Question about Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II Digital Camera
The green viewfinder information is out of focus and there is a reflection of the actual view through the lens in the base of the viewfinder. Also the viewfinder lever does not work properly and if I turn the diopter adjustment wheel this seems to affect the viewfinder display and not the image itself, which cannot be seen in focus through the lens.
There is a rattle from the mirror housing so something has obviously come loose.
I have owned 5 Eos 1's and never come across this before ?
Is there a way for me to get inside the housing to fix this ?
I would not attempt to open the camera for any sort of fix. It has weather seals in place and would recommend sending it in to Canon. If you have any warranties left it would void these. Lastly this is a high proformance bit of kit and you want to get is seen to by an Authourised Canon Dealer.
As for the diopter adustment. To be able to see through the view finder and see your subject clearly, take of the lens cap aim the camera and turn the little dial until the screen inside the viewfinder is clear it should not be fuzzy. You are only looking at the screen/gring and not the image beyond. This does not affect your image but does effect how clearly you see your subject through the viewfinder.
Hope this helps
