    I had a Staticmaster once :then the Government heard about it, and I had to apply for an annual licence to possess a radioactive device.
    I can recommend the Kinetronics StaticWisk brush- nothing to wear out.

    I tried that and it was a disaster. The only surefire way to clean film I've found beyond canned air is either rewash or using a clean non-oily fingertip to isolate large particles of crap from the emulsion. Other than that everything seems to destroy my film

    $95.00 dollars is pretty expensive,think I take a pass on that one.

    A friend of mine told me he uses a coffee filter in front of the nozzle of canned air to keep the gunk from getting on his negs. I've never done it or seen him do it, though, so I dont know how well it works. I've never used canned air, so I dont know how forcefully the air comes out. Perhaps there's enough pressure to blow through the coffee filter and still blow off dust on the surface? Maybe there's thinner coffee filters? I've gotten to where I dont question some of the stuff he does

    I've always used one of those blower brushes. they're good for getting the dust off lenses, too

    When I use canned air, it use it at a sallow angle to the negative and from 6 to 12 inches away.

    I once decided to clean my CCD with an air gun and it spat onto the filter of my DSLR. Much fun. Nice sized mark on there...

    The CO2 cartridges I get from cyberguys.com seems to be residue-less. Shook it up real good and sprayed it directly on a mirror, nothing there. If you like the rocket blaster but find it isn't strong enough, there is a foot-actuated air blaster available from
    micro-tools.com.

    As far as the static goes, I have an anti-static 'gun' left over from my vinyl LP days that still works.

    Next year's Superbowl is XLIX. Easier to pronounce than XLVIII. Sounds like XLAX.
    I hope that doesn't mean we won't be able to stop the run...
