p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · How much are shutter replacements?


It fascinates me endlessly that whenever a used body is being sold people ask about the shutter count.

Are replacement shutter's that expensive? If so, by how much for the 5D2, 7D and 1D4?

There is more to shutter count than just the shutter such as the whole mirror mech. and the numerous buttons that get worn out etc. Shutter replacement itself is typically $200-$350ish. It's similar to asking how many miles are on a used car-you wouldn't probably be a smart buyer if you bought a used car without asking that would you?

More than just the cost is the inconvenience and risk associated with a shutter that dies gradually instead of suddenly and affects many photos to greater or lesser degrees. When my 1Ds2 shutter played up in an obvious way I was peeved with the camera but then I found evidence of the problem starting several months earlier and I was peeved with myself for not seeing it earlier while it was still well within warranty. Two shutters and a circuit board later it is much better but that took a total of about 20 weeks without the camera spread over three services.

Changing the shutter on a camera is like changing the tires on a car. I personally don't know why folks make such a big deal of it. Yes, there is a moderate fee, but from the amount of usage you'll get out of the camera, the cost is low.

I just had my 1 D mark III's shutter replaced last month before I sold it. It cost me $263.17 from Canon Service Center in Jamesburg, N.J. with my CPS Gold 30% discount. I'm sure the newer bodies are the same or slightly higher.
