Technical Support / Re: Scratch 7D focusing screen???
« on: September 23, 2014, 05:46:51 AM »
Relaxed.

See if you have confident doing this simple DIY project. I saw one selling a claimed to be genuine part, $8.99 (plus shipping) on the Ebay from a USA seller.

Instruction link : http://www.focusingscreen.com/work/7den.htm

I have done easier replacement of focusing screen on my older 40D and 600D and have not done the finder focus adjustment as indicated in the 5D  maintenance manual. Nothing went wrong with focusing and metering or may be I'm just lucky. For very precision adjustment, Canon Service may be the way to go. But for $10 to $15, the risk seems very low.

Disclaimer : I have absolutely no connection with the parts provider as advertised in the link I posted above. If you considered to DIY, you may buy from Canon or the other online sources.

Lenses / Re: Do you keep all your boxes?
« on: September 21, 2014, 08:17:04 AM »
Yes, me too. I keep all boxes. BTW, if I ever buy used items, I choose only boxed items cause this is an indication that the seller(s) cares about their equipment.

EOS-M / Re: EOS M Accessory question

Found something really cool to maybe create a grip, called Sugru.
Anybody used this before? How strong is it?
www.sugru.com

You made me spend almost two hours dreaming possibilities to use this wonderful material to do some DIY projects. Thanks for letting us know about the existence of this thing.

Just wonder if one could make use of it to design some sort of weather seal on lenses, camera and battery grip etc etc.

Shot last week with EOS M and 18 55 kit lens @ 55mm F.10 in the middle of the day at Old San Juan El Morro Fort. Only a few feet away from this guy.

EOS-M / Re: Finally a 50mm for EOS-M...
« on: August 20, 2014, 12:00:10 PM »
There are hundreds of different brands/models  of manual 50mm prime lens available for M. Search the vintage arsenal and you will find some gems. All you need is an adapter.

Lenses / Re: Exorbitant repair costs, Canon Australia
« on: July 25, 2014, 08:14:48 AM »
If repair costs that much in your country, sell it online as parts (with full disclosure) and buy a white box same item. (from kit set) I assume that you can sell it for $350 and you only pay up to $300-$350 for a new/like new lens.
There are a lot of DIYers who will buy to repair it if the problem is diagnosed. The part costs $20 to $60 depending on sources.

Software & Accessories / Re: Benro heads
« on: July 18, 2014, 07:05:43 PM »
Benro ball heads B1 B2 B3 are priced at around $95, $130 and $150 respectively on the Ebay. I am looking to find one used B2 or B3 for less but cant never find one. I have a B1 for 3 years now and find it very sturdy for loading a 7D with 24 105 and it is reasonably good for it's price.
If you find one that needs to be tightened with a wrench, then it is certainly not a Benro.

Software & Accessories / Re: Rain protection for 5D3 and lens
« on: July 14, 2014, 07:06:18 PM »
I bought this rubber mask for some degree of protection but mainly  to avoid scratching. It seals some of the buttons so I assume that it will help to keep some moisture/water out.

EOS-M / Re: shutter count with Mac with EOS-M?
« on: July 05, 2014, 02:05:12 PM »
thanks..guess will have to go with ML.  The install was easy enough to follow...the uninstall was in German...not so sure of the translation....thanks..

Tor remove the boot flag, just repeat to install the ML firmware and follow the instruction : do not restart the camera.
Wait for 30 secs and the boot flag will be removed. Then format the SD card in the camera and there will be no traces of ML any more.
