The shutter has definitely gone to Canon heaven.
It's dropped a blade and what you are seeing is the blade across the image.
The circles are where the rivets have torn away.
Over the years, I've done three in various bodies.
If you lift up the mirror - you won't do any damage - and you'll see it.
Here's what my 1D MkII looked like

Edit...
Sorry, missed the post where you had figured it out.
Anyway, someone might find this useful.

Thanks - that puts a face on the problem. That is exactly what hers looked like.

Tried another lens? I am guessing the aperture ring is out of position

And you are 100% correct. A crinkled shutter blade

I think that the OP has already noticed a loose shutter blade.

He can try as many lenses as he likes, but it isn't going to fix the shutter blade that has torn loose from the rivets.

It's not Adorama's problem.

I'm very sorry to hear of this situation. I had an XTi that I would of donated, but I already gave it away. Maybe you could put your story on the buyers thread or a different thread looking for help. Someone like me, may donate their old camera to the cause? Just a thought.

It's not Adorama's problem.

details are a little fuzzy as this was was a couple of years ago. somehow I remember that a "firefighter/ems worker?" purchased a lens that turned out to be stolen during a commercial burglar and the authorities found out he got it through an internet listing and confiscated it. the members of this or another forum took up a collection for him to replace the lens. someone at adorama, could have been Helen, stepped up to the plate and offered a replacement lens to him at a fantastic price.

I live in nyc I can go to any of the super camera stores in midtown but because of what adorama did I give them most of my business.

i have heard plenty and I mean plenty of sob stories in my career as a nyc police officer, if you gave me a real, really real good sob story 99.9% of the time I let em off with a warning or tried to help em. is this girl really sick I don't know.is its Helens problem or adoramas ? absolutely not. can they work as a team do something? I don't know it never hurts to ask. your feelings might be if the answer is no, but they aren't going to reach through the monitor and drag you into cyber space and beat you up!
a member asked for help and that's what I did I gave a suggestion, adorama is a multi million dollar operation lets just say someone comes in with a nice rebel series camera or even a xxD on trade. they offer it to this sick girl at a great price or even possibly donate it to her, their hometown paper picks up the story and runs it, to me that's a great public relation story and guess what for a inexpensive rebel or an xxd series camera adorama looks like a "superstar" and who knows because of their generosity adorama picks up a few customers who can drop thousands of dollars on equipment because the local folks have no more brick and motor stores in their town that deal with high end electronics

A young friend brought her camera to me (Canon Xsi) and asked if I knew what was going on. She got about 50 shots like this before getting an Error 99. Obviously something is detached. She has some pretty severe medical problems and her camera means the world to her. Any ideas?

No idea at this stage whether we can do anything to help, but please do email me with more info: Helen@adorama.com (external link)
