I think you need to have wifi and gps disabled even with camera switched off to stop battery drain.

Sorry to hear your predicament it must be incredibly frustrating to put it mildly. I really hope your find someone willing to help you out.


i have those off. something is really wrong with this camera. need to find canon shop in london so i can sort this out.

Worst case..... pick up a cheap rebel at the camera store, shoot with it for the rest of the trip, and sell it when you get back.

I didn't win the lottery to buy cameras like that mate.. was already a stretch to get this one.
went to a shop tried a different battery and nothing changed. needs to go back.
gonna have to shoot the rest of the trip with my iphone..  :'(

the camera was out whole day at 1 / 2ºC i guess at night went down to -2. I only had about 600 shots with the camera.. i'm disappointed with canon! Also earlier had a very few drops from light rain. my old 350d had been in worse conditions and survived very well!

send it for repairs to know what's exactly wrong before being disappointed.  As we all know, sometimes there's a bad apple among the production and this happens not only to Canon but for almost all manufacturers.  That's why it is also good to break-in your camera before going to extreme environments.  Good luck with your IPhone pictures though.  I hope it can serve you well.

i've been to richmond park in london on very similar conditions.. to test it, took quite a fiew shots..
yeah i guess instagram will help on those iphone shots..

im going to the camera shop here in reykjavik, try another battery.. as the same problem is showing up with fully charged battery.

 renting another camera is out of question.. worst case scenario, will use my iphone to take pics for the rest of the trip..

EOS Bodies / 6D - error 30!!!
« on: February 15, 2013, 06:34:50 AM »
Im in iceland at the moment - I was shooting the northern lights (dream coming true!) and guess what happened!!

yes I had an error 30 on my camera that said to turn off and on the camera or re-install the battery. I did both of things but still was having it. the camera is only 2/3 weeks old. I was using kit lens 24-105. temperature was probably below 0 degrees. I thought it could be because of cold so I warmed up the battery putting inside my clothes, tried again but nothing. this morning I woke up and went to switch on the camera but it didnt even turned on, battery was maybe dead? so now im recharging the battery and writing this while i wait.


im afraid when I put on the battery again it will do the same error...
is there any way around this?? i cant send it back to repair, i need it here right now in iceland for another 4 days!!
trip of my life and camera does that...!!! im not happy at all..

what is slow? the lens focusing?
are you in photography mode or movie mode?
once you take off live mode is fast as it should be?
