Well hot diggity dog! Canon repaired my 5D Mark II faster than you can say blog. The person on the phone at Canon was right – it was an internal component problem. They replaced the motherboard, cleaned and checked it and shazam! Right back to me here in Maui. Go CPS!!! I’m going to test it out tonight at sunset, but it looks great at first inspection.
And to all the people who I upset about my comment about HD : my intention was not to p.o. anyone. Never realized that there are so many strong feelings about HD out there! I am only posting my experience about the things I learned when really picking the video component apart alongside people who are working professionals in the film/video industry. Like I’ve said before, the camera is fabulous and for the price, a great product. Happy shooting 🙂
