If there are small strips left and right of the mirror to keep it in place, like in this image, it's done.

here is the inside of the "new" 5D

I notice that with a 32 gig card in the camera it only sees 8 gig.

In my post above it doesn't look like it has the mirror fix. I wonder if a drop of super glue on either side of the mirror would work or not.

Here's a short video of how one person fixed theirs. Turn the sound off unless you like Circus music.

I'm wondering if Gorilla glue might work better for applying drops on the outside.


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

I saw that one. I think I will wait until it loosens (maybe) in the meantime I want to see if I can find the shutter count.

You will have to send it in you Canon to find the shutter count. Not possible with any outside apps or programs.

I wouldn't start messing with the mirror. Or worry about it. On my 5D the fix hasn't been done either. The fact that it can slide out doesn't mean it has to. The mirror on my 40D came loose once during a lens switch. I pushed it back in and it never gave me trouble again.

Go out. Take pictures.

That is where I am at this point. Deal with it if it happens. Start shooting and will post some pics. I am the Head Trustee at the Seagrave Observatory (telescopes) in RI and one of the guys there is also a Canon guy and asked me "why would you buy a 5D when you have a 6Dii"

IT IS BECAUSE OF THIS THREAD!!!! I have a 6Dii and an 80D and already preordered the 90D for BIF etc. I didn't need it but wanted it and it is a good price and I wanted a camera to leave in the car all the time. I am trying it on my various EF lenses (have way too many of those) ALSO I am a camera junky!!! Hence my two 4x5 Graphics, 10 35mm film cameras (all of which I either bought new or used in the film days or were my fathers and grandfathers (Kodak folders and a box brownie) I love camera gear!!!

Here are two other oldies from when I was shooting birds with the 5Dc.

But nowadays I use it for POTN's fun threads that I participate in (weekly challenges and such), so all non-birds stuff.

You can buy the SPT software to read as well as repair the 5D. I bought it and have read the shutter count on all 3 of my 5D bodies.

As far as glues and the mirror. I wouldn't dare. Super glue will craze some plastic. It will look like a permanent white frost effect. Damaging! I wouldn't want to know what the out gassing would do in close proximity to the focus screen, sensor, etc. Other glues maybe similar. Epoxy is a safer bet.
