Dirt/dust in your camera.

Best advice is to bring it down to the service centre for a sensor cleaning.

If it is really dirt/dust issue, sensor cleaning would take roughly an hour.

Hi fellow photographer, I have noticed that my DSLR viewfinder is dirty on the inside after i went down to NSC for sensor cleaning this morning. I can see some dust every time I look through it. The picture is not affected, but it is really annoying to see this. I checked with the NSC and they quote for another $120.00 if i wanted to clean the view finder.

Can you suggest what is the best to clean this dust without going down to NSC again and touching any other internal part of the body especially the sensor?

Thanks

I simply ignore it, since it does not show up on my images, anyway, after a while, you won't notice it at all.

But does this affect metering? I know AF does get affected but I am concerned that this could cause a metering issue...should I be?

I've used old SLRs with a fair amount of dust inside the viewfinder and all my shots are exposed properly. Well, except for the ones where I accidentally set to spot metering instead of matrix. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
