I know you're not supposed to use a compressed air can to clean your sensor, but can you use an electric one like this?

Hard to guess w/o any specs on what this thing is actually doing. I wouldn't want to use anything more powerful than what a Rocket Blower would do, but even then all you're doing is blowing dust around in the sensor cavity.

What would be neat-o is a combination blower/vacuum.

I've used this on my sensor and lens before, it definitely works great, I'm just wondering if I'm at risk of damaging it. The air isn't as strong as a can, but probably a but stronger than a squeeze bulb.
