Why don't you just remove the screen, clean it and reinstall it?

Here are instructions on how to remove the screen.

According to the feedback from service center particles are in the mirror box, not on the focusing screen.

The first image is very good. It's great to look at a bright emotion that fits very naturally in a shot  :)

Still in doubt if a top end NEC (PA271) is not a better option then the Eizo CG276.
You should definitely look at the NEC PA272w.

It seems that D300 is AMD FirePro W7000 that supports 10-bit output: http://architosh.com/2013/10/the-mac-pro-so-whats-a-d300-d500-and-d700-anyway-we-have-answers/

I believe you can call Apple and ask whenever you decide to buy a Mac Pro. Though I feel that a Xeon processor is an overkill for photo editing and is a waste of money  :-\

Canon General / Re: Technique...

Along these lines, rule of thirds and such, I once heard a thing where they, who ever "they" are, studied what our eye is attracted to and in what order. 
It went something like: Brightness, Color then Dark...
From my point of view the most contrasty area on a scene attracts eyes. Here are sample pictures:








I'm sure given that many of the members here are professional photographers. I was hoping that you can share a technique or two with the forum? Unless you think that what you do is a trade secret.
If you want to add some art to you photography, you should try multiple exposures and glass reflections:

I did some research and it's a piece of plastic that rubs up against a piece of steel every time the shutter is pressed.  Common sense would tell you that at some point the steel wins!   It's like when we were kids and played paper, stone sissors.
I have asked Canon service to check this theory while my camera is under warranty maintenance. The response was: "we don't comment forum posts". Is there another way to confirm these findings?

Hi Martin,

Did you see anything like that black particle in your viewfinder?



The reason I'm asking is that I got the speck in my camera, but it doesn't look like anything else I've seen before in my experience of careful treating.

Best regards,
Alex.

I've experienced the same kind of issue with my copy. The only difference is that I've got only one irritating speckle in the viewfinder which is always noticeable. It doesn't look like dust, but Canon-authorized service center wants to charge $250 to remove the speckle. Official response from the service center is: "Dust and dirt in the block of mirrors due to careless use".

Attached image is a reproduction of how I remember the speckle (dark long line). Could anyone confirm that this is likely to be my fault or is there a chance that it is an internal oil / lubricant particle?
Anyone?

Make your photos breathe, so you don't need to crop them later  :)
