Way Cool. By the way, what does the toe-tag say?

Anybody got a busted 70-200 IS to try this on?


Somewhere on the 'net, somebody has disassembled and repaired a 70-200 IS. IIRC, it was a defective IS unit that he changed. I don't remember the link, but I do remember seeing it.

Somebody else mentioned the absence of the DiGICII processor. I'm going to look around more this weekend and see if I can find it. There may be a circuit board or two I haven't pulled the metal shielding off of yet.

The toe-tag lists my repair number, name, date and camera type and serial number. Some info has been blurred to protect the innocent.

Damn that hurts. Looking at that gives me the creepy crawlies. Boy that salt water sure does a number on things doesn't it.

I must be just as big a geek as you though. I have taken dead high tech toys apart to see what makes them tick too.

Fascinating display, Gary. Thanks for the 'tour'. It's kind of funny to see the Sony name in the midst of all that Canon hardware, and yes, after looking at all of this I understand why these things cost so much. Sort of.

I've added more photos to the gallery. These are of the Digic chip as well as the front and rear of the circuit board on which it's installed. I've placed them in the series where they belong chronologically.

Still gotta see what I can get for the other requested shots. Hopefully this weekend.

Thank you for sharing this with us.

I found it very interesting.

I love to see the inside and workings of electronics. But, I'm not gonna take apart my camera just to quench my curiosity!

kinda wierd that the chip in DPR's review says "Digic II", but the one in you pics doesn't eh?...........makes me wonder if we all got what we paid for.

your picture postings are awesome...............let's see you put it all back together..........

thx

one question, is the sensor sealed to the frame behind the shutter?

Unless I'm missing a bit, it looks like there aren't too many critical parts located in the right grip of the body. They should change the form factor of the next rebel to resemble the AE-1. I'd buy one just because it looks cool.

very cool. thanks for this!

Look at that corrosion. Wow. Given the condensation threads that are going on now, this is a great resource. True, this is sort of worst case - a salt water dunking, but very instructive to those discussions as well.
