How to remove the rubber terminal covers on eos cameras
« on: March 21, 2014, 11:50:14 AM »
Because I have the attach several cables under an L-bracked on a eos 5DII and 5DIII I wonder if I could remove the rubber terminal covers in a nondestructive way (to cut the rubber connectors would be easy) in order to save space...

Thanks for your input!

To only turn only is not really an option since it does not save space. I really would like to fully remove them without cutting the rubber. If nobody knows an easy way I will have to call the canon service ...

Have contacted Canon now and they said that - on my own risk - it is possible to remove it by strong pulling it straight out without bending -> and it worked!!!!  Did not try to put it in again but it was not damaged...

Good job. Now just don't lose them  :)
Never look down on anybody, unless you are helping them up.

Getting them off is the easy part, the rubber stretches until it gets thinner and out that small hole the come.  pushing them back in will require a tool.

I have only tested it, not actually used it, it worked fine, just follow the manual for setting it up.
