Camera/Lens Issue

4 posts in this topic

My daughter - who is no longer with us - dropped my camera. It now over exposes severely. My question is - is it the camera or the lens? Everything seems to work except the metering. The lens is a 2.8 70-200 and the camera is a 30d. I'd obviously try another lens but don't have one. Any service center recommendations? Anyone want to adopt a 12 year old?

Thanks.

Dirk, my cat did that once, thought the strap hanging down was a play toy. These things do happen crazy Your best bet here is to send the camera back to Canon. I would send both the camera and lens together. They will check and calibrate the focus of the two together as well. There are two main service centers, one in Irvine, CA and the other in Jamesburg, NJ. I've used the NJ facility and was extremely satisfied with them but both centers have great service.

I don't know what the current backlog is right now with them but I would expect it is around 2 or 3 weeks. I am a Canon Professional Services member and my last trip from my shipping to back in my hands was 4 days, but without a CPS membership I have heard the above time frame.

Good luck with the camera, they are replacable...but 12 year olds are not. Someday you will laugh, just not in the near future cool

    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....  
    • i,ve been falsey accused of inproprieties!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Ken W, I have that book too. Before the internet it was really tough to find info. about sausage making. I never had luck getting a tangy flavor using Fermento. The sausage was very good though.
    • Jacks work very smooth, fresh grease and by hand feels fine for the amount of weight.  I think for the winter we'll just use the gas auger up and the hand drill down.  I don't want to sink another penny into these darn jacks if I can help it, should be swapping out by next year.  I may look into the gear reduction but I feel like trying to throw one of them on each of the jacks could add another 100 that could go toward electric.  leech if you ever stumble on that video post the link so I can see what hes doing different.  Works great on the tongue when it can pivot on the wheels but when lifting the full weight of the house at the back two jack points it just doesnt cut it.
    • I wondered about that when you were building the house. I think you will have to go electric jacks unless you can figure a gear reduction box of some kind. That might be easier than it sounds with some thinking (I hope). Could you mickey mouse the guts of a 2 speed winch? That's a simple gear reduction. Leech, that would have to be a gear reduction box of some kind, right?
