    What does this have to do with Nikon?

    anyway, get one with a blower, a cleaning cloth and a cleaning solution... normally I'd rather assemble the kit myself..

    not for the inexperienced.. compressed air have lots of water moisture and condenses upon contact of surface. You need a water trap and experience.

    The moisture does not comes from the can itself. It is the decompression that cause the air to cool rapidly and thus condensing the moisture from the atmospheric air. Therefore, only use the compressed air in short bursts.

    They rarely sell them all together in a kit form... some boxes like the Kinetronics have the cloth, solution, etc, but without the blower, so you'd need to aquire one more apart from just one complete box of cleaning tools.
