      I recently purchased a Panasonic AG-DVC30 camcorder (which is fantastic). I just shot a stock car race for a friend and knowing that it would most likely be very dusty, I took the precaution of placing a Kata rain cover over the camcorder to protect it. To make a long story short, the video turned out terrific, but I now notice some dust specks on the eyepiece view finder (behind the lens). The video is unaffected, however. Is this something I should worry about? The camera itself was sealed very well in the rain cover and only the eyepiece viewfinder and the lens were "in the open". I had a UV filter on the lens. Should I get it cleaned?

      Get a can of air found at most computer or office stores and blast the air in there- it should get whatever flew in there out.

      Don’t shoot the air too close! just enough to get whatever went in out.

      Thanks compusolver! I wasn’t aware that the eyepiece can be removed! I tried it, and it did remove some of the dust, but there is still some left (possibly beneath the glass in the viewfinder. I video taped another stock car race yesterday and the video was fine. As long as the dust isn’t affecting the camera or the video I can live with it. Thanks for the help everyone.
