Get some good blowers, preferably a FILTERED one like the Zeeion by Visible Dust.
did you try it?
it stinks and compared to my other blower it has a very weak airflow.
i send mine back after initial testing.
would like to have a filtered blower but i can not recommend the visibledust one.
especially not for the high price.
visibledust likes to talk tech mubo jumbo so people who like to have high-tech (aka photographers) will buy their stuff. it makes them feel better.
but if it really works as expected is a different question.
and im always suprised that visibledust gets so much praise.
their products are build so cheap.
i love the idea of the arctic butterfly.. but now i have the third one (warranty).
the first two stopped working after some time. broken electromotor.
good idea but bad chinese manufacturing.
and the price is not even cheap.
Yes, I've used the Zeeion blower successfully many times.
It certainly is not like a Rocket blower blast, the fine filter adds restriction after all, but it was enough to remove particles the built-in cleaning system couldn't dislodge, and most importantly, it doesn't add new ones.
Zeeion requires more careful use to put the nozzle closer to the sensor for some stubborn particles.
I use the Giottos Rocket for everything BUT the sensor these days. It's great for pre-cleaning around the mount, back of the lens and the mirrorbox while the shutter's closed, or lens filters. Do this every time and you'll rarely have to blast the actual sensor from dust.
Zeeion is useful as it is, but if you can find a better FILTERED blower bulb, please let us know.
as for that video of the static test - try the Giottos Rocket in comparison.
AA filters are already anti-stat coated and incredibly slick.
.. Now where are those new swabs I got to get the oil spots off my D800?…
