Question about Canon EOS 7s 35mm SLR Camera
I read on a forum that you can reset the shutter by gently hitting the camera at the bottom with the heel of your hand. This does actually work for me whereas the removal of the battery etc. as advised by Canon didn't do anything.
I have had the problem for a few days now, occurring about once a day. These few days have been quite heavy shooting days, about 500 shots a day. It seems to happen more or less first thing in the morning and, once I have freed it by the method above, it behaves for the rest of the day. However I feel that it will probably get worse and fail altogether eventually so I am still looking for a better solution.
