Broken sensor 1DS-mk3, during clean

I was cleaning my 1DS-mk3 sensor today, when I heard a snap. Sure enough, cracks radiating out from the center of the sensor to the edges.

I was using the Copperhill method with a Sensorswipe and Pec Pads when this happened.

I have been doing this since my 10d and this is not my first time on the 1DS-mk3.

The camera is already shipped to Canon. I will see how they handle it. The Camera is under warranty.

Just a heads up to be careful with sensor cleaning.
