In essence, this is what happened, though the spring looks like it’s in the right place, just the pin is gone.
It’s a cheap repair, at least once you’ve done 30 steps of disassembly of something that’s probably not meant to be disassembled. It’s $200+ from Canon. And another view from someone else who had the same problem.
And, I have this sneaky suspicion that once the thing is all apart, this IR filter removal mod would not actually be that hard to do. I mean, the hard part is getting the camera apart and back together again. And an IR camera would be cool.No comments
