Having used digital SLRs since 2005 (5D, 5D Mk II, two 1D Mk IVs, and a 1D X), I had never experienced a completely black image until late last year.  In November, while shooting at Mission San Diego, I experienced one!  It was on my 1D X, with a reliable flash card and in very good available light. 

The image contained all of the shooting data as if it had been one of the images of the same subject both before and after the blank one?  There was no fault/error code at all!  So, I feel your pain!  That happened at around 800 shutter actuations and has not occurred in the 3,000+ shots since. 

I spoke with Canon Irvine about the experience when they performed a clean and check on my 1D X in February.  Nothing was noted during the check and all has been well since.  I guess the old saying "Truth is stranger than fiction" might actually apply here!
