Hi,

Why don't you get the swiss A*F blower instead? It's better. You can get it from tk,ms color, john 3:16 for around $15. :)

MS color also got... but i think i paid one or two bucks more for that...

frankly... i find this stronger than the generic one... strong current that won't require me to wipe off some sticky dust on the lens body...

need to see what's canned inside... some air canned including some material that's "cold"... and might create moist on some critical area...

Anyone experience the metal tip of the swiss blower flying out?
Nope. But I have plastics nozzles of previous cheap blowers breaking off. Happy with A*F so far.

can mod by adding a short tubing 1-2mm longer than the metal piece.

Erm... basics of Physics. The air is cold because the pressure drops rapidly from inside of the can to outside. This leads to a drop of temperature. And regarding moist: The canned air is dead dry, where is the moist there? It needs more than a blow of compressed air to cool down your camera so that condensation kicks in.
Beside this: canned / compressed air is NOT recommended. You'll know why once you see some parts of your cam flying around ...

I think I know what you're talking about. If you hold the can stright up, there should not be a problem regardless how much you spary. But once you tilt the can you can see the propellant being blown out and the "condensation" can be seen.

The air pressure from these cans are usually low enough to be safely used on all electronics, or at least the countless of cans that I have used. prehaps you are talking about a electric compressor? now that's a different story.
