Canon 30D Shutter Button Repair

A few weeks ago I noticed that I was having a higher frequency of images coming out with signs of camera shake.  I didn’t think much of it, until one evening I realized I was fully pressing my camera’s shutter release button and it wasn’t firing.  Without thinking, I had been rolling my finger around to make it fire, while introducing the shake at the same time.

After some searching, this is a common problem with the Canon 30D, 40D and 50D cameras.  Mine started failing right around 50,000 photos – apparently right on schedule.  I had brief thoughts of making the repair myself, until I ran across this video – and promptly broke out into a sweat.

So I sent the camera in for repair.  It took a week, came back fully functional and clean, and the bill was $201.
