5.0 out of 5 stars The only blower to own, February 8, 2007
This review is from: Giottos Rocket Air Blaster Air Blower, Large (Camera)
If you have a DSLR this thing is about as necessary as batteries & memory cards. Unless you've managed to get something gooey on your lens this will blow it off. I've not had to actually clean my sensors for a year...and my cameras have been everywhere from the middle of the Pacific (Hawaii & sailing) to Europe...and countless places in between. Just FYI, I ALWAYS change lenses with the sensor DOWN.

My suggestion, check your sensor fairly often (so things can't get really stuck)...toss this blower into a ziplock bag (to keep it clean) and carry it with your camera always (so you'll actually use it BEFORE you need a full sensor cleaning.) Simple and very effective. Oh, and I AM a pro...and I've been shooting since the 70's...if that helps any. ;-)

how do you change lenses with the sensor down?

Bruce Wayne says:
Hold the camera body facing downward to let gravity assist the prevention of dust landing on the sensor. With the camera facing down while you change lenses, the sensor is also facing down.

Yep, exactly. It can do wonders for preventing crud landing on the sensor.

Back in my film days I would have thought nothing of leaving a camera or two on their backs with no lenses attached. Not any more!
