  1. hi FixyourcameraORG my camera fell into water but i opened it and clean it i put it on and it was on but only the Top Cover LCD Window comes on not the LCD Display Screen Monitor i tried to take a shot but the Top cover LCD window says error please i need help

  2. I would like the canon 6d have a start / stop button underneath the body. you think you bring him an extra connection from the button contacts to another microswitch I can get out of the body ??

  3. Teardown Nikon D5300 and Nikon 35mm 1.8.

    Both of them were exposed to rain unfortunately, the DSLR survived [or so I think] but lens did not do so well. It does not autofocus anymore 🙁 – would like to see how I can fix it.

  4. +Randy Levine Hi Randy (please turn on comments, I can't reply to you directly), I would love to make them all day, can't do it unfortunately, my time is very limited…
    D750 is coming, just not sure when it will happen, I am looking for one in good condition at the right price.

    Cameras are like Lego blocks, the only thing you have to be careful about are adjustments – it's important to avoid touching some parts. Cars are very different with all those mechanical parts, seals (there are real seals, not "weather resistant" BS type seals:))
    Thanks for your kind words, I appreciate your suggestions!:)

  5. Kudos to Canon, at least it is still made in Japan.
    Used once a micrometer screw gauge for a Pentax DSLR to adjust the distance, the correct value is written in the service manual, so far the new owner did not complain. ;)

  6. Brilliant video, and I agree — weather sealing is a marketing BS stunt to whoo people. Guess what kills electronics… it's humidity!!! Sure… it can stand snow and rain… bring it into a warm room and watch corrosion happen.

  7. Another great video Mike… not too impressed by the build on the Nikon or Canon dslr's so far. I'm going to be real interested if you are ever able to get your hands on an Olympus E-M1 or E-M5 to see how well they're made and how good their weatherproofing is. I have an E-M5 Mark II and I hope it's built as well as it feels.
