p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Glue for 5D mirror


Canon wants over $200 to glue my 5D mirror back on. I am going to take my camera back and do it myself. What kind of glue do you guys recommend?

Pondering if I should shave it too while it's out to make it work better with my FL 55/1.2.

If your mirror fell out it is covered under the general recall they issued on all Canon 5D's years ago. I just picked up a used spare for my wife 2 weeks and ago and as they always have they reglued the mirror at no cost even though it had not fallen out yet. They also install additional metal support braces. Why would they want to charge you to do this? Is the camera modified such as a shaved mirror or something like that.

My brother in law has a 5d and the mirror fell off. It was replaced FOC by Canon UK.

Thanks guys. I just called Canon and after some waiting they acknowledged it was a mistake on their behalf and they will fix it for free.

I took a kind of slow super glue. I know this is not recommended by all because of the solvents used.
With this super glue I glued a 100% silver mirror inside the EOS 5D instead of this 60% normal mirror.
