Let them hatch.
They are probably just shutterbugs.

It's probably dust on the focusing screen, you will need to remove and blow it with a blower on both sides, when it's outside of the mirror box.

Don't wash or wipe it, as it scratches easily.

Here is the process for removing the screen, if your careful you can do it yourself and save some money and time.

Have you tried cleaning the viewfinder with a soft cloth.

1. It's probably dust (altho the shutterbug response was priceless).

2. It does no harm whatsoever. The mirror flips up and covers the focusing screen when the image is taken. So just let it be until you have the camera properly cleaned some time.

3. If it's really buggin' you (heh heh), get a bulb blower and give it a few puffs... That might dislodge the dust (or eggs) and blow them out of there. It's safer not to wipe, rub, disassemble or otherwise touch anything in there, unless you have a pretty good idea what you are doing. Camera repair techs get to practice on other peoples' cameras and have pretty much unlimited parts access at wholesale prices.

Leave them there long enough and you'll be able to browse the "web" in the viewfinder :)


Megapixels and high ISO are a digital photographers heroin. Once you have a little, you just want more and more. It doesn't stop until your bank account is run dry.
