Specs in viewfinder ! Urghh
Went out shooting yesterday and noticed a smeared spec in my viewfinder , I took off my lens and blew into it, reattached it then noticed it moved and got worse, got a blow can of air, aired it out and noticed it got better but there's still a very minor spec still there what else is there to do? I could probably live with it there but it bothers me even though I can't see it in my actual photos

A "rocket blower" is a much better option for blowing out the camera as there is lots of stuff in the canned air that you don't want in the camera.
Option 1 is to live with the spec since it is not affecting the pictures.
Try some more air. If you want to be a bit more risky, you can try a sensor cleaning brush or small paint brush. On the mirror vs on the focus screen? You really don't want to be touching the mirror.

Thanks, sounds like I got lucky using canned air , it did 99 % of the job, I used maxxel blast away, won't try again though, I'll make sure to get proper blower next time.
