Error 80 - 5D Mark III
« on: April 07, 2012, 11:24:24 PM »
Got this today while shooting out in 85 degree weather.  I wonder if I'm the only one to get this on the new camera...

I popped the battery out and put it back in and all was well.

At the time I was shooting with my 100mm IS macro, which I have to admit, while it's sharp, is constructed like a piece of crap.  It's been in for service once already due to the plastic IS mounts inside rattling around.  I thought it was broken, but I guess that's just how an $1100 lens is supposed to sound.  :p

Not sure if it's due to the lens, memory card, camera, etc.

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

There is another topic about this subject. Others have seen this issue when using non Canon batteries. What batteries are you using?

The other topic is here... http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=5358.0

It's definitely not confined to other batteries.  I've only been using the Canon supplied battery with the camera and I'll see the error every 1 in a hundred shots or so.  It occurs with both the kit lens and my 35L.

I have the same problem, several lenses, several memory cards, several batteries, all canon batteries.  It happened on one camera, I returned it, and the second (and current) one I have does the problem too.

Let me know if anyone finds out a solution.

I get the Err 80 with one specific CF card.  A 16GB Kingston 133x.  I also have 5 other identical cards, same brand/size/everything and they all work fine.

For me, it's not related to batteries or even a specific make/model of card, but rather just with ONE card period.   If you can't reproduce it, you can't explain it.  I just don't use that card in the camera anymore and everything's fine.

EDIT:  I revisited that same card that's giving me issues - it's not an Error 80 - it's Error 02.  I tried doing a reformat in a card reader connected to the computer - did the "slow" version which took forever.  No change - still can't seem to write to it

Have you tried formatting the cards in a card reader and with a computer?

Seems a lot like the problem I had with my Oly gear a few years ago. Went from the E-520 to the E-3 and just popped the card in, formatted it in-camera and went shooting. Random freezes, mirror would lock up and nothing would happen until the battery was taken out.

The solution was to properly format the card with a computer (not quick format), put it back in the camera and format it again in-camera. Never had any problems again after that.

I still use the same CF cards with my Canon gear and yes, I did format them before putting it in the 7D and I still do format the cards once in a while in the computer and then in-camera.

Worth a shot anyways...

Same problem here.   Several different cards ranging from 8GB SanDisk Extreme III, Lexar 16GB Pro 400x to Eye-Fi 8GB.  Some SD, some CF and various lens combinations.  I have probably seen the error 15 times in the 4 days I have had the camera body.

Not good numbers.  Have you had it happen with just one card in there?

Do an overwrite via computer to those cards that might not work. I have had one single memorycard act up on me, ever, since, *hmm, I remember seeing a dinosaur* and I put it in my card-reader and did a 8 times overwrite on my Mac, it has worked flawlessly ever since....

Try without the Eye-Fi card in the camera - maybe only CF card, or CF and normal (not Eye-Fi) SD-card- maybe that could solve the problem.

Looks like a lot of peopla had this problem, all was using Eye-Fi.

Yep..  Seems to be Eye-Fi related.. Regardless, if it's being used for writing or not.   I removed the Eye-Fi and have probably shot 3000 frames or more and have not received the error again.   I also low-level formatted all my cards in my PC...

FWIW...

Is your Eye-Fi card class 10, 6, or 4?
