1D X intermittent problem: AF spot stops flashing red in AI Servo mode
Jan 26, 2013

In a shoot today, I had a problem where the flashing red illumination of the selected AF spot (visible in AI Servo mode, if so chosen by custom settings) stopped working. The selected AF spot was still visible as a black rectangle, but the flashing red illumination just stopped. Powering the camera off then on restored proper operation.

This is the second time I've seen this problem. The first time was last December, using a different 1D X body. This makes me think it's a design/programming bug, not a manufacturing problem.

Has anyone else seen this behavior?
