Just received my refurb'd 7D. A test shot reveals evenly spaced vertical lines that rotate from vertical to horizontal as the camera is rotated. The card came from my 50D, and the shots from the 50D show no lines...Any ideas?

How extreme of a crop is that?

Doubt that the lines are caused by extreme cropping. It is too precise and uniform.

It's a tight crop...maybe 100%. The lines are visible on the LCD screen. Dunno if there's some sort of filter that's able to be turned off, but I've never seen that in 3 Canon DSLR's I've had...

I'm thinking that I might just take it down to the Canon Service Facility in Jamesburg...'bout an hour south of me. It's under warranty, and I've got a Gold CPS membership...

I would do that...that's really bizarre. The only way my 7D would show that sort of thing is if those lines were part of the object being shot :|

If I'm in Photoshop at like 200-300% and I were to take a screenshot then I would get lines like that.

Wouldn't you get both vertical AND horizontal lines, though?

This is RIGHT out of the box, Mashimaro. Doubt if it's anything to do with outside interference, as my 50D would probably also be affected.

Professorman...time and aggravation lead me to prefer to do a face-to-face with the techs at Canon, the drive isn't much, especially as I'm about 2 miles from their facility once each week anyway...

As far as returning it...better the devil you know than the devil you don't? As a refurb, there might be be a chance of getting another/different problem. I'll just let the folks at the repair facility go over it...

Thanks for the thoughts, all!
Don

Did you check to see if HTP and ALO were both turned off?

That's short for Highlight Tone Priority and Auto Lighting Optimizer. Find both in the menu and disable them (if they're not already disabled) and repeat the test and see if that makes any difference. If not, then take the camera back to the mothership.

Have you cleared all the Custom and Personal settings? I got a new 50D a long time ago and it was having some serious issues communicating with my 580ex II. I cleared out all the settings and it worked perfect from then on.

Also, you may try formatting the CF card on your computer, then format it on the camera, then do another test shot.

I tend to try restoring things and formatting them before sending it back. If that camera was refurbished, then it was tested, and it may not have been restored before it was shipped out.

Best of luck!
