I just called Canon because still hadn't heard from them yet. The nice woman on the phone indicated that I should have received an e-mail yesterday (they had my e-mail wrong) to inform me that my camera has been fixed. It was just some connections that needed to be reconnected. They replaced the back panel (where it was dropped and had gotten chipped/broken) and also cleaned the sensor while there.......FOR NO COST!!! The repairs were covered under warrenty and all I'm out of is the overnight shipping I paid. I'm just so happy that my stupidity didn't cost me more! There's a HUGE weight lifted off my shoulders now. I can finally breath!!! Now I'm REALLY off to go buy my Black Rapid RS-W1 strap I've wanted
I had a shoot this morning and it was going Wonderfully. We were about a half hour in and I'm showing one of the little boys what I wanted him to do. I hopped down off the wall and my camera fell out of my hand...and onto a concrete sidewalk! I kept my freak out internal and fiddled with the camera. No go, it's broken. I hold my composure and I profusely apologize to the family. The poor mom asked me if I needed a minute, at that moment she was freaking out more than I was. I just brushed it off and said we'd do another half hour shoot when I got my camera figured out.
Well, I get in the car after they leave and that's when the freak out hits! I get home and on the phone with Canon. It's got to be the shutter. It won't do anything, flashes Error 50 on the LCD. My brother comes over so I can test my lens and make sure it's OK (it is). My camera is now in a box at the UPS store for overnight delivery to a Canon service center. This just stinks!
PSA: WEAR YOUR STRAP!!!!!
