For those who somehow are able to move their mode dial accidentally, or are able to wear it down, Canon is now offering a chargeable service to ‘upgrade’ the mode dials on your EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D digital SLR cameras with a center-lock mechanism. This central lock-release button design was first introduced on the EOS 60D.

For those who somehow are able to move their mode dial accidentally, or are able to wear it down, Canon is now offering a chargeable service to ‘upgrade’ the mode dials on your EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D digital SLR cameras with a center-lock mechanism.

This optional modification is intended to prevent the Mode Dial from jumping into other positions once set to a particular exposure mode by the user. In order to switch modes, the user must depress and hold the central lock-release button before the Mode Dial can be turned.

On Canon DSLRs, a mode dial with central lock-release was first introduced on the EOS 60D.

The price to replace your 5D2 or 7D’s dial will set you back US$100, or SG$140.
