Re: Canon EOS 70D takes black pictures through viewfinder

Hi Jule. Stepping back, to be sure we all have the same info, is this your situation:

 

1. everything works fine in LiveView.

2. changing lenses doesn't affect your problem

3. when shooting throgh viewfinder you can get a proper exposure in Manual mode.

 

Is tha above correct?

 

Did you reset all camera settings and clear all custom settings using the Menu?

Re: Canon EOS 70D takes black pictures through viewfinder

Hey John, 

 

Yes these three things are correct:
1. everything works fine in LiveView.
2. changing lenses doesn't affect your problem
3. when shooting throgh viewfinder you can get a proper exposure in Manual mode

and otherwise the photos turn out black.

 

I already tried to reset all camera settings and custom settings, but nothing changed.
