    Why don't you use a blower and DIY? dozens of online videos and tutorials. If you're too scared to do it, bring it to your camera service centre.

    dust in body?

    quick! Sell off the damn thing cheaply before it grows and infects your entire camera!!





    I would say the only dust that affects your image is dust on sensor, and dust on the rear element of the lens. Other than that you could more or less ignore it.
    But getting a blower and DIY-ing it should do the trick!

    Then it's in your viewfinder area. Maybe focusing screen.

    Remove lens, blow upward to dislodge the dust?

    Anyway you gotta learn to relax a bit. Dust is normal, unless you live in a clean room.
    Don't need to treat your camera like a piece of surgical equipment.
    The sooner you get over the dust and concentrate on taking nice photos, the better

    * you should take a look at some serious photographers' cameras... usually the viewfinder quite dusty. Where got time to clean??

    not enough blowing power...

    there are blowers for cameras.... basically a rubber bulb with a plastic nozzle.
    Look under the mass sales section. Should be someone (or many people) selling this sort of thing.

    I suggest you just live with it or send it to the service centre...

    Using a blower outside a clean room (our environment is very dusty) is likely to introduce more dusts...

    how come post #13 and #15 are sama-sama?

    you need to identify WHERE the dust is before you start cleaning EVERYTHING and possibly put more things at risk of damage.
    If dust is on the mirror, do you think it will affect your image?

    For sensor, try blowing first with the correct type of blower.
    If you can spot the dust speck and can't remove it, you can try to:
    a) DIY physically clean it away (requires skill and 'bravery')
    b) send in to service centre for cleaning (usually the recommended way)
