Giottos Rocket Air Blaster, Manual Air Blower with Extra-Large Rubber Bulb - 7.5" Long



I use it whenever I'm changing lens

4out of 5

Pros: Lightweight, Durable, Easy To Use

Cons: Bulky

Best Uses: Lens sensor cleaning, Traveling

Describe Yourself: Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I use it whenever I'm changing lens on my camera. The strong air pressure from this device is ideal for cleaning the lens and the sensor. It's safer than using a brush and cheaper than having a technician service your camera.

My Review of Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Standard AutoFocus Lens - USA

5out of 5

Pros: Lightweight, Sharp Focus, Easily Interchangeable

Cons: Slow Focus

Best Uses: Night Photography, General Use, Wildlife

Describe Yourself: Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Great prime lens. Works well even in low lighting. The Gaussian blur it creates is amazing. At close distance, the auto focus sometimes does not work but there is a manual focus. If I lost or ruin the lens I would not hesitate to get another one. The price is incredibly low.

Fun Lens

Pros: Lightweight, Easily Interchangeable

Best Uses: Special Effects, Wildlife

Describe Yourself: Hobbyist/Enthusiast

If you are in a rut, the lens can provide some creative effects. It is a bit hard to focus and will only work in either manual exposure or aperture priority. It's best to use the manual exposure for better control. So far, I have been having fun with it.
