Having problems with your Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens ?
Canon EOS 300D Loose primary mirror
\015 Recently, I noticed that when I was taking pictures in a vertical downwards plane, the image in the viewfinder was wobbling. On inspection, it was noted that the primary mirror is partially detached from the very thin metal(?) sub frame, and this in thur is partially detached from the main mirror frame. I would not think it would be worth having it fixed by Canon ($200+??), and I do have a 40D, so I'm not without a camera. I attach a macro shot of the problem. Would spot fixing it with superglue be an option, or would some other adhesive be preferable? Should I remove the mirror entirely before refixing? Any help would be most useful.\015\012\015\012Regards, Mike \015
Absolutely. Glue away. These mirrors of course in no way effect image quality, but you still want to be careful with the glue, and make sure the mirror stays aligned so it's free to flip up.

I am using Canon EOS 5D. I was taking pictures of the sunset this evening, then the mirror inside the camera dropped out inside. I opened the camera and saw the little mirror (I don't know what it's called) was not in the position it's supposed to be. I guess the glue between it and the camera didn't work, so the mirror can stick to the camera. Please help me! What can I do now? I can't afford to fix it at this time, and I don't know if it's a serious problem.
Has the mirror actually fallen off from the frame or is it that it is misaligned? Both, by themselves, are not serious problems. You do not need to pay much for fixing it. If the camera is not under warranty, you can get it fixed by a local (reliable ... Canon EOS-5D 12.8 Megapixel SLR Digital Camera w/ EF 24-70mm Zoom Telephoto EF 70-200mm f/ Autofocus L

Looking for tips to clean a very dusty Canon EOS 350D I've just boughtoff eBay. The view through the viewfinder is very dirty with a couple of black spots and some dust and small hairs etc. The pictures themselves are clear so the sensor is fine, it is the opaque plastic bit through which the mirror reflects which needs a clean. This is the part with the seven little squares where the focus LEDs light. Also one of those LEDs (the leftmost) is not working and the next nearest ones are dimmer
If you know how to get the lens out, then it shouldn't be too difficult to clean it, but it is tricky. Having it serviced would be the best option. However, if the pictures are clear, i wouldn't bother much, as giving it for servicing would probably ... Digital Cameras

I'm looking at buying a Canon EOS 400d and wonder if anyont can confirm whether my lens from old Canon EOS 620 film camera body will be compatible. (Unfortunately lens in storage at moment so I can't quote model numbers, but one is Canon 50 mm ultrasonic lens and other is a (I think) sigma 28 to 200 mm)
The canon lens should work fine. Some of the Sigma lenses have to be converted by Sigma to work with digital. The last one I sent to them they only charged me $10 for return shipping. You can find their address online. ... Canon Digital Cameras

Broken MIrror? well your sub-mirror is broken inside of the camera, i had the same problem, it just happens by itself after extended use of the camera, and it is not a means for recall by canon so you have to deal with it yourself. this website can fix it for $130 and they will replace it with a metal piece so it doesn't happen again(original piece is weak plastic) I just read the above solution.
