Help please!!! What can that white stripe on the upper part of the shot be? Suddenly my Canon 1D MKIII started, every now and then, to have such a problem. Always in the same position. Sometimes stronger (like this one) sometimes fainter. It isn't a lens problem because I've already checked! Thanks for any suggestion! Carlo

The shutter failure examples we've seen in the past usually show an arc of light, but that's not to say it couldn't be a shutter issue.

Is it still under warranty? If so, send it in for repair. Even if it's not, you might want to send it in along with some example images.

Shutter bounce, I'm afraid. That's what shutter trouble tends to look like on mark II and mark III models. It's probably more noticeable at high shutter speeds, which is why it seems to be "every now and then".

Time to pack it off to Canon (I hope that it's still under warranty).

Thank you guys!!! As I had the sub mirror fixed four months ago, and Canon gave an extra year to all those who had the camera fixed, it should be under warranty!!!!

Just to be clear. Going on the original post, you are saying that Canon replaced a shutter in a 1DMKIII in one day? hjs

That is what I was wondering?!? Even you you live directly across the street from the Service Center, that seems pretty impressive. :confused:

I've always wanted an excuse to move to Italy. I think this should do it. :smile:

Wait a minute. I don't own a 1D MKIII. Hmmmm. I might have a hard time selling this to my wife.
