Product Highlights
  • 5.3" Long
  • Blows Dust off Sensitive Surfaces
  • Effectively Cleans Hard-to-Reach Places

The small black Giottos Rocket Blaster Dust-Removal Tool safely blows clean air to eliminate dust from sensitive or hard-to-reach surfaces, such as those on lenses, cameras, filters and keyboards. It is crafted from a durable silicone rubber that offers a virtually instantaneous rebound for a nearly continuous stream of clean air. Its long, thin nozzle features an opening designed to eliminate whistling, and can also be removed for cleaning. A one-way valve on the bottom brings in clean air and does not re-distribute dust. Additionally, the blaster stands up on its own and can be set on its side on a flat surface without rolling around.

Material of Construction Silicone rubber
Length Blaster: 5.3" / 13.5 cm
Nozzle: 2.0" / 5.1 cm
Diameter 2.1" / 5.3 cm

Does what it should and makes a GREAT dog toy (my dog LOVES it when i blow air in it's face (oddly enough) and, when you throw it it bounces in unpredictable ways which makes it really fun for the dog.)

This review may seem inappropriate but, in all honesty, I bought the first rocket air blower for me but my dog took it over so I had to buy the second one as my dog took over the first.

Other than a canine toy, the air blower is small enough to take on shoots and powerful enough to keep things clean.

When it's not being used as a dog toy.

I bought this blower mainly for removing sensor dusts. I must have some stubborn dusts that sticked to my sensor. After blowing it four times I still have not removed most of the dusts. Also, I think it is best to use this blower with two hands: one hand to hold and aim the blower tube, while use the other hand to squeeze the bulb. If you plan on using this device just to blow off dust on a lens, then it functions as advertised.

    Comments about Giottos Rocket Blaster Dust-Removal Tool (Small, Black):

    This is just what I needed to get those pesky pieces of dust off my lens before cleaning. Works great! The small is a good size to fit in my bag, but anything bigger would seem a little ridiculous. Nice alternative to canned air.

        I bought this to replace my large rocket blaster I was carrying around in my small bag. I still use the large version with my thinktank backpack, but when I'm only carrying my Fuji body and a lens or two, this small one fits nicely into my messenger bag without too much bulk.

        the small blower is very powerful and has a check valve to keep the air flowing in one direction. It also filters out dust so you're not redistributing it...excellent product...powerful.

          This thing really comes in handy when you need to clean dust, lint, etc from your camera or off of your lenses. I always reach for this before using a lens cloth to avoid scratching the lens.

                  I like the power it has to blow off the dirt off of my camera lens. A bit bulky for travel but I will be putting it into my camera bag anyway. Like how it works.

                    I also have the larger version of this at home but I wanted this smaller one to better fit for travel. I suspected that it may not have as much power as the larger one simply because of it's smaller size. But, I found that it's really not noticeable between the two sizes and their capabilities. Okay... it is a tiny bit less powerful but, it still does very well. Much better than I expected!

                      I have 3 of these - one in each size. I find, if you have a big camera bag (especially for pro video/film), the large feels best in your hand - and gets the job done quickly. But if you're wanting something portable, maybe for a hiking DSLR pack, this smaller one does the job.

                      This item generates a fair amount of forced air but not as much as I'd expected. I certainly would not describe it as "very powerful." I was surprised at how flimsy the rubber ball is as I'd thought the rubber would be a bit thicker. Being so thin makes it difficult to hold in place when being squeezed and so it moves around too much to aim it properly. One pretty much has to use two hands to hold it in place to properly aim it in the direction required. I'm on the fence about recommending this item. Probably would but with a caveat.

                        Used it to clean my Sony a77 mirror and sensor.
                        I had dust spots in my photos. The blower worked great to rid me of them.
                        I recommend the small as it packs the same punch as the larger ones but is easier to travel with. I'm not sure what the point of having a bigger one is.

                          I have the large version, but this one is perfect for the "walk-around" day bag. It produces a large amount of air and has all the quality of the large version. Like others, I'm not sure the "fins" are necessary on this smaller version.

                              I use this as my first step in the cleaning process for the lenses and cameras. I used to start with a lens pen, but found it left loose dust on occasion. I bought the small for the size to go in the sling bag. Good airflow.

                              It's a little bulky, trying to find a spot in the bag, but not obscene.

                                I've been accused of being a little OCD on my lenses ... blowing dust off the surface or out from behind the filter is way more efficient than using cleaner and a micro fiber cloth to get at just a few new specs ...

                                    This blower works almost as well as the large one. Doesn't move as much air but generates almost the same force. Got this one to carry around with me while I leave the larger one at home. The only reason I did not give this blower 5 stars is that I got it specifically to carry around and the fins and nozzle make this blower a bit bigger than necessary. The nozzle is the same one as on the large model and just makes the whole thing longer than it has to be - a little tougher to fit in my bag. Not a big deal, but not perfection.
