maintenance, peace of cake.
My Eos 40d has gone on quite a few trips with me. On my last one I guess the camera did’t like the humidity and salty water.
When trying to shoot a picture my shutter button does’t work anymore.
I read through a few nerdy blogs, that told me I have to completely dismantle my camera, in order to clean 3 tiny lamellas. Canon did one hell of a job to make sure that most people will never even think about repairing it. I have never seen the inside of a DSLR either, which made me curious, worried and sweaty at the same time. Sure taking off all parts isn’t the thing, it’s assembling all bits and bobs again.
With a bit of luck and a lot of youtube I gladly managed with only two screws left over. Wonder if they’re important. But hey, camera is as good as new, works perfectly fine again!
