Re: Canon 6D issue

You've got a stuck shutter blade.  This is a mechanical issue.


You should contact Canon and arrange to have the camera sent in for service.

I thought the same thing.  That is why I suggested locking up the mirror and taking a photo.  When you take a photo in Live View, doesn't the mirror cycle down and then up to take a photo?

The mirror cycles down only if you choose the Quick focus mode (uses the non-live view AF)
