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  :)
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

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.
