Program Plus with debris on top of focus screen.

How would I access that area to blow out debris? Do I have to remove the focus screen? or is there another way in?

consider though, if the risk of not getting everything back in place is worth the presence of some dirt that doesn't affect the picture? I know, that stuff irks... and maybe you can just crack it open enough to blow out the debris.

Yes, that does help, I thought those two screws might be the key, now i need to find some precision screw drivers!

As for the "debris" ... if it were just dust specs, I wouldn't be concerned about it. But these are what appear to be bug parts, legs to be specific. I swear I think one of them is going to move if I look through the view finder long enough. I got this camera in a deal off eBay, apparently it sat around a while and a bug got in it. The camera is otherwise perfect.
