Sensor Going? Purple Shots 5DMKII
« on: May 13, 2013, 12:12:01 PM »
Did not really see this covered except one small mention.  But occasionally I will be shooting and have one image that comes out like it was shot through a purple or blue filter.  It is almost like I am just seeing a single channel instead of RGB.

Is this a sign the sensor is going or other issues with the body?  The CF Card going bad?  Last time it happened was with the 24-105 and a SanDisk card

CF card, most likely. Try a low-level format.
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

As noted, eliminate the simple issues like a bad card, bad card reader, etc.
 
I have seen posts with similar issues where Canon did find issues in the camera, but I don't recall if it was a sensor.

I have been getting this with my 5DII too. It shows up immediately in the screen.  I will try a low level format.  Hopefully, it is the card, because the camera is really new, and low shutter count.

Good luck ... do post your feedback after low level format, so some of us can benefit from your experience.

I had similar happen to me; the images were coming out pink, and it was the previous image reshown as pink, not what I was pointing at. I sent it to Canon; they fixed a PCB assembly or something like that.
What is truth?
