Photoman: Canon 5DMK1 - Mirror falls out - Fail!Canon 5DMKII - Didn't upgrade AF - Big Fail!Canon 5DMKIII - Light Leak?! - EPIC FAIL!!!!
Bahahahahahahha......You just made my day Canon.Have been selling your cameras for a long time now and I have seen the quality of your cameras going down Canon, over the years. At least it wasn't a shutter fail like you XXD DSLR's.Bring on the next failure Canon!
Henry and Gothmoth, please just shut up. I am getting tired of flagging your nasty abusive posts.
And please stop calling people who don't agree with you trolls.
That is the pot calling the kettle black.
XmanX: Can anyone tell me where all the Nikon users hang out when they need a break from shooting epic pictures?
Right in line after all the Canon users getting their cameras repaired.
CameraLabTester: Good news!
A patch will be coming out... a real life patch that is.
It's called a Black Wire Tape. Cut about 2 inches from the roll and stick on top of the LCD as often as you like. $1.29 on most retail stores. About $59.95 on camera shops...
Then USE the back LCD like the rest of the Kiss and Rebel mortals...
Why should you have to not use a camera feature because the camera is badly made?
The whole thing is that you shouldn't have to work around a flaw, it should be fixed.
If there is a light leak it will probably be a problem in any strong lighting situation.
Boldi: Fine..I remember one of my colleagues bought an EOS 450D and after a few shots we realised the pictures set to be totally horizontal were not horizontal. So either the sensor or the mirror or the penta mirror was in a bad position causing aslope/awry pictures. My colleague has to compensate every picture with a few degrees..Canon should spend less money on marketing and more on testing and quality.
Canon trolls have no memory at all, obviously.
Jmmg: It is a "Light leak" from somewhere physically whitin the body, not a software issue...how could a firmware upgrade fix it????
It isn't being blown out of proportion.
An expensive, top of the line, camera should not have light leaks at all.
You shouldn't have to use duck tape or compensate with software.
It is a manufacturing defect and should be repaired or the camera replaced by Canon.
nravindra: I was about to place my order... its all confusing now: should I wait for the issue to be rectified or totally go for another FF camera? Ofcourse, I am locked on to Canon as I have couple of premium lens... Any suggestion? :-(
Henry M. Hertz and Gothmoth:
And you are Canon trolls with the IQ of a raisin.
Why don't you quit while you are ahead?
Oh, by the way, the word is effect not affect.
pacogwapo: DxOMark verdict: Nikon D800 – 95, Canon 5D Mark III – 81
Give it a rest Gothmoth!
KonstantinosK: Light leak, unimpressive DxOmark results, high price... Poor Canon...
Why don't you just be quiet?
There is no need to take your anger out on the Greeks just because Canon made a poor quality camera.
This has nothing to do with Greece and everything to do with Canon's quality control.
Alex Akai: This is another slap in the face of Canon. Don't these guys have a testing process before they release an important update like this ? I sold all my Canon gear after my 40D (err99?) shutter just broke after only ~9000 clicks. Got myself a D7000 and couldn't be happier. Not saying Nikon cameras don't have any problems, but at least they give you more options and superior UI.
And your reply is just another canon trolling.
I think that light leak on an extremely expensive camera is a very big deal.
