You all are right about the canned air/gas but I've been using this stuff in my computers and in customers computers and in my film cameras for years.

What I'm saying is, if you're careful, don't shake the can or tilt it or turn it upside down, and only use Short Bursts, you shouldn't have an problems.

You will find you are preaching the wrong gospel. I got into quite heated discussion some time ago over this.
A member stopped just short of calling me a drooling idiot for using canned gas inside my camera, even though he could come up with no factual reason for not doing it, and I was able to come up with many years of successful camera maintenance in my favour.
The internet gospel is that you shouldn't do it, but there is little evidence to show that any harm has ever been done to a sensor with canned gas.

I figured I'd just be beating my head against a wall with my advice. Been there, done that before too. But like you, I've never had any problems using canned gas on any of my equipment.
