    Are we talking abt internally or external dust?

    If the latter, you can simply use a blower, which should do just fine.

    Hope this helps..

    This is normally a problem associated with SLRs and DSLRs where there's the opportunity for the dust to get into the system during lens change or viewfinder change. On your Olympus C2100UZ, unless you're opening up your digital camera, I don't see how you'd be getting dust in your viewfinder internally.

    If however you are referring to the dust/smug/dirt you find on your viewfinder eyepiece, then all you need to do is have a hand blower to blow away the crap, followed by a wipe with either a lens-tissue or a micro-fiber cloth. Important to blow before wiping to avoid scratching the viewfinder eyepiece.

    UNfortunately it happens inside the viewfinder. I wonder how it gets in. I always leave my UV filter on all the time.
