Hey guys, I need your help.

I think I have a problem with my 1D. After every charge or refresh, I put the battery back into the camera and it shows a full battery (obviously). When I press the shutter button like I'm taking a picture, the battery icon blinks and the camera shutts off. This is within seconds of taking it off the charger and only happens when I go to take a picture.

Is this an electrical problem with the camera or a dud for a battery?

Thanks for your help,

Benjamin

More than likely the battery contacts or the battery is at fault, test the battery with a voltmeter or string a 12v bulb over the contacts should be nice and bright . If battery checks out good check the contacts in the camera body ,use good light or a torch to see in .I have had the odd isuse with the battery fitment and sometimes have to install the battery a couple of times before it will make a good contact.

I have had the same issue as you, but I was lucky enough to buy my 1Dc with 6 Batteries (2 Canon & 4 independent). They all worked when I first got the 1D, but now 2 of the independant's do the same thing as yours. My best Battery by far is a High Capacity 2200 (no Brand information on it) which lasts really well.

Try the checks suggested by Steveod, if you happen to know someone else with a 1D or 1DMk2 (same Battery) ask if you can try one of their Batteries. Buy an Independant Battery to try if you can't borrow one. Just buy 1 at first, there's no point shelling out big bucks on a load of them if the fault is with your 1D! If it works then you could Buy some high Capacity Bateries.

I forgot to mention , and I don't know if it makes a difference, but it works flawlessly with the dc couple. I think It's time for a new battery.

That's a shot battery, for sure. Both of my Canon-branded batteries have gone south and create the same symptoms. Since it works with the coupler, you know it's not the camera.

Hit up Amazon and order one or two of the Lenmar brand replacements. They seem to be fueled by magic or something. I was able to take ~250 shots at a wedding with the 1D and a single Lenmar battery, and it showed half full when I got home.

Wow! That's some stellar battery life! Could you provide a link to the specific battery that you achieved that with? I want to make sure I get the right one ;)

Thanks,

Benjamin

Some of the reviews talk about poor fitment. I can tell you that this is true, to a point. The issue lies with the latching mechanism and weather seal...they just don't fit as well as the OEM batteries.

To solve this issue, remove the end cap, it's only held on my two little screws, iirc, and then swap it with one of the caps from your Canon batteries that bit the dust. Although you can get them to work without doing this, trust me, it's much easier after switching the caps.

They're SO much better than OEM and WAY cheaper.

Unfortunately, I don't have any original canon batteries. So, do you think I should opt for a legitimate Canon, or go with these?

If your current batteries fit easily with no problems, meaning you can slide the battery in and turn the lock knob without undue force, then you should be able to swap the cap just as you would with an OEM battery.

I would never pay the 70 bucks Canon wants for an OEM battery that is inferior to the aftermarket option.

Okay, will do. Thanks for the very helpful info, Vitro!

All the best,

stopping by to see how all the 1Dc owners are doing. Miss my 1D and will probably pickup another one soon (either that or an 85mm f1.8 USM) after the holidays.
