p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 1Ds Mark II Sensor Replacement?


I need some help from the experts.

Has anyone ever had a sensor replaced in a 1Ds Mark II, if so... how much did it cost?

Here's the situation.

A customer is claiming we scratched the sensor on his camera cleaning it. The customer then had the scratch repair estimate done by another shop. The grand total? $4300.00 for a new sensor.

It's my understanding their is a piece of glass over the sensor that can be replaced without the whole sensor unit. I could be wrong.

Any insight from anyone would be great. Canon isn't able to give me that sort of information over the phone for whatever reason.


Thanks
Craig

Send it to CPS for a quote, the process is free less shipping.

Hell, you can buy the whole camera for about $3500 now on B/S.

There is a company that does filter replacements for about 500 on the 1ds mark ii. I don't have the url handy but, did find it here on FM. Do some searching on this forum, you'll come up with it.

Found it!

Awesome, thanks a ton. I think that $4300 quote from Canon was basically a new 1ds Mark II (Canadian).

Alot of Canon franchises worldwide wont touch the scratched sensor as there can be problems with dust etc. There approach usually is to change the whole sensor unit complete which is around that price. Lifepixel is the way to go as they specialize in replacing just the AA filter on the sensor. In saying this they did mine and my camera has had issues since returning..

We won't be using them, there's a local place in the Toronto area that specializes in it. It'll be around $250 - $350.

What sorts of issues have you experienced if you don't mind me asking?

Clean the sensor again in case it is a stain rather than a scratch. I once used a brush to clean a sensor and it spread some grease or something over the sensor. "Don't Panic !" came to mind, almost too late. A few more goes at cleaning fixed it completely but it was quite a scare.

My camera came back and error 99'd and couldnt be reset. Went to canon here who fortunately didnt realise someone else had been inside it and because it was such low mileage fixed it for free. It needed new boards etc. May have been incredibly bad luck but since it had only just got back, pretty unlikely! They didnt answer my emails either...

Man, lets get off the weeds - I think if the sensor is scratched, sell it on eaby for a knock off price and get a new MKIII. Thats a better deal.
