Question about Canon PowerShot SX10 IS Digital Camera
This camera has an electronic viewfinder. It allows the image captured by the lens projected electronically onto a miniature display. It also allows you to see real time what ever adjustment you make on the camera(same w/ the lcd screen). That black dot that you're seeing could be dirt or a dead pixel. If it's a dead pixel it can't be removed.

The CCD fault is a known issue with Sony. My F717 was purchased in 2004, and developed exactly the same problem you described a year ago. Just before junking it recently (Dec 2009), I did a Google search and found that Sony will do free repairs. Their website makes this issue clear, and their online fault reporting system worked well in the UK. I got a printable freepost label, packakaged up the camera and sent it off. It came back a week later fully working again at absolutely no charge.

Does the dot appear on the pictures? If so, this is a dust particle on the sensor. If not, then it is a particle on the focussing screen and really presents no problem.
