The large 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.

Rocket Blaster Dust-Removal Tool (Large, Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1058.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower While this large version may be a little bit big to carry into the field, It works great for blowing dust off of lenses, sensors and out of hard to reach places. The power of this rocket blower may have been slightly exaggerated by other reviewers (not anywhere near as powerful as canned air) but it certainly gets the job done. It's not that bulky, and it certainly isn't heavy, but if you need something to go in your camera bag (and you don't like to carry large or multiple bags) you might consider the medium or small sizes. However, for use at home or in the studio, this more powerful large size is really preferable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, works great! This is a great eco-friendly, cost effective alternative to canned air. Perfect for lenses and delicate equipment, but it's also powerful enough for cleaning inside computer cases, keyboards, etc. My shaggy cat loves to jump on my Macbook keyboard every chance he gets, and the Rocket Blower is the perfect counter-attack to his shenanigans. It's not a good idea to use vacuum cleaners near electronics because of the potential for static discharge, so this is much safer. The rubber is good quality and the product overall feels very sturdy and well made. Plus, the rocket form factor is just cool. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blast-Off If you squeeze quickly enough, this has as much force as the old outlawed cans of compressed air. The first time I tried it I was blown away at how much force it can deliver. It is really too large to fit in an everyday camera bag, so I keep it at home for those once-a-year overhaul cleanings (or other emergencies). The bulb smells very strong of rubber - strong enough to give my wife an asthma attack. I also purchased the mini-version. It is also very powerful. The mini version is powerful enough to remove any dust or flecks that might appear on a sensor after a lens change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from indispensable! This is an indispensable product--it's marketed use is cleaning dust off digital camera sensors, but I use it to dust off monitors, lenses, scanners, and even keyboards. The large bulb means you can create a nice gust of air that's perfect for getting dust out of difficult to reach spaces. For cameras, I recommend using the built-in self cleaning function, then giving the sensor 15-20 squirts, then using the built in cleaning function again. One thing you need to be wary of is driving dust into the viewfinder assembly--angling the blower downward helps, but it's pretty much inevitable that you'll blow a spec of dust into the VF at some point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It blows! I used to think that a blower is a blower, but I must admit the Large Rocket from Giottos is a step above the rest. The airstream it puts out is focused and strong, and it is supposedly filtered (the rear-end air intake hole apparently has a filter so you don't end up blowing dirty air into your camera). But the fins that give it the rocket shape are actually quite useful; they allow you to sit it upended on a shelf so the tip remains clean. There are even holes in the fins for the looping in of a lanyard for those inclined to carry this around their neck. I'm not sure it has as much panache as a director's loupe, but it certainly would be different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from huffin and puffin This air blower is necessary for all cameras,all types of photography and all photographers. I use this to blow dust off of lens, lens body, lens cap, lens cover, camera body, lcd, camera sensor,and camera bag. I blow clean the lens and camera of all fine particle dust before I change my lens. I also use this to blow on tiny objects for a quick clean/move during macro shooting. During product photography this has really come in handy. Some times the dust settles in bad places after all the strobes, bounce cards, gobo's and diffusers are in place and you just cant seem to snake your hand in there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sustainable and will keep you cool I am the Hazardous Waste Tech. for the City of Spokane Solid Waste Management. One of my responsibilities is to identify hazardous things around us in the work place, and as I was sitting at my desk working on a project, I noticed my key board was disgusting so I reached for the Canned Air on my shelf to give it a blast and in the time it took to reach about two feet to retrieve it I thought, what is this stuff? I turned it around to look at what it contained and found, 1,1Difluorethane (HFC-152a) refrigerant with a bitterant added to help stop kids from huffing it. Wow! This should be really good to spray in a closed environment and usually very close to you! I started immediately looking for an alternative and found the Giottos medium and Rocket Air Blasters. I purchased five of them to use in a pilot and everyone loved them so now, that is all we use. An added bonus was a savings (after first year) of $500.00, no recycling of pressure cans and their sustainable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It blows! get it. pun intended :) 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.
