Hi Folks ,been using a 5d for nearly 2 years but ,i need sound advise please.
Ok i have cleaned my sensor many times ,but when i look through my view finder ,i have lots of dust and what look like small hairs.On taking a pic i have only a few small dust bunnies .f22 sky shot
So i have looked at the mirror, and there are some dust particles on there ,but at the roof of the camera ,i assume this is the prism? there is a small opaque piece of glass and i assume there is another mirror underneath ,this is where all the dust and hair has landed.
Should i take this to a shop to have cleaned ? or is it fairly straightforward to clean .
If so what do i use to clean the mirror etc.
Sorry its longwinded ,but i would really appreciate some advice.
also can anyone recommend a shop in the teeside,n/yorks area that are compitent with regards to the above.
thanks folks...............Ollie

As regard sensors go check this out, as regards the mirror and what I think you are describing as the focusing screen, the above should also help.
