I think my 1DMKII shutter has died. I have the dreaded white streaks across photos and black diagonal bars as well. Wanted to get some thoughts from members here on a few things.

1. What have you paid for shutter replacement? How long did it take?
2. My CPS membership expired back in May and I didn't renew it. Funds were tight, and I never used it! :rolleyes: Is it worth signing back up? How much of a discount is there again?

Luckily I still have a backup in my 30D, but man it sucked using that for team portraits this past weekend.

Called Canon and they said about $500 for non-CPS repair. Gold level CPS is about $250-$300. Checked my CPS status and I can renew it. Paying the $100 fee would save me about $200-$250 for repair and turnaround is 3 business days after payment is received. Man I didn't need this right now. Oh well, guess I'll send it in. Cheaper than a new one!

yup i meant for non-CPS. In fact I remember now the 1D mark IIn I bought had shutter replaced early this year (and the guy was CPS member) and the receipt said something like $190 or so - so it may even be less. I can go and check it if you want.

No rush, but if you get a moment that would be great!

Receipt says charge $290 - 30% (CPS gold member) so the total is $203. It was done in February 2010.

yes I do too. But in any case, it's clear that it's better to go CPS way. That way you'll have your membership extended and save some bucks too.

$326.46 to repair it! :cry: On top of the $100 to renew my CPS membership I was probably better off selling it. :o

How much is a broken one worth? A buyer who knows will figure in the shutter cost. You can buy some for around $500 these days, almost throwaway if the shutter dies sadly.

I bought one with a broken shutter for ~US$380 a year ago - cost $170 for a shutter & I spent a week or so replacing it.

It's worth more to me than anyone else since I can't afford a new camera. It's either $435 for the repair (including CPS membership) or $1100+ for a 7D in the loyalty program, plus a grip, extra batteries, and larger CF cards.

Perhaps I should have fixed it myself, but oh well. I should have it back before the air show next weekend.
