So the mirror fell out of my girlfriend's 60D. I contacted Canon and they mentioned it would be repaired if under warranty, but it isn't. Anyone else have this happen to them? I know 5DCs have this issue, but I've never heard of it happening on a 60D.

Which country are you in?

If you're somewhere with decent consumer protection laws then it should be repaired for free (assuming you didn't cause the failure by doing something silly like trying to clean the mirror). :D

If you're in the USA :(

If you're in the US, you just have to be polite, use a bit of phone sugar, and work your way to somebody that matters. That usually gets the job done.

I don't imagine this will cost much so just bite the bullet and send it in.

I've never heard of that happening with the 60D but it can't be too old so I would also 'politely' raise issues with a Canon repair center even though it's past a warranty date

Canon estimates the repairs to be $224. I think that's a bit ridiculous. I'm going to call them in the morning.

If you paid by credit card, check your credit card company as many include an extra warranty period at no charge. My Mastercard would have added a year for instance. Some double the original, so if something comes with a 90 day, you get a 180 day.

Check with Garry's camera repair or if you have a local camera shop. I'm sure this would be an easy fix for them and it wouldn't cost what Canon charges.
