Question about Canon EOS-1Ds Digital Camera
I noticed that when shooting outdoors specifically, there is a lighter band going across the top of the frame of my 1Ds (mark I). This occurs especially under bright sun. With an overcast sky, it's either unnoticeable or not there. In shade or indoors, it's non- existant. Occurs with fill flash and without. Occurs at different ISO's as well as different appertures. It stands out particularly when the frame is underexposed and it almost seems like the lighter band is properly exposed versus the rest of the frame. Anyone familiar with this or can give me a clue??

It's a shutter problem--it's not the amount of light per se that causes it, it's the shutter speed. This issue often only shows up at a few shutter speeds. My 1dsII does it around 1/125, although not nearly as badly. Apparently the shutter is bouncing or hanging up at the end of its travel. Sorry, it's either send it to Canon or learn to live with it.
