View Full Version : Trash in viewfinder

05-08-2005, 06:42 PM
Can anyone advise me on how to track the trash in my viewfinder and eliminate it. My D70 is only a few weeks old, and I have not had the kit lens off since I installed it. I cleaned the back of the viewfinder, and removed the lens. I didn't see any thing out of the ordinary but I used some air anyway. The speck is still there. It is not however evident in any of my pictures, just annoying when I am shooting against light backgrounds. It just appeared yesterday, about halfway through the airshow. Thanks for the help.

It could be your lens, your mirror, or the viewfinder.
Take the lens off and inspect it. Point it up towards a light.
Clean the viewfinder again, and be sure to get really close to it and inspect.
Pull the lens off and inspect the focusing screen and mirror. Look for dust around there.
More than likely it is something on your mirror.

Found it. It was on the inside screen at the top. Almost imperceptible until I used a bright flashlight. For such a small piece of dust, it sure was big in the viewfinder!!! Thanks for the help.
