I suggest that you take your camera to a nearby service center for a clean-up. Check and see how much it cost for the clean-up. Normally, it doesn't break your wallet. I don't suggest that you purchase any seperator dust spray; you may damage your camera unintentionally. Eventually, I carry my 2 EOS DSLR for cleaning up once in a few months or so. Good luck .

the dust inside the lense won't affect any shot picture, but the dusts inside the camera's sensor. You may clean up the protect lense filter with lense cleaning kits. Good luck.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
