Looks like shutter bounce. These are probably at high shutter speeds, right? Unfortunately it's going to require a trip to Canon to fix.


I'm taking pictures of everything, so go ahead and take this place away from me.

I remember Belmondo's 1DSII did this as well (I think his camera had less than 5K actuations on it)...it was the shutter & it was over a year old. I think he argued them into replacing it though, because of the low mileage on the camera. It would be worth a try anyway..

You need to frame your shots a little lower so your paper roll doesn't show.

youre going to trash a 1500 dollar camera for a 300 dollar part? wish i had money like that to throw away. PM me if you want to give the camera away to someone who would fix it.

if you keep using it and the problem gets worse, it can come apart and damage the sensor.

Bummer, would hold Canon to at leat half of the repair costs if possible, 40k is LOW use.
You wouldn't have this problem if you had slow lenses Malla :rolleyes:

I was lucky that mine was under warranty when my shutter went, images looked exactly like yours.

They replaced the shutter and the motor drive, now they have it back because of AF problems.
