Metering - Horrible underexposure
Dec 14, 2009

I have a new (to me - it's second-hand) 5d on which I thought the LCD had failed - actually just HUGE underexposure. I have tried:
Firmware update to 1.1.1.
Resetting everything
Formatting various CF cards (which work in other Canon 40ds)
Changing Lens

Nothing - the underexposure is AT LEAST 5 stops but the funny thing is that the metering does actually change in response to light but is badly out - I cannot get even vaguely usable images at any ISO. HELP!!
