Err80

Had the 1DX for about 2 days.. and i keep getting this Err 80 thing randomly the first day i picked it up.

cant believe it happens to the Canon top of the line camera.. this err 80 came up about 20 times in two days..

anyone has any ideas how to fix it?

I was having a photo shoot today, and it happened again.... 10 times in a row...

so i took out the batteries. and re inerst it.... still get the same err 80 . the camrea wont operate at all.

so i had to cancel the rest of the photo shoot.. when i came back home an hour later.. i opened the 1DX , it worked again....

it's not a paid photo session. it was mainly to test out the 1DX. so i had only one body with me.

used factory battery , canon lens, lexar and sandisk compact flash.!!!

Might be master of the obvious here, but have you tried Canon support? With a brand new expensive camera you shouldn't have to do your own troubleshooting.

i was having a photo shoot all day long.. and the err80 came up at 9PM this evening... i didn't even finish the shoot!!! so pissed....

i will call Canon tomorrow ... but i think all i get is the sort of general answer..and i might have to take it to canon for them to take a look....

i was thinking of exchange for a new one... but i don't think the vendor will have a new one to give me ...

Are you usung an eye-fi card? Just asking because I did a quick search of err 80 and that seemed to be the common issue.

Certainly a dam shame happening with a new camera but stuff happens.

However, your obviously shooting professionally and as such, you should have back-up equipment.

You might be pissed at having camera problems but if I was your client, paying you to take photos, I'd be pissed at you for not having backup gear.

Eye-Fi cards wont fit the 1dx. The 1dx has two CF cards slots, not a cf/sd combo =p

Maybe it's a lens problem, try a different lens and see if you still get the same errormessage.

Well looking at the newer camara's error 80 is the same for all so probably the same for 1dx

Err 80 Malfunctions related to the electric control or images have been detected.

and searching the web, looks like circuit board is the main suspect/problem.... I would send back for replacement

One other issue with Error 80 has been around memory cards..... Format your cards on the computer then insert into camera and format again.... Worth a try....

What kind of pro doesn't carry backup equipment on a paid shoot with a client.......even a Rebel body would have sufficed.

Anyway, I would try formatting in-camera see if that helps
