Thread: Type of Blower + Cost?

  1. #1

    Default Type of Blower + Cost?

    Hi,

    Just wondering, are there different kinds of blowers out there? If so, should I buy a stronger blower so dust stuck in the image sensor can be "blown" out more effectively?

    Anyone knows the average cost of a blower?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks. I used a Canon blower (freebie for my PnS bought years back) to blow off dust from the image sensor but while one or two spots disappeared, there were noticeable spots which remained - hence the question on whether I should go for a blower which is "more powerful"?

    I use the Swiss AF 18666 (it's light blue with rubber coated tip). Should retail around $14-$18 around Peninsula area. When I was choosing, I took into account where I would use it (I would bring it out with me, so it should be small enough; those big and long-nosed types were ruled out), and the quality feel when use (some feel plasticky when compressed, this AF is nice and firm). I'm probably nitpicking, but I'm paying money buying one and it should last for several years. PM me if you want to see how it looks like

    Just make a trip down to Funan Centre.You can browse thru the whole building to check it out.SLRR should be on the 3rd level for the Giottos Rocket blower.I think Challenger sells those normal kind only.You can go take a look there too.Good Luck!

    Thanks guys! I just bought 1 for about $10+, it comes with a microfiber cloth and a "Streak Free Cleaning Solution". Just wondering, is it okay to use a microfiber cloth to clean the UV filter of my lens? Do I have to use the cleaning solution as well? If so, is it safe for use on the uv filter?
