Canon Confirms “Light Leak” Issue in the 5D Mark III
Oh snap indeed.
Canon makes digital cameras? Who knew? I thought they stopped making cameras with the F1N (just kidding)
This is why I never buy something fresh on the market. I got screwed on my first new truck... had like 6 recalls in the first year.
It's a good thing I rarely photograph in sheer darkness or with the top LCD on.
If that was the only problem... However I have a good buddy who has been shooting with it for weeks, and he immediately noticed how his pictures were consistently exposed improperly, on more occasions than just dark conditions.
But it said it strong light from the sun also affects the meter.
I would just add some small strips of black tape to the top then. lol.
Another Canon mistake. Problem with this major flaw is that it can't be fixed with a firmware update like the 1D mklll focus issues. I would guess that it is going to be a complete recall on this body.
It appears to be their only option.
They've already recalled one batch from distributors.
So I suspect a full recall is going to be needed; plus I know some have not experienced this problem (might be something that is affected by manufacture tolerances and thus maybe not 100% of units are affected - explaining how pre-release builds got through testing) so it might wel lbe something that lingers a little in the second hand market.
There's a solution of course: Nikon | Home
