    I got my A*F blower(the blue one) from John 3:16 at $15. Actually, I suppose as long as u keep it in a cool, DRY area with no large fluctuations in temperature, a PnS shld b just free without drying agents. But that's IMO lah.

    Any reason why u dun wanna get a drying agent?

    hmm, it's just my opinion also actually.. since by past experience i just keep my PnS-es in my drawers ( don't even have dry box/air tight), use them occassionally ( like once a week ), but they're still churning out good pictures till now.. so i'm thinking why i'm buying so many "add-ons" for a compact right? that was the reason i bought a compact instead of basic dslr, so i won't contract the BBB disease.. lol

    finally got an idea how it looks like. seems just like a normal 'blower' used to pump balloons, just that better designed for cleaner air.

    how much does it cost? browsed thru and some said it's $25?!

    i guess it can't remove finger prints that occasionally stay on the lens.

    How much does it cost actually?

    For fingerprint & smudges u'll need a lenspen I suppose but do get rid of any loose particles B4 using.

    A*F blower costs $15 frm John 3:16; same for their lenspen.

    Can check from your firmware version. Does it shows Ver. 1.1?
    If not, do try to download again. I tried twice before my camera reads it as version 1.1.
    from guitars, cars to dslr...

    You have to be careful about this. Lock & Lock or airtight boxes are made of plastic materials called PP (Polypropylene). They are non-toxic that's why they are widely used for storing FOODS. On the other hand.. they are subject to attack by chlorinated solvents and aromatics. It also Oxidizes readily, which means they could react to the battery or circuitry inside your camera.

    Whereas commercial DRY BOXES are made of plastics materials known as ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) which is know for it's electrical insulation properties and heat resistance.

    Dry Box usually cost around $25-$30 from Carrefour which IMHO is a safer choice in storing your PnS camera. I should know because I work in the plastic industry.

    I wanted to get some spare hotshoe cover in case it is lost and wanted to avoid this "No stock".

    Too late now.

    Looking for a generic hotshoe cover now.
