  • Where is this magical slider?? I only see one in the 7D mark i. Not in the mark ii. Have you legitimately used this camera or is this just seo? If so, can you post a photo rather than just words? Please.

    • Agree, this is just copy-pasted fluff. There's no compartment in the 7DmkII like there is in the original 7D. Not sure how to change the cmos battery in this camera, it's not mentioned at all in the instruction manual.

  • Matthew Lala above is quite correct. The instructions are for the 7D and not the 7D Mk II. The CMOS battery is now attached to the PCB board (?) and has no user access. The main camera battery / (ies) apparently trickle feed the CMOS battery and if you remove the main battery to store your camera, i.e. if not being used for a good while, the CMOS battery allegedly and eventually 'dies' and needs to be sent back to Canon Service Depot for replacing.
