Do You Want to Take Your Canon EOS-1D X Mark II Apart?
« on: January 09, 2018, 03:56:34 PM »

I don’t, but Peter McKinnon did!

Before Peter sent his EOS-1D X Mark II off for repair, he decided it would be best to check out what’s inside on his own. If it’s already going for repair, I guess it doesn’t matter if you can’t put it back together… You’ve already done half the work for the Canon tech.

Hi Folks.
It is not the taking apart that is difficult, it can involve detective work to find that hidden screw or clip and to find the correct order things need to be done. It is not even that hard to put it back together again, it is diagnosing and fixing these things that is the hard part without the correct tools!  :)

Cheers, Graham.

You'd need to get a copy of the repair manual to do it correctly, especially if you're not an expert. It will tell you what to remove, how, and when, and how to put it together again (unlike all the king's horses and all the king's men with poor Humpty-Dumpty). It will also tell you what to check and what to touch to bring it inside specs - although you may need some equipment for that.

1080p at 120 fps according to Peter's videos?  He started his channel and went to 1.5 million followers in ~1 year so he may be doing something right!  Maybe also getting one arm into shape at a time?  ;)

You may have voided the warranty by taking it appart?

And also maybe because the video quality on the 1dxii is fantastic. I've never seen his other videos, so I'm not entirely sure what he uses it for.

looks well built inside.  i gave up carrying one series, years ago, but am sure my 5 has a lot more plastic inside.  for the folks wondering why he uses the pro body, the first part of the video shows him shooting from an atv on a frozen lake or something.  pretty rough environment.  looks like the right camera for that. (at the beginning of the video when he was talking about repair and opening the camera, my first thought is his atv broke through the ice and dunked the camera)

Have you noted, at 8:50, the heat pipe comming from the back of the sensor to an aluminium part on the bottom of the machine?
