Another body bites the dust
May 25, 2012

I am posting in the XXD forum because of my current ownership of the 7D.

Anyone here suffer the same problem as I do with Canon bodies? Here is my list, I am not including the point and shoot cameras, though I have 2 that bit the dirt.
Rebel 350D - random shutsdown (not worth repair) 2006
Rebel 400D - random shutdown and exposure problems (fixed) 2007
Canon 40D - Does not power up (fixed, replaced board) 2010 Aug
Canon 50D - Aperture and ISO cannot change, now, no power (not fixed yet) 2012
Canon 7D - Will not release shutter (shutterbox failure - repaired) 2010 June
Canon 7D - Sever under exposure in bright sunlight - (not fixed yet) 2012

Am I missing something or is there a quality control issue that Canon is keeping secret. Being locked into a expensive system really leaves you no choice but repairs. As of now I will ask Canon if they can help with cost on the 2 new repairs that are needed with my 7D and 50D. I have this feeling Canon will do nothing.

Another thought maybe during transport I am causing the problem. I place my camera bag in the trunk on my car. My camera bag is really a large knapsack, lightly padded, though my sony A33 has not shown any issues in the past 2 years and all my lenses are in working order.
