cos this camera is quite old.. when i look thru the viewfinder, can see some blackie dots... confirm it's not the lense, but i took a cotton bud to gently clean the mirror, but no use... so where can i give this camera a through clean?

the cam is Minolta X-700

Black dots are usually not a lens or mirror problem, but very likely dust on the focussing screen. I am not so sure whether the X700 has a removeable one though.

You can go to the usual places like Camera Workshop, etc to have it cleaned. Probably won't cost a lot.
