Bummer

This is not what a shutter is supposed to look like.

I had a shoot in LA yesterday and about half an hour into it my camera made the worst noise and quit working. I opened it up to see that my shutter was blown. Thank God I brought backup equipment. Well, I'm off to Canon to get my shutter replaced.

Edited to add:
Well the good news is the folks at Canon were super nice and helpful and even put a rush on it so I can have it before I leave for Texas next week. The bad news is it cost over $600. Wow.

thank goodness for backups. I must have just missed you. I just dropped my body off for a sensor cleaning.
