    Default Fur Inside ViewFinder

    Hi All,

    There's a fur inside the viewfinder when i look at it. At first i thought it was dust on the len so i use my lousy blower to blow the dust away but it doesn't work! so i try to blow the sensor part and nothing changes, the Irritating fur was still inside when i look at it! Any advise that i can clean away the fur from my cam? Thank you!

    Best Regards,

    Does it show on your img, it could be in the focusing screen.

    Go to CSC they can clean for you.

    Could be fungus on the focusing screen or mirror.

    Your Hippo shed fur?

    OK, just kidding. If it's in the wiewfinder area, (or even the focusing screen area), unless you know what you're doing, it's best to bring it down to your service center for assistance. Since your cam is so new, mabbie you can ask nicely and hope they do FOC.

    maybe the dust is at the inside-top side of the camera?
    It happened to me once.
    Just used the blower to blow the top mirror and the 'fur' will be gone.
    Just make sure that it doesn't fall into the sensor instead

    Ah.. I also almost got a heart attack when I saw a piece of hair last week.

    Do you have another lens? Try that. Could be that theres something inside your lens itself..

    Ya, it gives me a heart attack too when i was going go take a photo of the blue white sky and almost faint... i don't think it's the len, when i unmount the len and i tried to look into the mirror reflection on the cam body itself, i saw a fur there.... i had tried to use a blower to blow that part also but it wouldn't go off, is it because of my blower not strong enough? Blower got 2 kinds from what i heard izit? 1 with metal ball and one without? Thanks for all the replies
