Hi Derek. Welcome to the PRSNA message board. If I had a nickel for everytime someone started their sentence with "Sorry to burst your bubble", I'd be doing this fulltime! :)
But seriously, we understand your statement about dust, and agree that most pictures of stationary orbs are indeed dust, pollen, rain, or other airborne particles. We have done several experiments ourselves with both still photography and video. Here's what we've found:
1)Airborne particles do show up on still photos as orbs.
2)These "orbs" are more likely to show up on a digital camera than on film, but they do appear on film also.
3)Drifting dust also shows up on some of the newer, more expensive, infrared video cameras.
4)This dust tend to drift slowly, usually in a downward direction, unless someone walks by, in which case the dust may swirl rather quickly and drift upward for 2 to 3 seconds.
5)Drifting dust does not explain an orb shooting across a room on video, then turning around and coming back.
6)We've also found that dust (indoors) in a calm environment does not move faster than the 1/800 of a second shutter speed on my camera. Thus ruling out that explanation for moving orbs.

Also, we usually get a high EMF reading, a temperature change, or an orb on video at the exact time that we get the positive photo. Sometimes we'll obtain the positive photos while someone feels that they're being touched, or after we hear an unexplained sound. That doesn't completely rule out dust, but it does help.
Most curiously, I've taken thousands of vacation pictures and family pictures and have never gotten an orb in motion. However, when we spend just a few hours at a site in which apparitions have been witnessed, we usually get some positive photos. Of course, some times we don't get any orbs in motion there either. :)
In closing, no one on this team claims to be a paranormal expert. Everyone in this field is still learning, so we appreciate your input.
Sincerely, Hillary, Founder of PRSNA
