Nice work, i said there were not just a one off, cannon should give pepole there money back

Why? 

 

There is a clearly written warning in every Canon DSLR instruction manual that I have looked at, which warns you that extensive use of Live View or Video Mode can cause the camera body to get very hot to the touch.

Re: Canon 70D died

Why? Because i never used my 70d camera for 3 months, it was only 11 month old, I always Store my camera away with no battery in it, I got it out, put fully charge battery in, went to take a photo and the PCB board Went on first photo I went to take, so its nothing to do with being hot. THATS WHY.....

That argument is flatly wrong. When an electronic device burns out, it's usually when it's first turned on, because that's when the components are under greatest stress. But most often it's what's happened to the components during previous use that causes them to fail.

 

You probably won't believe me, but then I'm not an electrical engineer. And neither, obviously, are you. So go ask somebody who is.

In my case I didn't used too much. My device was not even warm. In fact it was cold when it happend. As you can not take videos without live view (cause the viewfinder is off in video mode) is ridiculous to think that you can loose your camera for recording 30 seconds of video.

For you to undestand, recording video "a lot" has nothing to do with the PCB ripping... The structure of the 60D is almost the same than the 70D, and there is a lot 60D working recording whole parties, taking hours of video in a single night. I had one 60D for 3 years and believe me I used a lot ot more then the 70D and never happend nothing like this.

Overheating is not an excuse.

Re: Canon 70D died

This is the big manual of the 70D (http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/5/0300011965/03/eos70d-im4-en.pdf) tell me where is written that advise of burning the PCB forever.
In fact in page 249 are the warnings about live viewing, and it talks about the possibility of image colour aberration and a warning light in case of highs temeratures. There is nothing, not a single word about crushing the PCB. Always repeat that in case of high temperatures, let the camera get down, and then use it again.

Correct.  There are warnings about excessive heat buildup, and letting the camera cool down.
