I agree that your experience adds to a body of evidence regarding high humidity performance but if you had been ".. out covering an important event." you would be equipped with one of Canon's professional cameras. Just saying...

Further to that... the camera stopped again and only started working again after a day back in in Australia and if aliens landed in the backyard a box brownie would score you the shot of the century.

I'll agree that any camera will do in a pinch; the point is that pros don't leave their jobs to chance.

 

BTW what's so surprising about aliens in Australia? Wallabies, kualas, and kangaroos! Oh my! Smiley Happy

Well...so much for North American warranty and competence. The camera was fixed for 30 dollars in Europe.

The proper procedure in such a case would be to try to borrow a camera from the aliens. They wouldn't be here if their equipment weren't better than yours.

Re: EOS 70D display screen not working because of humidity - Canon cutomer service totally unhelpful

I live in the Philippines and most of the pictures I want to take are while my family and I are vacationing in beaches, very near if not on a boat on the sea. Also, it is hot and humid here most of the year. So I am very sorry to read  that the 70D can go defective in my kind of environment. I really should have bought a better camera. I am sorry that I was led to believe that the EOS 70D is a good camera. I mistrakenly came to this conclusion after seeing many good reviews about it on youtube and on many photography forums here on the internet. Here, the internet is my only source of information as I am not a professional photographer and not a member of any photography group or club. I am appalled at the difficulties the OP met in having his 70D repaired. If such is the case in North America, how much more difficulty will I meet when I need it for my 70D here, in a backward country such as the Philippines? My 70D cost me a small fortune here. I regret buying it if one day it will die on me because I live in a hot and humid country.

Hi, my 70D displays white screen with some coloured lines in live view and when reviewing the pictures as well. The photos are also white. I don't know how to solve it.

 Did you experienced the same?

 And how did you fix it? Cool dry air next to it you say?
