cleaning some specs of dirt

Hi guys, I recently bought a second hand vx2k and thankfully, everything is picture perfect in the camera, except ofcourse, the dirt thing i mentioned. Its can be seen through the viewfinder only, and i'm wondering how i would go about cleaning this. I mean, the dirt is not on the viewfinder glass itself, and its certainly not in the front lens. it seems to be in between, somehow. apart from this, the camera is in pristine condition, its still shiny! and no scratches anywhere. any help? thanks

The lens does come off the viewfinder so you can clean it IIRC, I've just never had to clean mine.

Frankly, unless the specks are really large, I'd leave well enough alone.

Unfortunately, I think it may be different from my PD150's. Do you have the manual for the camera? I think it is covered in there.

Are you sure it's not some little scratch? I've had that happen with me, not with a camera though.

As the other guy said, I reccomend you leave it alone unless it's REALLY bothering you. You might screw something up.
