and sizes. Get a large one for home and a small one that you can carry in your camera bag when you travel. They are great for all but the nastiest pieces of dirt and you don't have to physically touch the sensor. When using it, face the camera sensor downwards so that dirt and dust fall to the floor.

Try this the "Green Clean" kit, it's very effective and easy to use
