This happened for the first time last night at a wedding. I thought it was the card so I changed it. Only a few frames were like this. This morning, I had a shoot. Different cards and 2 frames were like this. Anyone know what is causing it? I am using a 5D3.

Is it a RAW file?

I had a few similar RAW files with some quadrants being all magenta. When I downloaded them through a different card reader they were ok.

yes it's a RAW file. Any idea why it's happening? Processor maybe? It recorded this way to both cards I was shooting on.

It's a corrupted file. It can be a bad card, bad transfer, bad drivers, bad camera. As this is happening on different cards you might start the debugging process looking at the transfer. Check readers, cables, drivers and such.

Also, is just the embedded jpeg smashed or is the raw file itself smashed? Open it in arc or whatever you are using for raw conversions and take a look at the image.

I once had a simmilar issue when I used an el-cheapo cardreader.
Now I use a USB 3 cardreader from a well known brand and never had this issue.
In my case it was the low quality cardreader.

It shows while in the camera too so I dont think it's a card reader issue.

If it shows in the camera it means that the embedded jpeg in the raw file is smashed. It might be good news as the raw file itself could possible be ok. As this happened to two cards, it could be card or camera. Per chance, are the cards Lexar? I have 2 cameras that have always had issues with Lexar cards doing the same thing you are seeing.

They are transcend cards. I'm just glad it's only a few images

Does it happen with both cards? Try to have an SD and a CF card and see whether they both get the same problem. If it happens to both, then it is a camera problem. If it happens to one, say the SD, try debugging the SD side (different brand cards, different reader, use the camera USB connection).

Let us know what happened.
