So, I usually clean the mirror inside my camera using a very soft brush. And there's this one bit of brush hair stuck in my camera. Whenever I look into the eye piece. I can see the hair but when I go to live view, it is not. Good thing this does not affect the image I produce. I looked inside my camera and it's not on the mirror and in the AF points and stuff. How can I get rid of this thing? Here's a photo.

You may well find that its impossible to reach.

It might be between the focus screen and the underside of the pentaprism, in which case by removing (very, very carefully) the screen you can get to it. But it could very easily be behind the pentaprism and without an expensive strip and rebuild its impossible to get in there.

I'd be very cautious about cleaning the mirror, even with a soft brush. It's probably the most delicate part in the camera; as I understand it, the silvering is accomplished by vapour deposition, which gives a very thin reflective film. You'll see folks here who claim to give it a brisk buff with wet-and-dry. :) I wouldn't.

Remember, it's just reflecting the image up into your viewfinder. It's also slightly 'transparent', allowing light through to the auto-focus assembly. You really don't want to screw that up. Any gunk on it will not show up in your final image. A puff with a Rocket Blower is as much as I'd do; otherwise leave it strictly alone.
