Fibre in the eyepiece HELP!

So I was taking my camera out today and was shooting the snow but as I came home I saw there was some sort of black fibre/something in the eyepiece of my Canon 600D...
I went home and got my cleaning kit and took a nice clean to it, and took the eyepiece cover off (the rubber bit) and it still hadn't come out...
I just wanted to know if anyone has had this problem with their DSLR because I'm slightly nervous and scared as to what the heck has happened!

Cheers

Re: Fibre in the eyepiece HELP!

Depends where it is but if it's behind the outside glass of the eyepiece there's not much you can do (other than send it to a repair centre) - similarly if it's on the mirror. Having said that, neither would interfere with the image, just your view of the subject!

Re: Fibre in the eyepiece HELP!

Yes I have had that in the past and has been said there's not much you can do about it.. you will find that just maybe it will move out of vision at times.....the time to start worrying is when something crawls across the viewfinder inside when your camera is raised to the eye, you will think you are seeing things.......

Re: Fibre in the eyepiece HELP!

Yeah, that's the thing I think it's behind the glass! I don't even understand how it got there! It's still on warranty so hopefully it will be sorted then! Thank you

I don't think the warranty will cover cleaning, bits of dust & fibre etc are a fact of life you get used to with a DSLR as things just get in when you change lenses. You can give it a blow out with a rocket blower & see if that moves it.

Re: Fibre in the eyepiece HELP!

I dont understand how it got there!......Further to my other post, I have a Canon G3, once when I was holiday in Tunisia I took this camera as a back up to my main outfit, I took a few family snaps around the pool when viewed the shots on the cameras monitor something was not quite right, later in the day I checked it out on a laptop low and behold a.....very long eyelash across the censor....how on earth did that get there? in a sealed camera....... the camera went back to Canon then jobed out to another repair company it cost me £125the camera was about 15 months old.....I still have that camera if anything happens like that again I'l just bin it...........

I had a similar problem with D90;it was actually on the mirror ,but a bit of careful cleaning with brush and blower soon got rid of it!

Re: Fibre in the eyepiece HELP!

Quick tip for anyone with a Panasonic pocket camera (e.g. a FX-55, TZ-10, etc) and finds dust on the sensor. There are various videos showing how to dismantle and clean, like this or this.

I had a speck in my FX-55; it's no longer there and the camera is working very well!

Re: Fibre in the eyepiece HELP!

There are lots of good videos on you tube about cleaning - just watched a couple and realised that a good blow out with the mirror up might be a good idea (something I hadn't thought of before :confused) - blew out a small bit of paper a couple of mm in size!!

I have a spot that is visible on the view finder but doesn't affect my shots however it annoys me so I'm going to order a cleaning kit and try and get rid of it.
