5.0 out of 5 stars HUGE, but a huge help, May 30, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Giottos Rocket Air Blaster Air Blower, Large (Camera)
I bought this product after finding multiple spots on my photos.

The best way to test if you have dust on your camera's sensor is to set your f-value very high such as f-22 and take picture of the sky or a bright piece of paper. Dust usually only appears in your photos at smaller apertures. You should be able to see most blotches clearly if you do the test right.

Anyway, this thing did the job perfectly. I know how sensitive camera sensors are, and am a little hesitant about using the "wet" method. And besides, this is much cheaper. All you do is go into a dust free room (bathroom worked for me), take off your lens, set your camera to mirror lock-up mode, stick the little red tube into the lens bay, and give it a few blows. Wait about 5 seconds after each blow to allow the dust to fall out. Just make sure you do this is a room free of moisture. Then you just pop the lens back on and take another test shot.

It also works great for taking dust off your lenses, off of your camera, out of your computer keyboard, or really anything.

The only cons I can think of are that it is too big to fit in my camera bag, and that it is loud. But it is still well worth the money, and five stars.

Hello thanks for the review. You may want to reconsider the bathroom as a dust free environment. Toilet tissue unrolling is very dusty. The bathroom is one of the dustiest rooms in the house.

I work with motion picture cameras and would like to add a few thoughts. Never use canned air products to clean a digital camera interior. You can get residue on your sensor and potentially damage fragile shutter parts with high velocity "air". If your gear gets very dirty or dusty because of your shooting environment, brush or wipe it off first. Do not use a blower as a first step. You can end up blowing dirt into the lens rings or into inaccessible areas where it can cause problems.

Stephen, responding as such is just troll bait - best to just ignore folks like Visa & move on. Best to you, thank you for your previous input, as it made a lot of sense to me.

Regarding Stephen's review: My GF is a clean-freak, asked her about dust. She agrees with Stephen....make-up,hairspray, deodorant, towel use, pre shower dirt, plants(?) all kinds of junk in the air....believe me, she cleans it, she knows! I would guess the least used room in the house would be best, not one of the busiest.

...That would be a second or guest bathroom. Small enough to clean quickly when you need it (ie: remove mats and towels). Hardwood or vinyl floors, so no dust is kicked up while working and a vent fan too! I think that's what he meant. :)

We have tiled floors in my bathroom and the wash closet is separated from the toilet room by a door.

So I guess I should have said "wash closet". But we're just splitting hairs now.

You will be fine.

My only point was that a bathroom isn't necessarily the most dust free place in the house.

If you have a fan that has a visible grill on it you would see my point.

I have a Panasonic bathroom fan with a Panasonic grill. It requires cleaning several times a year because to toilet tissue lint.

Good luck with the cleaning.
