Help ... I have a dust into my viewfinder XL2
Hi !

Well Ive got something in the viewfinder ... behind the first glass (plastic glass) when you know that we opened the viewfinder !

I can 't remove this dust... I look at the Canon manual but it is not that ,its not at the same place ...
I need to show you where but i dont know how (image) ?

Somebody has a way of removing that ... I give a knock on the plastic glass to move the grain of dust on the sides of the viewfinder ,but thats not work !...

Dust inside the viewfinder (behind the outer plastic element) if minor can be left alone as it will not affect the actual footage, but if it is a big clump that is annoying to view through then it'll need to be taken apart and reassembled.

Completely remove the rubber eye-cup first. The plastic viewfinder eyepiece can then be unscrewed and taken apart to allow better access and clean behind the outer element but it can be a bit fiddly to fit back together.
