How to Disable Red LED on 5D Mark II - HELP!
Jan 25, 2009

Hi all,

Ok, I've got a conundrum. I need to find a way to disable the blinking red LED to the right of the wheel on the 5D Mark II. I'm doing long night exposures and that LED keeps creating a red streak on sufficiently long enough exposures. I've tried covering it with tape, and using the supplied viewfinder cover to no avail. This leads me to believe that light is somehow leaking within the housing itself. I've seen this happen on more than just my 5D Mark II which leads me to believe it is design related. Does anyone know how to disable that LED?

Thanks in advance
