    Hey All!

    Just wondered what the best way to go about clean the camera is. I've noticed some marks / specks when I look through the view finder, are these caused by marks on the mirror or ?...

    Thanks!

    If you see it on the viewfinder and not on the pictures, it is on the mirror. A squeeze-bulb blower is about the only safe way to do it. You can get one at B&H for a few dollars. Do NOT use canned air on the mirror. Canned air is safe only for the outside of the lenses.

    Actually, there's a possibility that the specks are on the viewfinder itself. Clean the outside the same way that you would clean the glass on a lens.
