    There's a cleaning mode in the menu. Read the manual to find out how exactly to access it. It flips the mirror up until the camera is turned off.

    Alternative way is to put it on bulb mode but then you have to hold the shutter button down.

    Go the last tab in your menu and there should be a Censor Cleaning option, this enables Mirror Lockup once you've hit the shutter once.

    To deactivate it once you are done, shut the camera off.

    Use the sensor cleaning mode...and make sure you have plenty of battery power.

    I don't recommend putting it in BULB for this -- if you accidentally let go of the shutter release, the mirror will flip down and you could damage it.
