I decided to clean some dust from my sensor today and used a little air blower. As this was my first time of doing it I was very careful and nervous as I didn't want to make it any worse.

Now the sensor is clean but it looks like quite a bit of dust has blown into the viewfinder.

Has anyone experience with cleaning dust from the viewfinder? Or would that be a service centre job?

The camera I use is the Sony A100.

And also, does anyone have good camera cleaning tips?

My tip, pay someone else to do it... I dont want to screw my camera's so send mine in to be done professionally, they generally do a lens for me at the same time for no extra charge...

take it to a service centre

if you have a canon and a member of cps they will do it while you wait for free. i don't know if other makes have a similar service.

my 1ds mk3 cleans it self, and it works surprisingly well :)

Minor Hijack - but how many CPS members are here - we're doing some work with them on new service offerings for members - so would be interesting to see how many CPS auto snappers are here ...
C'mon, do it!

Im not, would love to be though, CPS is offered to 1d series body owners only from what i know... Although i think the 7d/5d/1d should be included

you can count a 5D as one of your bodies towards membership but you need at least one EOS 1 series...

Thanks for the advice on cleaning, next time I will bring it to a service centre, but I just don't want to be without it for a long time.

It is ok for now as the dust from the sensor is gone and the photo's turn out great again. I can live with the dust in the viewfinder as it doesn't affect the photo's but will get that cleaned when I do decide to get it done professionally.
