The large red 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: 7.5" / 19 cm
Nozzle: 2.25" / 5.7 cm
Diameter 2.4" / 6.1 cm

Giotto Rocket Air Blowers have earned a pretty good reputation and now I know why. Simply put, this air blower does the job. I initially ordered it to use on photography equipment and found that it does a great job of blowing off dust from lenses and equipment. I couldn't resist trying it out on my abused laptop keyboard, and it did a very good job of removing accumulated dust and debris.

The Rocket Air Blower is well made and looks as though it will hold up for a long time. The large 71/2 inch blower may be a bit large for carrying out in the field, but it certainly has its place for use at home or in a studio. I will probably order a medium size unit for carrying around on hikes and when playing "tourist".

I haven't seen any other blower that would be better, so the Giotto Rocket Air Blower gets my 5 star rating!

Im deducting one star for all the hype. I was expecting mind blowing but It is just "good".The tip hole had molding marks in the hold and disrupts the airflow a tad. Had to bore it out a bit and it blows 50% better. I have fairly big hands but the bulb is still a bit too big.hand cramps after a few pumps. if it were a tad narrower it would fix this issue. I feel bad for folks with small medium hands that cant get all the way around.The rear intake vent is a bit small so you have to wait a sec for it to fill back up with air and you really cant pump as fast as you would like.its "air valve" is a farce. if you put your finger over the rear valve the tip sucks in 100% as much air 90% as fast. cover the tip after you squeeze and it stays 100% compressed completely negating the rear valve. bad engineering. When compared to my 1972 tiny gray rubber combo pump brush it oddly does about the same job. Blowing loads of air still removes about the same amount of dust and leaves the same amount behind but it takes 10 hand cramping pumps instead of 40 little puffs that don't cramp your finger. Its blows more air than all the other blowers but its far from the end all be all. Lots of room for improvements.

        This Rocket Blaster saved me. I was taking wedding photos and discovered a dust spot that was not on my lense five minutes before the wedding started. I ran to my vehicle and used the R.B and it cleaned everything just in time for me to get back and start taking shots. The best addition I have made to my equipment and the price is great!

                    This duster works very well at removing dust from my telescope eyepieces and diagonal. There is also no risk of sputtering cold propellant onto delicate surfaces. I also find the duster to work well at removing dust from my computer keyboard.

                          Item performs as described, and as expected. One pays the price of somewhat lower air pressure and somewhat looser stream vs. the can, in exchange for not having to buy cans and putting up with the unwanted chilling effect of that air jet.
                          Handy and a must have in today's dusty world...

                                  Iuse this unit blowing out the dust from the recessed area of the backside of my lens. I also use it to blow out the dust from the cavity that houses my mirror, focus screen and the sensor. Did I mention the view finder? The shape fits well in my hand. If I were to change anything, I would have a slight curved nozzle so the blowing direction would be easier.

                                        Rightfully recommended by an avid photographer friend. Turned out to be right!

                                        Excellent blower. Definitely get the large size. Fits perfectly in your palm and puts out a strong jet. The "use and care" instructions emphasize to NOT store in a closed/sealed bag or location.

                                        You can tell the high quality just by feel. I'm currently using it for cleaning lenses, keyboards, and remote controls.

                                        This is an awesome blower. Usually this is all I need to get the dust off the front filter of my lenses. The only con is that the rocket fins make my kids think it is a toy.

                                          This is the third Rocket Blaster I have purchased. I have three camera bags. Enough said.

                                          Quality tool that actually worked, removing dust spots from my Nikon DSLR sensor. Worth every penny.

                                          This is the most recommend dust removal tool. Very durable and can withstand pressure even if packed tightly in a bag.

                                            This is a great little dust blower. I had the smaller model at first and was not too impressed. The moment I upgraded to the Large size, it made a world of a difference. Canned air has its uses but can damage sensitive components and lens coatings if the refrigerant is discharged. With eh rocket blower I can rest easy knowing I will not ruin my lens or sensor. It really is a must have for any camera.
