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.

:bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

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... :D

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). :D

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 :bsmilie:

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