    I dunno how you guys do it.

    My sequence of blowing the dust out.

    • face the camera down, and set to manual cleaning mode
    • bring the blower to the area where I need to clean
    • squeeze one time to blow the air out, and not release it until I move it away from the camera's opening
    • repeat the above process several times.
    • switch off the camera
    • put the lens back on


    Don't see why the dust should get sucked into the blower.

    hmm.. i guess they are referring to those dust already suspended in the air (not those that u blow off from the camera)..

    I've used my rocket to blow sensors from 3-4 camera bodies. I never had the problem of having more dust after blowing....

    I always give it a few squeezes before blowing anything.

    I mean, it is not rocket science... It is just a blower. No matter you use a $13 or $80 one, there will be dust floating in the air anyway. So what we need to do? do all our camera sensor blowing in a clean room?

    the blue blower's air intake is also at the back, not sure about the rocket
    someone should make some sort of gentle vacuum to suck away the dust inside

    so if you put some sort of dust filter at the air intake, you should eventually have a jet of dust free air from the nozzle.

    the only problem with the rocket is that the jet of air is not strong enough.
    I also have a rocket

    Since we on the topic of blower and cleaning our camera, can anyone advise on what we should have for our dslr cleaning kit, apart from the blower? Are the kit sold in a set, like i go to a shop and say 1 set of camera cleaning kit and they will provided me with a package that has all the needed tools? does it work this way or i need to buy each and individual item? Please advise, i'm a newbie on this, thanks.

    If Giottos rocket suck back the air(with dust particle) into the blower, i think the next blow we will blow out the dust particles from the blower into the sensor right?

    Will that cause more dust in the sensor, anyone?

    Now puzzled to choose between the $13.50 or the $80. Will the Giottos rocket do the trick?
    Wah, $80 for a blower. I saw the official website...anti static air?? ziun bo? I dun dilly dally when i change my lens, and i hardly use f22, but i still noticed a few mini grey spots here and there when i just checked after seeing this thread. anti static air...sounds very interesting......i go see see look look when i next go cathay.

    Mine personal opinion, better leave the sensor cleaning to the Service center unless you really really know what you are doing
