Weird freeze of 5D3 in video mode
« on: January 04, 2013, 08:03:15 AM »
When the camera is in video mode, something weird sometimes happens. I want to make a video, and perhaps push the wrong button and then suddenly a still image* appears on the screen which is totally frozen. The camera hangs and the still will not go away, whatever I do. Even shutting down the camera does not help, the display is still there. It will only disappear when I remove the battery.
Strangely when I tried to reproduce this phenomenon (which has happended twice) I failed, so I do not know which combination of button presses had caused it.
Any idea what causes this phenomenon and what I can do to correct it without removing the battery?

Kind regards,  RobPan.
