Useful but not perfect
Strengths: cheap; easy to handle; removes dusts effectively
Weakness: bulky; NOT good for removing pollen or sticky particles
This blower is very effective in terms of removing minor dust collected on the sensor. And it's perhaps the safest way to clean your sensor because you do not physically touch the sensor. However, it won't blow off sticky particles (moisture, oil, static charge, etc.)! In the long run, you'll still need to use other methods to clean the sensor.

Essential accessory for photography...
Strengths: Powerful bursts of air, soft rubber body, portable and removable nozzle
Weakness: Rubber tends to discolour after a while
This blower is effective in cleaning lenses and filters, providing powerful bursts of air. It is even useful for sensor cleaning for digital SLRs.
One problem is that for some reason, the black rubber turns greyish after a while, perhaps due to exposure to air or oils from your fingers. Otherwise, the performance of the blower isn't affected. It just a little unsightly.

Strengths: Very Effective, Price
This is a great product if you are a photographer. Great for getting rid of the dust out of your lens and in your camera. I have had a Canon 20D DSLR for several months now and thanks to this blower I haven't add to clean the sensor yet. All I do is set the camera to Sensor Clean Mode and use the Giottos Air blower for a couple of seconds. Highly recommended!

Giotto Rocket Air Blower
Strengths: Price, Effective
I believe this is the best rubber air blower on the market. It literally blows other blowers away. It is bigger than regular ones and can certainly delivers a more powerful burst of air. It is very effective blowing away lose dusts on lens surface. Would recommend it to all photographers.

Inexpensive way to fix dust problems
Strengths: inexpensive, effective
Weakness: difficult to get ALL the dust out
for $15, this is a great deal for an ingenious design to clean dust off the sensor in your dSLR. I noticed about 5 or 6 noticable dust spots in all my pictures recently and did some research into what my alternatives were. To my shock, many of the cleaning systems costs upwards of $80! I had read favorible reviews of the rocket air so I decided $15 was a small investment to make to find if those...

for $15, this is a great deal for an ingenious design to clean dust off the sensor in your dSLR. I noticed about 5 or 6 noticable dust spots in all my pictures recently and did some research into what my alternatives were. To my shock, many of the cleaning systems costs upwards of $80! I had read favorible reviews of the rocket air so I decided $15 was a small investment to make to find if those reviews were accurate. I have been very pleased with the results. It got rid of all but 1 of the spots and even that one is on the side and barely noticable. Just make sure you have a tripod of something to hold your camera facing down while you blow with the rocket air. Test and see if the dust is gone afterwards and repeat the process if any remain.
