  1. Derrict please tell me you have the rocket so I can borrow it :x:


    Does anyone know if B&H has a blower or something safe that I could use on my 30d? I started off having only a hair from japan on my mirror. It's been there since I got the camera so that's why I call it the hair from japan :hs: Then this past weekend I picked up a huge string and chunk of dust probably from keeping lens caps in my pockets. Lucky for me the debris doesn't show up in any of my pics so it doesn't bother me that bad but it's kinda annoying seeing it all in there and if someone were to use my camera they'd be like :ugh: wtf... :o

    you don't have to be as careful with the mirror as the sensor, just take a lens or sunglass cleaning cloth and lightly brush it off

    Don't you have a local camera shop? They should have a blower there. That, or you can go to a sports shop and get one of those floor pumps that are used to inflate pool toys and such. Thats what I bought, and it works well :)

  5. I'm about to go use the air compressor at the shop... j/k

    use the rocket. it works like a charm, it's cheap and isn't nearly the chance of ruining things.

    Use a turkey baster but make a small hole in the bottom of the bulb (but leave the flap of rubber) to vent the air. It works just like the rocket. I have the rocket, but the turkey baster works great in a pinch especially if you forget one on the road, just stop by a grocery store.

    If you use an air compressor, hold on to the camera tight when using 100+ PSI.

    You don't want to pull a Tomash :hs:
     

  11. I'm going to use the 255gallon air compressor used to power the air gun at work, first I'll put my camera in a vice so the air jet doesn't blow the camera out of my hands. :eek3:
