I agree. He's the most content looking animal I've ever seen. I know that attaching human feelings and emotions to animals is kind of silly, but that frog just looks so happy!

My 7Dii recently stopped working. It would shut off while holding focus button tracking a bird. This happened in the field. Tried different lenses, with and without TCs same result. Repeated at home. I had been using it with the grip and some rechargable aa's the week before but this happened with just a regular battery. I had removed the grip for this outing as I had to hike a ways and wanted to just take one camera and one lens. So I got to the spot and the system didn't work. I had to hike back to the car and get another body!!! Crazy.

Sent it to CPS. They couldn't duplicate the problem. I spent several hours in total on the phone with their tech people. First they said it needed a circuit board then they backtracked and said it didn't and they couldn't find anything wrong with it.

Fast forward two weeks. I am in a blind watching a kingfisher with my 5DIV and THE SAME THING HAPPENS. Then the light bulb went off and I realized what the problem was, what both cameras had in common.

Any guesses?

OFF BRAND BATTERY.

I had been using them for a long time with no problems. But I then switched batteries in the 5DIV for a Canon battery and had no problems for the rest of the weekend. When Canon called me back I told them my theory. They shipped the camera back today after cleaning and servicing.

Anyone else have this issue?

Wow, that is weird. Hey, juice is juice. What could be the difference? Well, today's camera batteries also have chips. Who knows.

My off-brand batteries have never done this.

I guess time will tell with your cameras and batteries. Have you scrutinized the contacts?

My 7D2 is also broke, the main dial is malfunctioning. It still works, but takes several clicks to increment a setting. And it was getting worse each month. Off to Canon it went. Now I'm using a 77D. Not sure yet if the 77D is up to it... hoping.

I'm kinda shocked Ed... You put so much time and energy into your photography, you travel to other country's, and for less then a tank of gas you put yourself in a bad place. My wheel is starting to work much better again. I'll never send it away again unless its major. cleaning and servicing to me means filling with dirt and dust.

Never had one fail for me. What brand? I've got a few Wasabi ones, but use up my Canon ones first before I switch.

Wasabi. As I said I have used them for a couple of years with no issues so I am mystified but that is the only explanation I can come up with.

That right there is your answer Ed, battery's age and yours just came to an age were their life is over really. That same issue is why Apple slowed the processors on the iPhones of older phones. ...They were shutting down... so you have your own answer to the puzzle.

I think you are correct. It is returning today and I got a few new Canon batteries in the mail yesterday. Bite the bullet, spend the $$...

I know it feels like wasted money but really its part of the game.. and you really don't need that happening in the field with something great in front of you.

I have a few in the brown " on its last legs" in the camera battery check. I should do the same. Mine are all Canon

Valuable lessons here. I've also had my share of third-party batteries and sudden, intermittent issues with them (and it's never a good time, always seems to be just as I'm waiting for "the big race" to start). I should have learned my lesson by now - still have a few in my camera bag though...always been a slow learner :-)

I think that is a Kit Fox, not a baby coyote. I could be wrong though. Cool find!
