Canned Gas and DSLRs

One of the things that will turn grown men into mewling kittens is any mention of using canned gas as a dust removing method for cameras.

Don't do it, they say, it is instant death for your camera. Sometimes so stridently that one would think they were having kittens.

But really, how unsafe is it? What is the very worst case scenario? How about a blast of liquid straight from the can?

I invite you to watch a  short 1 minute (very amateur) video. The white blast at the 15 second mark is a blast from an upside down canned gas container being unloaded into the mirror box of a Pentax *istD camera.

The camera suffered absolutely no ill effects from this abuse.

Canned Gas Camera Torture.
