Dust in the viewfinder of a SONY DSC-R1, how to remove it?

Discussion in 'Sony' started by Roman Schreiber, Jan 23, 2010.

  1. Hello,

    I own a DSC-R1. On the EVW TFT-panel there are some annoying dust particles.
    I wanted to remove the oculare lens system, but i dind't dare to do this,
    because I was afraid to damage something.

    Is there anyone here, who knows how to remove the viewinder lens system to
    blow the dust away from the viewfinder's display panel?

    Thanks a lot,

    Excellent advice.

    And yes, the Carl Zeiss lens is outstanding.

    Alas Sony won't be making a successor to the DSC-R1 because all its
    efforts (and cash) have been devoted to the loss-making Alpha range of
    DSLRs. But if Sony ever changes its mind, and makes a DSC-R2 with 15
    MP, a high resolution EDF and a 3 inch LCD screen, I will not hesitate
    to buy two.

    Ironically, I chose the DSC-R1 because a lot of my work is related to
    the construction and real estate industries, where the R1's good
    protection against dust is a welcome feature. I have never had any
    dust in the viewfinders, nor on the sensors of my two R1s, despite
    using them in extremely dusty conditions.

    They haven't needed any servicing, either. My Canon EOS 5Ds both
    needed regular sensor cleaning (despite not being used in dusty
    conditions) and recalibration of the AF system.
