Dust in Viewfinder

Had a search for this but didn't seem to find anyone addressing this.

On my AF I have been finding really annoying dust specs in the viewfinder which I can't seem to shift. The photos that the camera takes are fine and dust free, it's just in the viewfinder. Now normally I wouldn't worry, but there are two now that are right in the middle of the focus area and I'm starting to go slightly nuts every time I have to see them.

Question is, is there a special trick or compartment that needs air blown in it or is it a pro job and the case needs to be cracked open?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi

If this is on the mirror or in the diopter then you should quite easily be able to clean this.
The diopter slides out if you take the eye cup off.
The mirror is a bit more critical and you have to be very careful.

If it is in the prism it self then you have to contact you Phase One partner which can arrange for service.

Thanks Ulf. Appreciate the info and will see very carefully what I can shift with just air. Never knew you could remove the diopter.

Cheers,
Alex
