I dropped my 40D from about a feet in the air. Although I expected the camera to take the fall but it didnt. Now when I press the shutter the mirror only goes up a fraction and not fully preventing the sensor from seeing anything. The autofocussing and everything else seems to be fine.
I am gonna visit Canon service center soon but I just wanted to ask you guys, is it a major damage?
To me it just looks like something related to mirror up mechanism has been dislocated but my concern is that in tryin to repair it, the technician doesnt introduce additional bugs like front/back focussing or may play spoil sport with the dust control system?
Are their any adjustment screws for the sensor mounting or for auto focussing system in 40D?
What all shall I check for or keep in mind when I receive my camera?
Thanks in advance!
