HUGE, but a huge help
, May 30, 2007
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.
