Mirror Cushion Foam

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

The Mirror Cushion Foams for my Canon AE-1 and Canon T-80 cameras need to be replaced. Any idea as to what camera repairers charged ?What are the proper dimensions of these foams and what kind of adhesive is used to attached them to the cameras ?

Last I had it done on my F-1N it was part of a full CLA with replacement of all the light seals and the cost was around $50-60. The light seals are made of the same foam as the mirror foam, so it's a good idea to have it all replaced at once.

The foam is usually sold in self-adhesive sheets of varying thicknesses. If you want to try doing it yourself, you can purchase it from www.micro-tools.com.
