It went to NJ. I simply did not want to risk screwing up the camera by cleaning it myself so close to this event. Now I'm laughing at that.

You could call and explain to canon that you have a photo shoot and since this was their mess up to pay for next day services there and back. Worth a phone call at least.. this is assuming you have at least 7 days between now and the shoot...

Which Canon shop did you send it to? This whole story is so pathetic. For the cost of the Copperhill kit you could clean every digital sensor your going to own in the next ten years and it takes 10 minutes. I'm sorry you had such a bad experience.

I asked, cause after reading these repair type threads for a couple years, I thought New Jersey was the better of the two. But, since Canon has a special custom function to lift the mirror and open the shutter for cleaning, and includes instructions on how to do it, it would seem they consider it one of the operations the owner can do without screwing things up too badly. I admit to being a little tense the first time I did mine, but it was a piece of cake. Personally, I think you got a lot of bad advise right in this thread.
