My camera been acting a little strange lately.. Its not everytime so i cant recreate it.. Sometimes when i focus on something and keep the shutter pressed down halfway.. The focus would then just quickly move quickly in and out. This is on a single shot and plus a non moving object on a tripod.. When it does this focus jitter thing the viewfinder lights (shutterspeed,ISO, and focus points) would dim at the same time. So far i only noticing it on the 17-40L. Im trying to see if it happens on my 50 1.4 to see if its the camera..
The camera is relatively new with maybe 15k shots on the shutter... weird...

What's the condition of the battery?

I think at the time it was about half charge.. But, i do see your thinking! Do some testing on a full charge battery

Are you in AI SERVO or ONE SHOT focus mode? In AI servo mode the camera is anticipating movement so it wants to change so if that's the mode you're in, change to ONE SHOT. In ONE SHOT it should only focus once as you hold the shutter obviously.

You know i thought orginally it was becuase i was in AI servo.. But, when i was trying to take some landscapes the other day i was on single shot and i noticed it..

Hi all. I am looking at getting a mk2N with 28,000 clicks for around £700. Looks clean but not mint. Do you think this is a good price? Also, do you find just 8mp restricted when printing. I do my own A4 photo prints and i do use good glass. I will be selling the EFS 10-22 later.

Buzzyrabbit,
I find the 8mp to be a huge advantage for the camera. It does awesome prints, and the body is faster at processing/ storage is less of an issue.

No one was able to answer this before, so I thought I'd post it again. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I just noticed this the other day, the 2nd outing since I got my camera back from Canon for having the shutter replaced. For some reason, when I'm shooting, my wheel won't work. When I'm in manual, I have the wheel by the shutter set to my SS and the big wheel on the back set to my aperture. The aperture doesn't change for some reason. Every now and then, it will work, but I can't seem to figure it out. And yes, the wheel on/off is ON.

Any ideas?

^^ does your back wheel work for other functions, like menu selection or focus point selection?
If it does, it means it's not a mechanical problem. I would try reseting all custom function and personal function. Even, remove the time/clock battery and start fresh. See what happen.

I know this is kind of obvious, but is the on/off switch for the wheel firmly in the "on" position? It might be just barely tripping over to off sometimes.

The switch is all of the way over. It works with everything else, but not always when in manual. It's weird. It will sometimes work, then stop, then 10 or 15 minutes later start working again. I'll try resetting and taking the battery out.

Anyone had this problem before??

Probably best to just send it to Canon and tell them the issue. If they can't spot it, that's a bit disappointing. Maybe call up and tell them, let them know it might not appear when they try but it definitely happens.

I've heard of the problem before and IIRC it was the dial on the way out.

When it doesn't work, try harder and softer pressure, or try from a different "spot".

When you had the shutter replaced, is that what you asked for, or did you ask them to review the entire camera for functionality?


moew!!!!!
