I tried to clean some dust off of a focusing screen - I had no compressed air in a can, so I decided to use my airbrush compressor... well, its a low pressure jobby (but oil free)... and I kept getting closer, and closer, and closer...

Well, the dust is gone. Replaced by a gash about 10x bigger than the thing I tried to clean before my hand shook and put the nozzle ot the screen...

I know its unrelated, but sometimes it just makes you feel better to know that other people have done much dumber things!

I hope the camerea is salvageable...

Peter.
