Cleaning the EVF
Some hairs or fibres or something have managed to get inside the EVF eyepiece of my XHA1, and are annoyingly distracting. They are on the inside of the glass. Is there a way to open up the eyepiece and give it a good clean?

Hi, Christopher.................

If you flip the EVF right up you'll see on the underside a tiny little panel with a pressure latch.

Use either a finger nail or small flat blade screwdriver to push up the latch and remove the panel - be carefull, when I say "tiny" I mean minute and fiddly.

You can then access the internals of the EVF with a cotton bud or somesuch.

Re: Cleaning the EVF
I recently tried to open the viewfinder by releasing the four screws at the bottom - and it was a waste of time. You'll just find another box inside, not designed to be opened - it's a replacement part. In addition, I found it very fiddly to put the whole thing together again. What Chris described, is the only way to clean it -more ore less...
