Camera cleaning

This may be a daft question; is there any sense in using a hair dryer as a blower to get rid of loose dust in camera innards? Is there anyone who has used the method successfully? The blow would obviously have to be low power and virtually no warmth. Thank you.

You'd probably get more replies if this question was moved to the DSLR forum.

I think you will find that the blow dryer will result in more, not less dust inside the camera.
