    Why didn't they think of that before?

    The FireFly lens sensor cleaner. See story for full details. (No, I don't have any shares in the company ... I just thought it was a good idea).

    But is it true? And
    "These ions will, in turn, neutralize any static charge that your camera may posses, allowing dust particles to fall away."
    sounds so hopeful (notwithstanding the misspelt "posses" (sic)). And where do they fall?

    Perhaps thought of before and shelved as unlikely. (???)
    Am(skeptical of the claims).

    $130? Will it leave a gouge on the sensor, or just my wallet?

    Only the wallet, Warbler.

    @Am - the reason I thought it a good idea was that it's really just a rocket blower (no physical contact with the sensor) but with the added advantage of neutralising specs held in place by static that the RB can't remove. I'd be willing to give it a go, even at $130, to see if it worked.

    There you are .. found you again.
    ( I was going to reply the other day, but I'd lost the thread .. and then Alzheimer's set in, and ... well it got worse from there on.

    Anyhow, Waz .. they have thought of this before ... something called the Zeeblower or whatever.

    That's it .. (sorry found it via googly)

    Zeeion blower thingydoodlewhacker.

    Been around for about a couple of years I think.

    How good it is, dunno
    Of course you'll find someone that swears by it, and others that will tell 'ya it's a waste of ions .. and so forth .. etc.
