Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens
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.
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.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: is my canon eos 400d broken?
This is a Digital SLR With SLR cameras you can only use the viewfinder because the image comesi nto the lens and up to the viewfinder via a mirror. When to take a pic the mirror flips up[usually with a crash] and the image goes to the CCD- afterwards you will get an image briefly in the LCD.

I do not have good news for canon EOS digital camera. The CF pin area had a short during power on situation, many time we had to replace the main circuit. It is connected directly with the main circuit, more likely the board need to be replaced and the Canon factory would be the only place that can service this problem. The board does not have a fuse that will reverse this short. -James

There is no internal permanent memory. There is a buffer that holds data momentarily while the data is written to the memory card, but the buffer is flushed after each shot or series of shots. Sorry.
