There's a G*d Damn Dustmite in my film camera!
Argh! I was up on a roof in an undisclosed location *to protect my boss's ass * with both my cameras today doing some test shots of the scenery to see how many trees I could get, what some of the better shots are etc etc. I swapped lenses to get the full 28 mm without the 1.6 conversion on my film camera and as soon as I looked through the eyepiece I saw a bug running across the frame. Damn, I thought, and looked on the front of the lens coverglass, then looked in the viewfinder from a distance. Nothing. Opened up the camera and inspected, nothing again. Put lens back on a peered through, there goes my little friend again. SHIT! I look even closer inside and see this tiny little speck of dust walking around the outside on top of the glass where the focusing elements are. It'll never be in a photo, but damn annoying.

And kinda amusing. To me anyway :D
