    Im trying to locate a micro mini battery operated vacuum. I saw it on tv a few years back.
    Now I can seem to find it anymore. This would be perfect for cleaning camera bodies. Any suggestions?

    Brookstone, Amazon. Also try an inexpensive paintbrush from an art store - 1/2" to 1" should be fine.

    A soft nylon paint brush works quite well for cleaning a camera inside and out.

    I had one of those years ago, that I used for cleaning out keyboards when I was a tech. I have no idea what happened to it.
    I use a moderate-stiff brush to clean the dust and crap out of my laptop keyboard. A few rinses in water and I can also use it for painting.

    I had a mini vacuum too. It didn't work very well for cameras.

    I suggest compressed air and a soft brush. Works for me.

    My thing with compressed air, if its to strong may damage the shutters or may lodge dust under or around sensor. I have a bulb blower but it seems not enough. I will just have to go with an old brush. I just wanted to try this vaccum but it may be to weak aswell.

    Compressed air on the outside is fine but use a rocket bulb (or clean turkey baster) on the inside.
