Anyone know much about theassembly of canon cameras, specifically the 6d, though I think others will be similar?
Mine has a problem with the bottom contact of the 4 way switch inside the rotary control ( bottom right as you hold the camera) everything else is working but it failed yesterday on a job and left me with out easy access to my lower focus points and zoom movement in review.
I would assume the part isn't very expensive, but wonder if it's a big disassembly job to fit? High costs might make it easier to get another camera than fix this one as its done me proud already.
Depending on the shutter count and age of the camera and whether you brought it to tne UK or you bought it in tne UK then Canon and the retailer may well be obliged to repair it free of charge. It can't be that old as they were only released about 2 and a half years ago...
Sounds obvious but have you tried googling your issue? My 6d has never skipped a beat and hoping it remains that way
My 6d has never skipped a beat and hoping it remains that way
He's got a button that's broken after a couple of years of use, I personally think that qualifies as fair wear and tear, not some inherent design fault (this is a consumer camera remember, it's not designed for heavy regular shooting).
My original point had been to see if anyone knows how easy it is to get a 6d apart, as checker says - I've a button that's gone wonky and my pair of 6d have been working bloody hard for over two years! The consumer tag means that they aren't fully weather sealed and whilst leaning over a balcony above a crowded dance floor at a reception ( in the apex of a high ceiling hall in very hot conditions) I know a drop or two of sweat got into the switch and has probably messed it up. Ideally I'd like to have whipped the machine apart and dropped another ( probably inexpensive switch part ) into the camera, but will have to wait now until off season for a service and repair.
Google is your friend.... https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Canon_EOS_6D Good luck with it.... If you are using your cameras professionally though I wouldn't attempt a professional repair job yourself as you can't afford to be on a job and it fails on you... so bluntly speaking don't be tight and get Fixation to fix it for you!
