Canon 5D Mk IV Problem with light streak on photos

Hello All,

I am having a problem on a Canon 5D Mk IV whereby some white light streak is appearing on most photos - taken both indoors and outdoors.. Any ideas on what the problem could be?

Bad shutter. It needs to be replaced.

(But show an example in case I am wrong)

Yup.  It looks like a bad shutter.  Shutters are delicate mechanisms.  Getting dirt between the blades can severely damage the assembly.

Many thanks @wadizzle for the info.. I guess for this I may have to seek assistance from a Canon service center

Although that isn't a classic example of a failed shutter, it probably is.  A call to Canon is in order to make sure.  Set up a C&C and tell them what it is doing. 1 (800) 652-2666

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!
