Brand new 6d (WG) dead not powering up
Dec 26, 2013

Hi folks,

I have a 5D III as sometimes I work as a paid photographer. So I need a back up body.

I weighed up options. Another 5D III or 6D, In the end purchased a 6D from Jessops.

It arrived on 24th Dec and I powered it up. Set date and time and a few other settings. Left it for 3 hours and when I returned it was dead.

I have tried different batteries which all work in my 5D III + show full charge however no luck. No sign of life.

Just wondered if any one else has experience this?

I guess it's just a one off faulty camera & the 6D is as reliable as a 5D III....

It has got me wondering if I should have splashed out and just purchased another 5D III.

I purchased at Jessops online and will call them when they reopen.

Will let you know how I get on with Jessops.
