Thanks! You know I don't think I have the 300d. I think it is the just plain old Digital Rebel. Can't tell. But I just went and tried it again and this time it worked! I guess I didn't read the instructions well enough. It has to be in on of the manual modes for the Clean Sensor choice to come up in the menu! That's cool. It flipped that mirror right up there. So I guess the image sensor is in the back. Scary looking to mess with! I just used my little blower on it but still see something in my viewfinder but I don't see it in my pictures. I'll keep learning! Thanks again for you help!

I guess I got that idea from the front of my manual. The very first thing it states and says: The EOS Digital Rebel/EOS 300d Digital is a high-preformance. . . . . . . . .I guess that threw me off. And see this picture. On the front of the camera on the bottom right mine only have Digital Rebel. In this picture it says 300d. hmmmmm?

the reason you see dust spots in the view finder and not on your pictures is because the dust is either on the mirror or on the focusing screen. not on your sensor.

Dennis is correct - what you see in your viewfinder is the image going through the lens onto the mirror then to your eye. Dust on the viewfinder from the outside is common (q-tip+ alcohol). If it is still there, then it is on your mirror.

Well, After a day at the Fair and changing lens it's even worst. Today I'm going to try to clean the mirror and outside of the eye piece. Your right it must be on the mirror cause it doesn't show up on the pictures. I tired just blowing and dusting before but I think it needs something stronger. Thanks for your help !Freida¬*http://freida.wolden.com

Of course we are right - we are just passing along what some of us have learned the hard way!
