Surapon, I love your ideas! Very practical, very down to earth. You are the true engineer! Much respect.Hi,
So I shoot most of my work tethered to a laptop. Unfortunately the usb connector on the camera has gotten loose, it still works fine if the camera is steady on a tripod and not moving at all. But for situations where I like to move the camera a bit around in between shots i often loose my connections.
My options as I see it is.
1) Get it repaired, does anyone know what this costs? and time. I am based on the Canadian west coast if that makes any difference.
2) Get the wifi grip, i can then tether with wifi, or its built in usb or ethernet ports, correct?. Currently watching a few on ebay to see what they go for.
3) buy used mk2 or new 6d. Will have to hold back on this purchase till end of january. my mk2 does have around 110000 clicks so it is getting old.
If you have any knowledge, advice or thoughts regarding my situation it would be much appreciated.
Here is my 10 Cents DIY. that might solve your problem.
