Hole in Shutter of EOS Rebel T1i
#1
This topic feels a little out of place.  I hope I'm not posting in the wrong spot.  Everyone is talking about the latest developements and I want to know what makes an old camera die.

 

I have read the specs for some cameras, and have seen them proudly state that their shutters will last 100,000 or 200,000 actuations before failing.  Well, I envisioned not working as being kind of boring.  You push the shutter release and nothing happens.  My situation was different.  I thought my photos were getting a little soft so I took a look at the shutter and the sensor.  The shutter has a small hole in it, and the sensor beneath the hole looks like it has smoke residue on it.  Is this the normal way a shutter passes from this mortal coil?  Did the sensor make the shutter too hot?  Did the shutter generate the heat?  Is this normal or must some obstruction had to have got inside between the moving parts.  The camera is not dead (yet).  It's not a big hole.  It's not a good sign.

 

I did clean the smoke off of the sensor.  Maybe the worst is over?  I'll attach a photo if I can.  Any information about this would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Arthur.
