How many actuations on your Canons?
« on: April 05, 2012, 06:13:04 PM »
According to Canon Professional Services I took over 343,849 photos on the 1dm3 camera i sent in 2010. That was the second time I had it replaced, i never got a number from them the first time but i am sure it was up there.
My buddy has never had his 50D in for repair and i'd wager he has somewhere around 500,000, why do i think that? Because before we even started our own sports photog company he was using it to shoot sports for other companies and since then only my 1dm3 has been in 2x, last time in 2010.
His 50D was made in the heavens i think! lol

Are you a Canon CPS Member? If so then you have free inspect and clean coupons, wouldn't hurt to use one for that body.

Yes. I'm a CPS member.  I sent my 5D2 in not long ago when some buttons stopped working after a torrential ice cold rain storm followed instantly by a step into a 84 degree, 100% humidity tropical green house during an EPIC wedding.  (yup, some buttons got wonky. First time ive every had a button fail on me on any of my cameras)  So sent it into CPS. They changed the LCD, Back Body piece, top LCD, all new buttons, shutter button, just about everything. The thing looked brand spankin new when I got it back. I noted on the repair sheet to take a look at the shutter due to the count, response was "Shutter OK."  So... guess that means I get to wait till it fails then ill send it in again! :)

I love CPS! Especially amazing for us Wedding Photographers!

My 5d3 has 2k on it.    :P

Wow, 500,000 on a 50D is amazing.  That's amazing for any camera.

Yea we used our company to pay us to rent our equipment since the sports company we own didn't buy them. I told him i was glad we did that because i just used it up that year for repairs. It was $730 and that is with 20% off for the gold membership! He will need to replace it sooner or later but if he sends it in i am going to have him request a shutter count because i would love to hear what it is. :)

I remember talking to Dan Heller (danheller.com)when I bought a newly serviced 1ds2 from him. He had 750k actuations on that camera before the shutter went out and had a million+ on some other cameras!

I probably have around 250k on my 5d2. That camera is a trooper! Thinking about using a free cps cleaning later this month.

Only about 5500 on my 50D  :-[

Seems very insignificant to 500,000! It's great to know what the 50D is capable of (even if that figure is in the heavens). I was expecting around 100,000 (before expecting to replace components) from my 50D when I first purchased it.
