I also use a small silicon hose from the hobby shop and hooked up to my HEPA vacuum cleaner to suck the stuff out of the mirror box area. I'm not a fan of blowers that may blow it elsewhere to where it may come back or be permanently showing say on the bottom of the prism, focus screen, condenser lens, internal LCD thing, or just get lodged into the black flocking stuff to come back later.


I thought about a vacuum also but when the vacuum sucks air, and possibly some debris, from inside the camera the air going into the vacuum must come from somewhere. That somewhere is outside the camera with the possibility of bringing particles in the air into the camera. If you do this in a clean room should not be a problem.
