From the bottom

From the bottom

Looking at the body from the bottom. Note the empty battery compartment on the left of the image above. Also, the bigass capacitor on the right.

Again, thanks to www.customslr.com/technical/EOS_20D_Parts%20Catalog.pdf for the exploded view parts catalog that was the road map for this dissection.

That's what I figured too, Martin. The capacitor is 330v, 240uF.

I can see only one reason to have a big capacitor like that in the camera. It's a high voltage cap that stores the energy for the flash. What is it's V and uF rating?

Notice the test probe landing pad array below the lens mount used for automated testing.
