    Also, be sure not to touch the mirror - it is top coated and will easily be damaged. Hold the camera so that debris falls out when you clean it. I usualy hold them upside down (lens mount facing the floor) to clear crumbly mirror bumpers.

    The focus screen is easily damaged. The old foam will be very sticky, so be careful brushing it, to avoid getting it onto the mirror. I would try GENTLY picking at the old foam with tweezers.

    I'd be worried with compressed air that I'd accidentally get it in it's frozen liquid form. I have tried using a rocket blower in the past with no luck.

    hey guys, i don't think you need to be that delicate, the mirror is not surface coated so it will not scratch easily

    try some metho or alcohol and cotton buds
