Probably fixable, send it to canon and see what they say. Even if it ends up costing you a grand to fix it is still worth having it done - either that or you can shell out 3 grand for a MKIII.
cant get the link to work for some reason but anyway what happened was that the is a thick wite stripe across the centre of all my shots now i tryed changing lenses swaping memory cards & even changing batterys but nothing sorted it any ideas what the problem could be
i like the idea of a Mark 3 but im affraid thats not going to happen thanks for the reply any m8.
back to Canon I think; btw if it has been an issue with this model Canon may fix it FOC or at least at a reduced rate as happened to me recently with a camera well out of warranty.
Generally if its terminal you'll know about it. I suspect that theres a processing error (does the same thing happen, in the same place on ever image by the way??) and the camera will just need a new imaage processing board or something - probably a few hundred quid. The very worst would be a new sensor at around a grand but if it were that then I would be surprised.
Sadly (for you) there has been no history of this sort of thing on the MKIIN's, I have used a pair of them since they were launched and so have most of the togs I know, and none of us know of any such issues.
thanks for the swift replys well good news is i have just remembered when i purchased the camera from jessops i let them do a protection plan for it Phew!! i hope its worth the paper its writen on, so have been told to package it up & a courier is picking it up from a company called vidicam tomorrow hope they are good & quick as i have the super league grand final to shoot next saturday somehow tho i think i might be watching it on sky now with a beer
They'll fix it but they'll take AGES!! Expect to be without it for a month or more.
If you have problems once the RPP expires then send it direct to canon - last time I had a camera serviced I sent it in on tuesday, had it back friday morning.
Looks like a broken shutter.
Here's a couple of examples.
Interesting to see Canon fixed the camera free of charge on the second example even although it was out of warranty. I wonder if he mentioned to them it wasn't that rare a problem according to the Internet?!
thats it exactly in example 1 great info ty is a broken shutter an expensive thing to fix ? or do they replace it all together.
They replace the unit, i think it's around £600 if you have to pay.
