Any idea what is causing this ? It starts out at the bottom of the picture and continues up into the sky . Since it's happen with 2 different lens , I'm thinking it has to be the camera . Maybe the sensor ?
Image taken with a 30D .

Looks like shutter failure. Time for a trip to the repair shop.

Bummer :( . I bought it when the the 30D first came out , so I can't say I didn't get a lot of use out of it .

I'll check with Cannon and see what it will cost to fix .

Thanks

Could it be a hair or something on your sensor? As it is not a straight line, I'd think it's something on the sensor.

Woolburr is correct. That arc across the frame is a classic of symptom of a shutter whose time has come.

Yep....almost certainly a shutter failure. It usually starts to become visible at faster shutter speeds at first and eventually it will completely fail.

I don't think I'd spend a penny to fix a 30D at this point. Your are right, you did get your money's worth out of it already and the improvements in Canon cameras since the 30D have not been insignificant.

I don't know your financial situation, or what you use the camera for; but I'd use this as an excuse to upgrade. Lots of good deals on used 5DIIs right now, or a new 5DIII or 7D would both be really nice.

Shutter repairs typically run $160-$225. They will inspect and give you a quote for free. If the repair price is too high, the Canon Loyalty Program is an option. You can trade it in on a newer model for a substantial savings. Only costs involved in the estimate is the cost of shipping it to them. Definitely worth seeing what they have to say.

I have a number of images like this .Looking back at my images , it looks like it's been doing it for awhile . On some of the older images , one really has to be looking for it to see it . But on the images from this soccer game , it really stands out .

$160-$225 doesn't sound bad . Until I get it fixed , I'll just break out the old Xt ;) .
