Shutter dying? 1ds2
Craig Glaspell, Photographer, Assistant
Murrieta | CA | USA | Posted: 1:26 PM on 05.21.09
->> I usually run a pair of 1ds2's and looking at some images from yesterday, I noticed something weird on one of the bodies. Check the link, upper left hand corner of these screengrabs from photomechanic, that fading line thing?

I put my 300 on the other body later in the day and those pics don't have the fading line? any ideas?

->> Craig while I'm not a Canon shooter, I did have a similar band appear at the bottom edge of frames that were shot as a burst. Turned out to not be the shutter on my D2X but rather the mirror. The mechenism that pulled the mirror up out of the way was only pulling it up partially. This was only happening if I fired a burst. In single shot mode all was well. The solution was to hold the camera UPSIDE DOWN for the remainder of the hockey game and get it out to Nikon ASAP.

I shot the body with the lenses mounted to a monopod upside down and used a short cable release that I keep in the bag for 3 days (Fri-Sun) before UPS'ing it out on a Monday.

Nikon replaced the mirror assembly and 72 hours later the shutter exploded. Just my luck.

->> It does look like the shutter. My Mark II shutter died, and it was a white diagonal streak across the frame.

->> Hmmm - that's not what it looked like when my shutter blew out on my Mark II. There would just be a random black line, and a completely blown out section. And if it only happened with one lens, that's even stranger. I'd say put a different lens on and just fire away, and see what happens. That will at least rule out the lens as the culprit.

->> No, this does not look like when my shutter went out either. The line will be black instead of white. But in any case, it needs to go in. Let them figure it out.

->> You can get either a black or white line during a shutter failure. What is happening is that either the shutter is having a hard time opening or closing, thus underexposing (black strip) or overexposing (white streak). There are many variations to shutter failure that will produce different results on your images.

->> I have a 1D mkII body, on which the shutter blown last year.

I had it sent to Canon who dissembled the body, replaced the shutter en got everything in the body cleaned.

It costed 4.750 SEK (i am living in Sweden)+ VAT which is about $500 + VAT.
