Do you guys just 'live' with the dust in the viewfinder?

I tried to get mine out with a blower, even carefully removed the focussing screen but still some remains!!

Do i just live with it as it doesbt affect the pics?

I just live with it. I'm not even going to attempt to open it, but that's just me. I'm too clumsy around delicate things :mrgreen:

Pay special attention to cleaning a dirty lens. Puff away loose, abrasive materials with an air bulb. Use a scratch-free cloth, a lens-cleaning solution, and a light touch to clean the outside glass. If you haven't yet, screw in a clear filter to protect DSLR lenses from scratches. Clean the inside of such lenses by first squeezing air and then lightly swabbing with a lens-specific cleaner. You can get more information from the web, it's a great way for learning anything.

I think he was talking about the viewfinder, but oh well...

Anyways, I actually used my SX20 for about 3-4 years with something that seemed like a small hair stuck in the viewfinder in the lower right corner, and it was actually there since I bought the camera, but I really didn't find it necessary to take it out, but depending how obtrusive the dust might be, depends if I'd try to clean it or just ignore it.

Gear: Canon SX20 IS, Canon Rebel T3i, Canon EF-S 18-55mm, Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

Everyone should clean their camera lens and viewfinder very carefully. If your camera is having dust particles then you should clean it with cotton or according to the manufacturer's approach. You can also clean such kind of camera dust by consulting with a professional.
