Thumbs down A**e, new shutter please

1D2n wasn't quite right this morning shooting the Brighton 10K and then did a err99 on me. Cue a frantic batt change etc etc to see if that would fix things but no joy.

Looking at the output at home, the final frames have one of the blades in them.

The shutter died last year but it was still in warranty then. Anyone want to hazard a replacement shutter cost? I'm thinking it'll be over 400.

Re: A**e, new shutter please

Ouch! But will you be able to persuade Canon to be generous if the number of actuations is nowhere near the rated shutter life?

Re: A**e, new shutter please

Dunno. I must have put at least 100K into it since last year

I was wondering who to send it to but I think I'll start with CPS and see if they will as you say, be nice.

Hope it doesn't turn out too expensive to repair.

Re: A**e, new shutter please

What's the rating on the 1DII? Since you only had the shutter replaced last year and will be able to show the shutter actuations since, then if its not done anywhere near the rated expectancy Canon should replace it free of charge. I would certainly push for that.

Re: A**e, new shutter please

I think the shutter cycle on a 1DMKIIN is something like 200,000 but I've read Canon are very clever with replies when one fails inside that cycle and it's out of warranty.

Re: A**e, new shutter please

Ouch There's no harm in trying with Canon, and there's only one way to find out if you can get it repaired for free, or at least at a reduced rate ... Good luck

Lol that'll be nice

If we found the correct data fields, it did about 64K shots before failing last year. Sunday's total was 157K so approx 92K shots on this current shutter. Still less than half the rating.

It went off to Elstree yesterday so I can't wait <insert sarkky smiley here> to hear back from them.....

Good luck Mike. They usually get back to you fairly quickly, especially as you are with the CPS.

Re: A**e, new shutter please

I've just had quite a long chat with a team leader. They agreed to drop a chunk of labour cost so it'll be just over 150.

That's quite a bit less than I was kind of expecting but still not a welcome cost.

Not welcome, but at least they've done something.

At least you don't have to pay the full 400 or more.

Better than you expected but probably not what you had hoped for.
