The first method of cleaning is to use a blower such as the Giottos blower: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...e&n=502394

If that doesn't work, there are multiple methods such as using Pec swabs with Eclipse solution (I believe, not sure if that's the right terminology).

There's also this method (which it seems a lot of people use): http://www.pbase.com/copperhill/ccd_cleaning

There is no reason to clean the mirror - it only reflects the light to the viewfinder, not to the sensor. If you are wondering about cleaning the sensor, that is a different matter, and there are many threads (do a search) discussing this.

Regards,

Gordon
