Hello I have a Canon 1DX mark 1 and here is my problem the plastic piece directly above the mirror came down, but I was able to push it right back on, I am scared that this might happen again doing a wedding or shooting event.


I would to know has anyone else had that problem, or is it something to be worried about happening again?


I looked for a parts catalog for that camera 1DX 1 to get the name of that part and couldn't find anything on it.

Are you talking about the focusing screen or some other part in the camera?
The focusing screen is user replaceable.

Sounds like the focussing screen...

Yup that is what it is... (the focus screen) So mine just pop out and it pop right back in, so should I be concerned about it coming down again?

Go get it serviced. If you're shooting weddings/events, you owe it to your clients to have properly maintained, working gear.

Yeah. So obvious, that you couldn't even think of it yourself.

The same thing actually happened to me today. I was changing lens on my 1DX Mark II, when I accidentially grabbed the camera in a way which caused the focusing screen holder to pop open.
No damage, and if you are careful, you can grab it with your fingers in the handle and put it back again, then close the holder frame without ever touching the focusing screen. Because if you do, it's toasted...

What I did was got on Youtube and watched a few videos on it, I reopened it and inspected carefully and seen to be fine. I think changes lens to fast
can cause this problem, but I don't think I have nothing to worry about.


Thanks for the suggestion..... I hope this will help anyone else who might have this problem.

Changing lenses quickly has nothing to do with the focusing screen latch. I think a quick check by Canon would be a good idea.

agree... just another thought, has the OP been using a 50mm f/1.8 mk II? ive read of instances where the back baffle on the lens moves outwards in some cases jamming the lens on the camera.
