    This looks like a fantastic tool, but is it really woth 40 - has anyone tried it. Is it just a gadget version of those clothes lint removers?

    Ella.

    How l managed without one for all the years l`ve been involved in photography l dont know. If only it had been available years ago how much frustration could have been avoided in the darkroom.

    My advice would be try one if possible and you wont regret it. Good product, good support and worth the money in my opinion.

    Regards, Colin

    I bought one last year and it certainly removes dust and hairs. You still need to keep your work area clean at all times. I've found that the usual setup of the scanner next to the monitor leads to a dust problem (probably static) - you just need to run your finger over down the screen to see the dust that is attracted to it or is lying around the surfaces below.
    I now keep my scanner to the side where there is more space.
    I don't have ICE on my Scan Dual II but since I scan mostly Kodachromes and FP4 I don't think ICE would help me anyway.
    I'm surprised what the booflet picks up - its there on the pad for you to see at the end of the session.

    Colin/Bill,

    Will the booflet cleaner work with mounted transparencies or do you have to remove them from the mounts to allow it to clean the whole of the image surface?

    Slides can be a problem - I remove mine from the mounts - but with Fuji and some others there is a sticky strip that has to be watched or it will end up over your slide!!!
    I've seen a booflet that was for mounted slides - but its not on the website.

    This is all very positive. I would like to buy one, but where is the best place (financially) to get one - is it the website?

    Seems to be the only place you can get one - I bought mine by emailing and asking if I could send a cheque instead of using my card and they said yes.

    Has anyone seen a review of it anywhere? Can ephotozine do one?

    There was a review of one on www.ukphotographics.co.uk website in the February edition - it seems to have done well.

    I've read the article - so I order one from website. This may be answer to my dust contaminations on B/W negs.

    Kind of related, on the subject of dust removal - has anyone seen/bought/used a Giottos Rocket Air?

    Unit arrived this morning - will try it and see how it works later tonight.
    The rocket looks like a bulb blower to me you can see one at http://www.bhphotovideo.com/product/259157/GIBA/REG/426 It will probably blow the dusts elsewhere!
