Thread: AF screen

    Default AF screen

    Hi All,

    Do anyone here ever clean or replace your DSLR AF screen by yourself or do you sent it to the service centre? How much?

    I think you are talking about the focussing screen.
    I can change my 5D focussing screen myself as it is easily detachable.
    But there is on additional step for the 50D that requires screwing.
    Thus for convenience sake, I send both to the camera shop to change right on the spot.
    About $55 each.
    (P.S. I am not sure about the 500D, but I reckon it would be fairly similar.)

    as above says....depends on the camera models.

    try doing an internet search as chances are someone may have uploaded a step by step guide for your camera model.

    getting it done at the service center is still the safer way since anything **** up, its covered.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    I believe you're refering to Canon DSLR? If so you may go to the Canon Showroom at Vivocity to purchase and change the focusing screen.
    Fujifilm X-Pro2 Graphite, X-Pro1
    XF 14/2.8, 18/2, 23/2, 35/1.4, 56/1.2, 60/2.4, 55-200/3.5-4.8

    I go to The Camera Workshop.
    But I have to pre-order both the focussing screen and then go down once the stock comes in.
