I have dirt inside my camera. Only on the viewfinder mirror though; it's concerning and any attempts to remove it have made the problem worse...

It always baffles me how dirt manages to get in to such places! Strange that you're not able to clean it though...

Finally got the photos from the GL690 back!
Apparently either they lost the bit of paper with the order number, or my mum forgot to put it in before she mailed the film away, so a couple of weeks went by without any news. Eventually I emailed them, saying that my order never came in, but they did have a roll of 120 HP5+ that arrived the day after we mailed it still unprocessed. I guess they needed me to give them the confidence to go ahead, which is rather odd, since it's the only roll of 120 with 6x9 frames on it they had.

I don't think the photos are all that special. They'd have been better on colour film, but I was just testing the camera out.

Yes, I've always wondered about that  especially since I never leave the camera open... Somehow  the dirt seems completely stuck and all attempts to blow it away have been either ineffectual or blown the dirt further inside the case.
