ASK THE DUST - Vacuum sensor cleaner

Has anyone seen this - the Green Clean?

dSLR Sensor Cleaning Kits from Green Clean USA

A camera shop employee told me this works much better than the blowers such as Biotti rocket blower. I'm obviously not taking their word for it. There may be other similar products as well.

The problem that I see with vacuum cleaning is that while you would suck the dust out of the camera you would at the same time be sucking dirty air in.

What would be nice would be some sort of device with a dust filter that sat over the lens mount, sealing out room air, while you vacuumed.

Air would still have to come in to replace what was vacuumed out.

I'm considering it! The cost is $30 so that is not a show stopper, but it seems like a tedious method. It must be gratifying to target a bit of visible dust and suck it out, but the Biotti Rocket method seems to be well proven, cheap and doesn't involve using disposable components like the Green Clean - vacuum device.

This is NOT a replacement for the methanol and swabs, and one of the kits includes that stuff.

In the meantime Ive just been shooting at f/1.4 to f/5.6 and no problems!
