Cool Thing of the Month


Giottos Rocket
Can you guess what this is? A toy for kids? Nope. A personal hygiene item? Nope. The Giottos Rocket is simply the world's best dust blower. Disappointed to hear that? You shouldn't be, because you need one. Why? If you own a camera, it has dust on it. If you own an SLR camera with interchangeable lenses, it has dust INSIDE it. Your keyboard and computer also has developed a rather healthy accumulation of dust. The best way to remove it is with a blower. Don't think of using a vacuum (which will create a static charge and attract more dust) or "canned air" (because the liquid propellant can ruin your camera's sensor). Use a Rocket instead. $10.95 at Adorama and many other photo retailers.
