Re: Canon 70D died

I plan on selling all my Canon gear this spring. I want to at least get a little more use out of my 70D becuase of the money spent to for the motherboard repair. I just can't trust Canon anymore after they treated me while  trying to resolve this problem.

I never could get any of my questions answered.  They just won't admit there is a problem with the 70D motherboards.

Re: Canon 70D died

I truly just complained constantly
Writing, emailing, calling, posting to any site I could find how bad their customer service is and how they are using substandard parts and scamming their customers out of more money after already paying a high price for their cameras

I think they just wanted me to go away

I almost told them where to put their camera but my husband talked me out of it saying I have to fix it if I hope to sell my canon equipment

Re: Canon 70D died

Unfortunately I’m late in this conversation but I am also having problems with my 70D. At first I thought it was me and I was just a bad photographer but now I see I’m not the only one with this issues with the 70D.

 

My 70D would not  all the time focus properly, not every time but for the majority of the time. Then when I wanted the flash to pop up it would just make a clicking noise. Last thing was even when I Turned off my 70D it stayed on. The only thing I could do was to remove the battery.

 

Since I am no longer under warranty, I took it to Camtex and they told me it has a major focusing issue and they said it would be over $580.00 to fix it. Ouch!

 

Can anyone suggest a good fix or at least expensive fix?

 

Thank

wushuyvr:  It doesn't seem same problem. Did you try focusing with liveview?  It's fast and accurate in 70D.  Did you tried another lens?

Re: Canon 70D died

I tried it on multiple lens

 

everything from the kit Lens 18-55

Canon 24-70 f2.8

Tamron 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD

And Caon 100-400 mkii

 

Kind of a hit and miss with focusing

Ok, until you find a better budget you will be pleased with photos taken using liveview.
