What is the best way to remove dust from the inside of the viewfinder...compressed air?

I don't want to hurt anything inside before I do anything.

If you are referring to compressed air as the stuff in the can from the electronics store, NO. Air in a can has chemicals that can do a lot of harm to your camera.

If you have an actual air compressor, that should work just fine.

Hi Casey,

the number one tool that should be in every photographers toolkit is this item:


It's safe, easy to use and lasts forever.

Good luck!
