i have a fiber thats inside my camer. the only problem is that it's not on the sensor nor is it on the mirror. it's on the piece that has the focal points. i've tried to blow it off but no go. it doesn't seem to affect the picture quality but it annoys the hell out of me.:mad:

On the focussing screen? That's a fairly delicate plstic, IIRC. If you ahve one of hte APS-C models I'd suggest just living with it. If you have a 1D/5D model the screens are intended to be user-replaceable so directions are readily available. The screens in the others are user-replaceable with 3rd-party screens so not necessarily as user-friendly to remove/replace.

you can usea anti static cloth or a bulb blower to try and get it.

It seems that I have the same problem. The "dust" seems to be inside the viewfinder. I've cleaned the sensor, remover the focus screen, used a large rocker blower but I still see it. It isn't on my pictures but seeing those dust spots every time I look into the viewfinder is very distracting. Send in for cleaning????

Interesting thread, I also would like to know. I've taken the focusing screen off on my 5D, blown inside with a rocket blower, and the little strand still seats there, inside the viewfinder.

The only place where it could really cause more than a passing annoyance would be if it were to get on the sensor. Dust and stray fibers in the viewfinder might be annoying, but pose no threat to the photo.
