Canon product advisory for Error 70 or 80 on Canon EOS 70D

Canon Eos 70d

Canon released a product advisory for the Canon EOS 70D.

Service Notice: EOS 70D: Error 70 or Error 80

Thank you for using Canon products.

We would like to offer our sincere apologies to users who have been inconvenienced by the phenomenon described below. We value the trust our customers have placed in us, and we are dedicated to continuously improving product quality as well as delivering industry-leading service and support.

Phenomenon

In rare cases, error 70*1 or error 80*1 may repeatedly display on some EOS 70D digital SLR cameras due to an internal communication failure resulting from the structure of the electrical printed circuit board. If use of the camera is subsequently continued, a state may occur in which the camera’s power does not turn on. In most cases, this phenomenon occurs in conjunction with continuous use of the camera while the camera’s internal temperature is high, such as when shooting movies continuously.

“Err 70” or “Err 80” will appear on the LCD monitor at the back of the camera or on the LCD panel at the top of the camera.

*1There may be rare occurrences of error 70 or error 80, after which the camera functions can be recovered by turning the power off and on again, or by re-installing and reinserting the battery. The phenomenon described here refers to the frequent reoccurrence of error 70 or error 80.

Possibly Affected Cameras

Only some EOS 70D digital SLR cameras are affected by this phenomenon.

The phenomenon may occur only in cameras whose first two digits in its serial number are within the range of “00” to “22”.

Support

EOS 70D digital SLR cameras on which error 70 or error 80 occurs repeatedly and that have a serial number within the range specified above will be inspected/repaired free of charge. Please note that inspection/repairs for any other issue will be handled as normal repairs.

If you wish to make a request for the free inspection/repairs, please bring the camera body only with the body cap attached to a Canon Service Center.

See Hong Kong in this pretty psychedelic timelapse and hyperlapse video

Kirill Neiezhmakov made a timelapse and hyperlapse video of Hong Kong. This is for sure not your typical timelapse video. It’s a timelapse and hyperlapse video with a decent dose of psychedelic elements.

The video was made using two Canon EOS 60D, an Canon EOS 70D, Sigma 10-20mm f/4.0-5.6, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, Samyang 8mm f/3.5, Canon EF 17-55mm f/2.8, Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L and a GoPro Hero 4. Adobe After Effects, Lightroom and LRTimelapse have been used for post-processing.

Canon release firmware updates for EOS 70, EOS 6D, SL1, Rebel T5i and T6

Eos 70d

Canon released a bunch of firmware updates for a set of DSLRs. The update…

corrects a phenomenon in which when using the camera with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM or EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens, even if lens aberration correction is set to “Enable”, correction will not be applied.

The EOS 6D firmware update won’t fix the EF-S 18-135mm since this lens can’t be used on a full-frame body.

The updates:

Canon will likely add these fixes to more firmware updates for other DSLRs.
