Lucky for me this did not happen at someone's wedding. The camera is now on its way to Canon Singapore. And yes, i do have a spare body.

    The pic looks bad, better have it replaced ASAP.

    Another thumbs up for Canon Service center. I asked them to rush the job, and they did it without extra charge. They even waved off the service charge to replace the shutter too. From $360++ --> $170.10w/gst. My 1DM2 Shutter died at 25K clicks....., suppose to die only at 200K.
    Here are the pics:

    Oh dear, looks in a rather bad condition. My 10D's shutter replacement is around $178 and includes free cleaning.

    This one i dunno leh, but maybe lor. But gd for u that the pricing have been reduced significantly. Anyway, it's the service charge that's the most expensive one, the shutter unit doesn't cost a lot.

    yup, shutter unit is the thin plate attached at the back.

    This is a defective camera, I just took the shutter for replacement.

    If QC failed, it should not have come out of the factory at all.. no?

    Incorrect. I've experienced before several QC failed new products and went back to the respective shops to get a new replacement. Sometimes during checks, they may have overlooked it.

    If it happens to a particular brand for a few times, I would not buy that brand anymore.

    Fortunately those are only one-time experience for me after replacement, all's ok.

    How do you know they failed QC?

    For example, last time i bought a Manfrotto 484RC2 ballhead from MS Colour and i happily brought it home. During my first use i found that even when i tightened the ballhead to the maximum, it still can move. So obviously it's QC failed, so i brought it back to get a replacement.

    Yeah.. one time kind of thing happens and usually a 1-to-1 exchange is done on the spot. I think it didn't fail QC, just that QC missed it. Because if QC has checked it and failed, it would not have ended up in the shop.

    Most mass-produced items are randomly checked by batches, maybe 10 out of a batch of 200. They don't check every single item off the manufacturing line. The simple explanation is that it didn't fail QC, just that it didn't even go through QC
