"Bug inside D40 body! HELP!"


Kuala Lumpur, MY
          

I was taking some pics today when I noticed a tiny bug near one of the AF points of my 30-day old D40.

I took off the UV lens but the bug was still in view.

I took off the kit lens, same thing.

So I peeked into the camera body and saw the tiny bug beside one of the AF points.

The bug disappeared from view after some time, but I know it's still inside the camera body. What should I do???

Note: Since I bought my D40, I never took the kit lens off. So I really find this weird.

Way back in 1977 the Nikon FM had problems with mites on the focus screen, this was due to the chemicals used in its manufacture being attrctive to them.

This bug most likely crawled in sometime, even with the lens on stuff gets into camera viewfinders. My F75 is only a few months old and already has a spec of dust and a hair inside it.

If the bug has no food it'll crawl off and die somehwere, hopefully not on the CCD or in the lens or finder.

Its an annoyance for sure, but I would just ignore it, trying to remove it, in my opinion, would do more harm than good.

The only reason to remove it would be if it died and came to rest on the sensor itself, and showed up in every picture.

Train it to guard your camera and teach it to screech at 130db if anybody but you picks the camera up.
Once you have done this place "Warning - guard bug inside" stickers on the body for public safety purposes.
