Hey all , got the quote back from cannon , well i have to pay for my shutter replacement, but cest la vie,

Quote was still 300 dollars less than expected ,

so IF connector board and IF assemby and Shutter Replacement and Labour came to 1041.03 nz dollars including tax which is 801.50 Canadian dollars or 775.32 Us dollars.

incedently part number are

CG2-1505-000 - pcb I/F for eos1dmk2
CG2-1162-000 - shutter unit for eos1dmk2
CG2-1756-000 - Connector assembly for eos1dmk2
CG2-1755-000 - I/F terminal assembly for eos1dmk2

when i questioned the repair centre about 1dmk2 HUH i have a 1dsmk2 apparantly most of the pcb and connectors and shutter are shared with the 1dmk2 although this confuses me with the shutter assembly because the 1dmk2 is no full frame and the 1ds2 is , so i asked to talk to the tech and got their head tech here in NZ and he assured me and gave me a 6month warranty on my repair for th econenctors and a 12 month or 200k actuation waranty on the shutter replacment.

oh and as a break down the labour cost was 120.00 per hours nzdollar x 4 units so most of the cost was the labour incedently shutter parts were 266.00 excl tax.

just thought i'd share with you all:cool::cool:

yeah, would be nice to get 120 an hour, if i did i would have just about every L lense under the sun, i bet they dont get paid that much , hmmmm - home diy camera business anybody, when i spoke to the canon guys the said you can order any part wholesale from them , so all you would need is a good technical background , any body know a good electrical engineer,

In all honesty working with electronics is not as scary as it sounds, it just takes some guts and the knowledge that if you break it more, you will pay a lot more or perhaps even just ruin the whole dang thing and have to buy another.

I had a problem on my dad's 60 inch Sony television which had a bad thermal fuse, incidentally the fuse was defective in a lot of models, but Sony's local dealer wanted something on the order of $400 to send a tech for a $20 part. I ended up elbow deep in a $4,500 tv at the time and it was only a year and a half old.

I can't imagine that the camera is overly complicated if you are careful in disassembly and document your steps well so you know what you did, but the risk of not getting something right is definitely greater than having a trained technician do it for you.

To each their own, I know I wouldn't delve into my 1D MkIIn though, the sensor is way the heck down in there.

I had a look at some diagrams to take the 1ds apart , but stopepd when i saw you need to unsolder the shielding portions once the back is off , as my soldering iron is a big ham fisted thing and you would need a very presise and usable soldering iron with good heat and thin point , not my ham fisted job that takes an hour to warm up (not really but almost)

I've been following this thread drooling over the pictures and possibilities. When I decided I wanted to go full frame and I started looking I figured it was going to be a 5D classic that would take me there. But when my wife said, "why settle for less than you want?" I started looking for either a 5D II or a 1Ds II and much to my delight just ended up with a good deal on a 1Ds II!
Now the waiting begins as my nose will be pressed against the window waiting for the delivery truck to arrive next week.
I'll try my best to do this camera justice.

I look forward to posting pics soon.
Sid

WTG, Sid! ;)

Looks like you've got some nice glass to go with the camera, once it arrives!

Welcome aboard!

Cheers!

Ha! :D

Hey! I never got no dang key? :(

Anyway, I picked up a flash diffuser today. I got the Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce. It seems to do a pretty good job of softening up the flash and giving off a nicer tone then just using the flash without it.

Here's a test shot with it, hand held with the 24L...
