    Are shutter failures very common for Canon bodies?

    Out of curiousity
    1) are those affected picts in portrait mode only or a mixture
    2) are those affected picts horizontal picts, inclined upwards or mixture

    Maybe you can try to recreate the angle the camera was in those affected shots and see if anything crops up.

    my experience tells me that the lens hood is the culprit, i have images like this before and its due to using the lens shade in a different position and using different lens hoods for other lenses to create vignetting effects.

    does not look like the shutter curtains , the patterns do not look like this, cheers!

    is it sth physical e.g. camera strap
    else maybe there is sth within your lens tt could be loose and obstructing when you hold the camera vertically upwards?

    It is on vertical photos . Does it happen on horizontal photos in the museum?

    Agreed. The symmetrical pattern, the shape, the edge position and more important the fact that u did not get similar images after that points toward the hood devil.

    This happens often, when we go from outside ( sunny weather ) to inside ( museum for instance ) . We forget to remove it and it is not properly installed and clicked. People panic because they think it was In the right position ... You can try to see also if your gf used the pop-up flash into the museum ( but sometimes not allowed ). If the hood is here and not properly installed you can see from time to time a significant light fallout at the bottom of the picture.

    Regards

    its easy to repeat this pattern, just do not lock your hood, just turn it just slightly and zoom to your widest setting, fairly easy to get this!
