Looking at some of the pictures i've taken, I've not been too happy with more than a few. There seem to be some kind of stripes going across the photo, when taking pictures of the sky or light surfaces. Does anybody know what this is? I have found no answers in Google.
Thanks for any help.

I darkened it a little to bringes out the ''stripes'' a little more:

Some sort of lens flare? Are you shooting with a hood?

I forgot to mention, I tested this with all 3 of my lenses. They are always the exact same.

Normally, a failing shutter doesnt produce a vertical arc across the image like that...

The bad thing is, I got this as a refurb like a year ago. While going through my pics I took when I first got the camera, I see the ''stripes'' faintly in just a few of the pictures.
If it is the shutter, anybody have an idea of how much it mught cost to fix? (wife is not too happy, nor am I) :'''(

....I'm feeling like the 30Ds are all starting to die now :(

Makes me worry! My grip is already coming off, and part of me is worrying the shutter button will be next to die :(

A leaf shutter arcs. Might cost $200-300, I seem to remember reading somewhere.

Wow... How many actuations do you have on your camera? Maybe you could use the shutter count tool to figure it out.

actual shutter isn't too expensive, ~ US$50 but it would probably take an hour or so to strip & replace so you'd be paying more for labour.
