    ok pardon me for sounding a little obscene, but erm... how big a blower are you looking for?

    can try Ruby across the road. i use the bright yellow blower they sell - $7 each i think.

    I use a "blue in the face" blower...

    You'd be able to find it almost everywhere. Try TCW or John 3:16 (that's where i bought). Big enough to suit my needs...

    Time now for confession...

    It is the big black one that Cathay used to sell. Actually I what really need is one that is strong enough to blow away the dust off the sensor. The current grey one I have seems too weak.

    ok, when you exit Peninsula PLaza (where CP is) at the door facing Funan/Peninsula Shopping Centre, you'll see across the road Ruby Photo. it's just next to the new Spinelli's cafe. you can't miss it, there's a big sign there.

    if you walk further into that building, you'll also see the famed Camera Workshop (TCW).

    Don't recommend this one. The rubber on mine starts to degenerate after 8mths or so and sheds black powdery dust all over your hands.

    It is indeed powerful though.

    I don't think the Swiss Blue Blower is really that powerful, it can't even move the dust on my SLR mirror. I always have to remove the Dust carefully using the tip of a clean dry Lens paper. The Air jet seems to be quite diffused, not really concentrated. But it is very safe and durable to use. The Metal Tip is protected by a rubber tube and my blue blower does not "disintegrate" after begin "TEKAN" by me for almost 6 Years

    I would like to buy the Big Yellow Blower From ruby and see if it give a better blow job than my blue pump.
