Are these used or refurbished?The price is significantly lower than the manufacturers own website pricing.The differences between the ED500 and the 500P are never made clear-just a filter?The 500P is also packed in a remailer carton? Used?
Asked by: Robert F.
These are brand new. Retail pricing is subject to many factors. The most important is what the manufacturer lets us sell it for. The only difference between the ED500 and ED500P is the fan specification. The ED500 is single stage as against the ED500P which is listed as 70 CFM .The remailer carton can be used to send it to the manufacturer for service.

would this work for lenses or is it to strong ?
Asked by: BRAD W.
The other responders are correct. It does put out quite a blast of air. Camera lenses are typically dusted off with small squeeze bladder blowers connected to a soft-bristled brush.Great care would be needed to firmly hold the lens and keep the air nozzle at an appropriate distance.
