Not up to the task
, 1 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Giottos GTAA1900 Rocket Air Blower - Black (Camera)
For starters, this simply isnt powerful enough, thereby moving dust from unwanted point A to unwanted point B. Perhaps I'm asking too much of such a simple, inexpensive device. My rocket blower now gathers dust on a shelf. Sucking is often the more appropriate option.
My favoured way to remove dust is with a vacuum cleaner and a small, soft paintbrush. On my previous D3X, and current Leica R9, I simply took the lens off, held the vacuum cleaner nozzle reasonably close to the lens mount whilst simultaneously moving the brush gently over the internal surfaces of the camera body (including the D3X sensor). Zero dust and zero damage.
BTW, unless you have inappropriately exposed your sensor whilst the lens is unmounted, or you have used your sensor as a dinner plate, there should only be dust on the sensor, so there is no need for cleaning fluids
