Canon 7D Repair Update
My camera repair saga continues. Got a voice mail from Canon today, which wasn’t a good sign. Called them back and found out that my 7D was going to cost over twice their original estimate. Apparently more repairs were required once they got into it. My previous repairs always cost around $215. This one is going to be $655. They have to replace the shutter, mirror box and the top cover. I looked up the price for a new 7D and decided to get this one repaired instead and will likely buy the next version of the 7D if it comes out next year. Should get it back sometime next week.
This makes the 8th shutter that I’ve worn out on a total of 4 cameras. I really need to upgrade to a professional level camera one of these days. But as I mentioned to Doug on my last post, I’m still not convinced that I want a full frame camera for wildlife photography.
