20D shutter life
« on: February 14, 2007, 11:34:42 PM »

my original 20D (now backup) is coming up on 20k images - i've read Canon's blurbs on longer shutter life in the 30D, but haven't heard complaints about failed 20Ds -- any failed shutters out there?

Hi,

the shutter of my 10D break down at 23K, but it was short before end of warrenty so canon has to pay.
The shutter from 30D and 5D should work about 100k

regards

Thomas

I have a 20D at about 22K and no problems yet. I would also be interested to hear from someone who has. This is my main camera and my backup is a 10D which is really starting to feel old.

My 20D sometimes goes dead and I have to pull the battery out and put it back. The battery seems to be fully charged, but I think it may be going faulty.

My wife isn't going to like it when I tell her I need to upgrade

I can shed some light on both the 10 and 20D shutters.

I look after an office that uses digital cameras for documenting there work, there is nine people using these cameras, we have two going at all times.

Okay the 10D I noticed after 18 months of use problems began and I sent the problem camera to Canon for cleaning and repairs.

Each 10D was making 320 to 350 images per day four days per week for 50 weeks.

Thatís about 64,000 shutter cycles before service when they returned I had the cameras replaced with the 20D.

We shot the same 320 to 350 per day with the 20Dís and after 80 weeks some problems started to I replaced the cameras with the 30D

Lets see that would be about 102,400 shutter cycles on the 20Dís
