Looks like the shutter broke to me.

How would that cause the image to step out of line in random bands ?

Looks like corruption in the card/reading/transfer somewhere to me.

I took over 100 photos yesterday. This is what I get straight out from my camera(JPEG) – over 60% of photos are like this or worst. I haven’t review raw yet.

You guys have any idea?

I’m 15mins away from Canon Service Center in Irvine, CA. My 5D III still under 1yr warranty.

I went home for lunch and transfered all photos to my home PC. Everything seems to be normal now.

Must be something wrong with PC at work or during transferring to PC at work >:(

Thanks everyone for the helps.

As a 5D3 owner, I'm so relieved at the outcome!  I love a story with a happy ending!

If the files would be corrupt you would have some color/pixel distortions where theses bands end/begin.

I am always worried when reading posts that report a problem with the 5D MK III. So, I am reliefed that the problem was not with your camera.  Glad for you that it is ok.

Canons are built like a tank. I can hardly believe that a shutter can be damaged so fast. My is over 100 000 actuations and everything is fine.
If it ws shutter you could see blurred black burs, not such dfinite lines.
