...The blower is more effective than a brush for removing dry dust. If you do use a brush make sure that you clean or replace it regularly. It would actually be quite difficult to blow dust into the internals of the camera using a blower. Leaving dust on the lens barrel though will inevitably result in dust being drawn into the camera.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. I am fairly confident that I have observed this very problem on my old Sony V3. It was the first one (of two) I owned, and I was using a compressed air duster on the lens. After one or two dustings, I began to notice dust that had moved to the inside of the lens. Never again will I use compressed air - a good lens cloth works just fine. My second V3 has seen only lens cloths and has absolutely no internal dust.

What I use is a large bulb blower. I guess that compressed air could indeed be a problem. I never use those.

John
