Absolutely agree:!:
Canned air is dangerous, both too strong and can send liquid propellants into your camera.

For most people who don't have access to a dry controlable compressor the easiest way is with something like the Giottos rocket. (my preference).
I have a large airbrush compressor that has both water traps and can be set from 5-120 pounds but so far I have not tried to use it:-). The blower bulb just feels safer to us chickens.:blah:

It's funny that you bring up canned air...I used to turn those cans upside down and spray spiders with the accelerant (the liquid of which you speak). That stuff will literallyfreeze insects right where they stand! Judging by this (incredibly entertaining) childhood memory, I have never, ever, ever considered using canned air on any electronic component I intended to keep.

Here is a pic from my sensor after a good cleaning with the Visible Dust brushes.
Most of the spots vanished after the first cleaning :!:

That thing I had circled in purple in the earlier image did not want to leave, it kept moveing around.
Ended up taking 4 cleaning cycles, and blowings at with the rocket to finally get it out.

But once again I am cleansed :blah:


Where is the exif info going? It is on my local copy of the images.
ISO 100, F32 @ 75mm, no post processing except resize.
