I enjoy the ability to direct the air through an adjustable nozzle. It is slightly easier to operate in the field than the big Rocket or the little Rocket. Does a fine job and just feels more ergonomically friendly.

Disappointing...

The air inlet valve does not really work. It only works when you block the nozzle mouth, otherwise it still s**ks in what it blows out through the air nozzle and sounds...Read complete review

The air inlet valve does not really work. It only works when you block the nozzle mouth, otherwise it still s**ks in what it blows out through the air nozzle and sounds like a broken whistle.

    Comments about Giottos Q Ball Air Blower (Black:

    This is just large enough to give you enough air pressure to get troublesome dust off of your gear, but not too large.

    Adjustable nozzle is great especially when I am holding multiple items in my hands - trying to keep everything facing down (lens and body) when swapping lenses.

            I use this to clean dust off of my film before I scan. It has reduced the amount of spotting I have to do on my images exponentially. Simple, easy, great time saver. also wonderful for dusting comoputers and lenses. never buying canned air again.

                Small, light, and helps keep sensor and lenses clean. Just be aware certain airports security may flag this item and hassle you about it. It does kind of look like a cartoon bomb.

                  Comments about Giottos Q Ball Air Blower (Black:

                  The Giottos Q Ball air blower may have slightly less force than the full-sized Giottos Rocket, but it fits well in a smaller camera bag because the blower is shorter and the nozzle tilts. I blow off any specks of dust on the camera lens or rear glass every time I change lenses. The Giottos products are top quality and not really overpriced. Plus they stand up on their legs, which is not essential but is pretty clever.

                                        This blower is a reasonable size, produces a good blast of air and doesn't roll around because it has feet! No faults that I can find.

                                          I use this blower for sensor cleaning only. The adjustable tip is a great aide and the air that comes from it's compact size is hard to beat

                                            Powerful enough to remove must dust from inside a camera, but not so forceful that it scratches the sensor. It worked better than compressed air for me and was right around the same price. Great product and a must-buy for anyone who wants to remove most of the dust from their sensor without sending the camera in.

                                            Definitely better than spending money on canned air. I only rate it 4 stars instead of 5 because it does not blow the amount of air that I thought it would, but it is still very useful for cleaning dust off lenses and such. For really stubborn or heavy dust build up, canned air may still be needed. It is a little bulky to keep in a camera bag, so I keep it at home to clean items between outings. It does seem to be a very well made, quality product and certainly worth it's modest cost.
