That does look like a symptom known to be a dying shutter.

THIS is why chimping is not always a bad thing! Imagine one was shooting a wedding professionally and they never noticed it and and kept on shooting instead of switching over to a backup body. Oh the humanity.

@ Zilly: Just wondering, how many actuations have you done with that camera?

My 1Ds II just went in to Canon today for a similar over exposed line at the top of the frame.

About 65,000 on mine.

Technically, the shutter isn't quite dead. ;) But it is showing definite signs of dying...
