Which is why I constantly try not to recommend 1D(s) series cameras for people taking pics of flowers in their back yard or child's birthday parties. These camera's are expensive to own and maintain. You can buy a 350d for the shutter cost alone!

Off topic: I wonder why Phil's status has suddenly changed to "Banned"

OP: Yes it did seem a bit too much. I'd give them one more call and ask about shutter counts on failed one. They are really nice and I am sure if previously failed that soon you'll get some consideration.

Oh come on, while not the ideal birthday party camera they are meant to last a long time. The 350D's shutter can go just the same.

agreed and because it is a 1d and is (was) sold at a way higher cost then the other cameras, one should expect it to last longer than the other models.

And it usually does. A 1D shutter is rated for a 300k average life span, while I believe that a Rebel series is rated for 50k?. As with anything mechanical though, things can break earlier or later.

actually the Rebels are rated at 100,000 but if the shutter broke I cannot imagine it costing $500 - that's more than the camera! I think Canon jacks the price up on 1Ds models just because if you can afford an expensive model why not an expensive repair bill?

The shutter on 1D and 1Ds and 5D is bigger and they are rated higher so I can see them being more expensive but $500 is way out of line. Pricing repairs higher for expensive models is nothing new though, oil changes at the BMW dealer are out of this world even if they do have synthetic oil.

I got my shutter replaced on my Mark IIn in January of 2009 shipped to the New Jersey Canon and it was $211 so I have no idea where you guys are coming up with that price. Unless it has changed ALOT since then for a price.

Come to think of it, I never remember there being a separate labor and parts charge on anything that I've had Canon do for me. It's always just been a flat fee. You may want to think about sending it into the other Canon facility.

I am the original owner of this camera. Yes I know the shutter is mechanical and subject to wear and failure. I was not expecting for the repair to be free. What I did not expect was to pay way more than others who have had the same repair done. I own four xxd's and the lone 1D MKIIN. One of the main selling points of the far more expensive 1D was the supposed durability of the shutter.

I still haven't authorized the repair even after talking to a Canon service rep who offered a 20% discount on the labor. Which brings up another point When I registered my camera after I bought it a few years ago I received a packet with stickers (and a $100 voucher for repairs that expired last year) to attach to the shipping box that was supposed to expedite the service and give me 20% off anyway.

This should give those who are considering buying an older used 1D model pause no matter how low the shutter count is. The old line used to be, "Buy it! If the shutter goes bad it's only $250 to have fixed" Sadly that is no longer true.

I think you should ask for a quote from the New Jersey one and just see what they say. For some reason it was cheaper for me to go to NJ instead of CA.

I might give that a try. Although I doubt they are open right now. I give 'em call Monday. I sent it to California because well... I'm on the west coast and thought the turn around would be quicker.

Prices vary so much from each facility I think they just make it up when you call. Someone should start a dedicated thread where people who have had shutter replacements done can list what model, the total cost, where it was done, and who they spoke with. It would be interesting to see the variances in price for these repairs.

I agree totally! Will start a thread now.
