  • Appreciate your detailed explanations.  Seems to make sense to me because I also had some inconsistencies with it closing down that didn't seem "right".  I'd be interested in your conclusions ...
  • Sorry, the URL didn't copy. Try again.
  • Today I filmed the issue.  In the attached clip, you can see the iris opening and closing as I moved in front of the camera.  I was wearing a white tee shirt, so I am assuming that, as I moved, ...
  • The mystery deepens ... based on some comments, I did some further testing with Program, TV and AV modes and the diaphragm opens and closes on all three modes!  The only mode that has it fixed is ...
  • No.  The continuous focus is off in the MENU system.  I switched that off when I bought the camera - that's another crazy design flaw.  Would the exposure be related to the focus system being used?

  • Great. Hope it works out. I still use my capture clip on my belt - just a little more careful now. I also the Peak Wrist strap because I don’t like dangling cameras.
  • Hi Julian, Yes, I called Canon Canada and ordered the spare part. It took them a while to ship it, so I would get on it tomorrow and ask them to fast ship. I think they shipped it from the HQ in ...
  • Good question.  I don;t have an R but I do  have an RF and have had no problems.  However, I am a lot more careful now that it happened to the EOS M5.
  • Hi All, Thanks for replying to this old thread.  I did glue it all back together and it worked well until I got my new baseplate from Canon Canada.  It cost me all of $8 CAN or something like ...
