Question about Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II Digital Camera
Its about 1/2 way down in the view finder and starts about 1/3 in from the left edge and goes all the way to the right edge. The left edge of the white band is at an angle and the top and bottom edges are perfectly straight. The white band takes up about 10% of the image. I had been shooting in very hot conditions at a boat race for four days with everything working just fine. Then it just started. I switched lenses, data cards, and even the battery; nothing helped. I used someone else's camera for the rest of the day and those images looked fine (given his camera). Is this a faulty sensor finally giving out (I've shot probably 50,000 images over the course of 4 1/2 years), or a sensor that simply gave up the ghost? Or is it a shutter problem? Whatever the problem is I'm wondering if its worth the cost of repairing. Also, perhaps Canon will replace at no charge???
Thanks for your help! Right now I'm (as they say in boating...) dead in the water and have missed the greatest boat racing event in my city's annual celebration.
HI I AM SAGHA A CAMERA REPAIRER FROM MUMBAI, I THINK THE SYMPTOMS YOU HAVE OBSERVED ARE THE SYMBOL OF MINUTENESS & PERFECTION OF YOUR WORK.ANY WAY IT IS A COMMON PROBLEM OF SHUTTER BLADES OF 1DM2,IDSM2,IN WHICH ONE LEAF OF THE 2ND SHUTTER BLADE GETS DAMAGED WHICH GIVES WHITE BAND OF BRIGHTER LIGHT FROM LEFT TO RIGHT(NOT OF LINEAR SIZE). I THINK IT WILL BE LITTLE COSTLIER TO GET THE WHOLE SHUTTER BLADES REPLACED.IF U WOULD HAVE BEEN IN INDIA I WOULD HAVE GIVEN U SOME CHEAPER OPTION(LIKE REPLACING ONLY DEFECTIVE BLADE ONLY)WHICH NO SERVICE CENTRE WILL GIVE YOU.ANYWAY GET IT REPLACED FROM REPUTED EXPERIENCED REPAIRER & CHECK SLOWEST & FASTEST SPEEDS AFTER REPAIRING THE CAMERA.REPLY ME WITHOUT FAIL THANK YOU & ALL THE BEST.

Tips for a great answer:
The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD
monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the
viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,
and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
