  • It has been very hit and miss according to people. CPS Canada seems to do a good job. Others, however, have reported that they can’t get the sensors clean. Canon also has been replacing peoples’ ...
  • Replied in whose policy?
    I'm in Canada, and I bought my 5DsR from a US grey market dealer on eBay back in April. I sent the camera in late July for a sensor cleaning and Canon Canada serviced it. I paid for the cleaning. I ...
  • The 5DSR is my favourite Canon camera, and I truly feel it doesn't get the credit it deserves. I prefer using for most situations now because of it's incredible resolution. The dynamic range, as ...
  • If you have spots showing already at f/8 chances are that your sensor is pretty well covered. When you do send it in, please do complain. It's only with enough people expressing even a modicum of ...
  • Head over to Fred Miranda and take a gander at the thread on 1DX Mark II issues. I shoot in a variety of different climates and it makes no difference. I have yet to come across a single 1DX Mark ...
  • You and me both. I wouldn't have bought my camera had I known. It always pays not to be the first with new products.
  • Yep. Arthur Morris (one of the original Canon Explorers of Light) had an entire blog post about it, and he and I have been communicating back and forth about the situation recently. Canon has just ...
  • Nope, there's not way to turn off the AA filter. Just like there's no way to turn off or stop the 1DX Mark II's shutter from flinging oil all over its sensor.
  • Replied in 5d4 vs 1D X II
    This. The 1DX Mark II throws a crap-ton of oil all over the sensor and needs regular cleanings (way more than other models). You have to clean it yourself and risk damaging the delicate sensor ...
  • Just order from the States. While we still have NAFTA, camera equipment is not subject to import duty...only your local sales taxes. I purchased a 5DsR in April from a grey market dealer down in ...
  • It wasn't a handful of 1DX cameras . There was an actual recall for it. There needs to be one again for the Mark II. Studio shooting one frame at a time likely won't yield oil splatter the same way ...
  • I'm positive that it is oil on the sensors, and it does smear. You're right, a sensor brush does not fix the issue. Only a wet cleaning will suffice, and there's risks associated with that. There ...
  • Please send me a photo then. I have backed up what I have said with photo evidence, and I’m happy to post more evidence. Coming on here with your statement of millions of photos is useless to me ...
  • The 5DIV is an excellent camera. I have used it extensively on two occasions and know several people who own it. I didn’t have any problems with it whatsoever when I had the camera in my ...
  • Sorry for the delay. cblasi does indeed have the oil splatter problem. He kindly sent me a RAW photo. Here's some examples. These are from three different cameras. Also, I want add before someone ...
  • Replied in 1Dx III?
    I should add, take a photo of a white sheet of paper or a cloudy or blue sky. A low contrast scene should be used, otherwise the problem will be hidden but the objects in the photo.
  • Replied in 1Dx III?
    Simply take a photo at a narrow aperture - say, between f/11 to f/22 - and then look at the photo, paying close attention to the upper left of the frame. If you have dozens to hundreds of dots, ...
  • Replied in 1Dx III?
    Thats awesome! Can you toss the file up or send it to me? I’d really like to see it and send it to Canon! It would be a HUGE help if we can narrow down the issue to serial numbers.
  • Replied in 1Dx III?
    Read the links more closely, especially the the Fred Miranda one. The exact opposite of your conclusion is true. A lot of people claimed not to have issues and after either sending me files or ...
  • I am currently dealing with both Canon Canada and CanonUSA with Arthur Morris. I have collected files from 27 different 1DX Mark II cameras now and they all exhibit extreme splatter in the upper ...
