Okay I'm an rookie so don't laugh.

I was taking some pictures of our 18" snowfall here in Ohio, switching between a couple lens on my DR.

Notice a fuzzy in the view finder. Looks just a curly small piece of fuzz. Weird thing is that its not on the lens - I cleaned it. Also, it doesn't seem to show up in the pictures. I took a picture of white paper and zoomed a couple hundred percent with software. Didn't see it.

Does this mean its possibly on the mirror? Since this moves out of the way when the image goes on the sensor. If I'm right how to I get this off. Certainly don't want to ruin my new Dig Rebel.
Its not affecting pictures - just annoying seeing it in the frame.

Any help is appreciated...

best way to clean that fuzz off the lens is to crank up your slimserver,
connect to it with you wirless squeezebox - play some music, sit back,
relax...and then re-post the message to the correct forum.

Well said, Mr. Thin Mint. To quote Dan Ackroyd impersonating Jimmy
Carter: "I'd suggest some Allman Brothers."

Yeah, Eat a Peach. Though I usually listen to Soul Coughing or They
Might Be Giants when doing high concentrations stuff like coding. Or Ween :)
