Spot on (or off),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Giottos GTAA1900 Rocket Air Blower - Black (Camera)
First thing to say is this thing is huge. When the box arrived I was surprised. This means you get a really good powerful blow of air. Just what you need if a DSLR sensor has an annoying spec of dust. I had a spot appearing thankfully at the edge of pictures so they were salvagable by cropping. I bought this on recommndation and it worked a treat, got rod of the spot straight away. Now this will stay in the camera bag in case I needit again. Highly recommened product.

I couldn't agree more with your comment. I've just got mine, and although I remember having read your comment about the size I didn't go back then to check the specs.. Jezzzz. this thing is enormous!! I thought it would be something in the 8 or 9 cm max... this is 20cm long.. I had no idea what was inside the package when I saw it. Anyway, it works and at a good prize.

When you say "huge" the specification given is 6.1 x 6.1 x 19 cm overall. The actual bulb is about 10cm long with a capacity similar to a tennis ball and that's pretty much what it is: a rubber ball with a plastic tube sticking out.
I have the Giottos version but I've also tried similar ones at a fraction of the price and they seem to be equally effective. There's nothing high tech about it, if they're the same size they're likely to blow out about the same amount of air. It works fine, but then the Hama version which looks the same and costs half the price would probably work just as well.
