Ok I thought I had dirt in my camera, changed lenses dirt didn't move. Cleaned sensor, and mirror I could get to dirt didn't move. I only see it through the view finder and it is not on my pictures. Non issue I know but it is driving me nuts! Can fit get into the viewfinder> or maybe between the mirror and the shutter? I have no clue how to clean there, without causing problems. Any suggestion or should I just take it into the camera store. Funny they dt just showed up today.

What camera is it John. Have you looked without the mirror locked up and with it locked up? Perhaps when it snapped up some dirt was thrown up? Perhaps a puff(!!) of air would dislodge it? Could it be condensation instead of dirt?
Well it is a D3200, I tired air to no avail. You can see it in the view finder but it does not show up on the pictures.I looked at the mirror as well but didn't see anything. I am at a loss. One piece looks almost like a small inset wing. Thanks!
I did but I didn't see anything in there. I have never had a camera view finder apart. I may just take it to the photo store. Does Nikon have IPB available for their camera? Is this common in a view finder? I am going to recheck everything with a magnifying glass to be sure. Thanks.

If you can see well defined dirt specks through the viewfinder, it's most often on the focusing screen (top of mirror chamber). Could be on the bottom where a puff of air could dislodge it, but it could be on top requiring focusing screen removal. It's not uncommon to get dirt/dust in that location.
Ah thanks! Well within my skill set and available tools. My income is based on fixing so when I can I do. I was concerned of any sort of focusing calibration for ti that I may not be able to do. Thanks for the link. I will get it done today! I can not stand those specs! hahaha
