Are you going to return your 5D3 for the light issue?

Just wondering if all of you that bought the new 5D3 are going to send it back. Will canon fix this problem for us? Do all the canon cameras do this?

No way. I love my 5D3. It doesn't affect shooting and it's not a real problem. I hope this is not another thread about the leakage issue...yada yada... The other thread was closed already.

Nope, this is an issue that will never affect me. When shooting I will just have the top LCD light off, simple. (I almost never use it anyways... I can see all my settings in the view finder and I have most of the buttons already memorized)

I made a video last night in full darkness, when I replayed it backwards at double speed I heard satanic music and the outline of the devil popped up on the screen.

Unfortunately I can't show this video as it was deleted immediately in the interests of all mankind.

doesn't it only happen when you don't have a lens on and the body cap on? I think people are going out of their way to try and find problems.

It depends whether the next wedding I shoot requires me to shoot with the lens cap on.

Why? It's not an issue. Look at the update from Canon Rumors

I think he said virtually all other Canon bodies act the same way.

I am curious, do you do that when they are all dressed in black?
Wouldn't be easier to just leave the camera home? ;)


just a few of my thoughts...

I just googled to see what the fuss was about.
Who does this crap anyways?
