    Not CPS usa.
    The last film camera covered is a 1V and they drop coverage for the digital bodies fairly quickly.
    I have a 1D2 and the last digital they cover is the 1D2n.

    I got the camera back from Canon. The receipt said "Shutter Repair"... Agh, the guy at the counter said it was probably going to get a new shutter, which I was excited about. I guess the issue was repairable, I'm not sure if there's a way to tell if it was replaced or not.

    I'm currently running a roll of Tri-X through it to see if the issue has bene resolved. I'll get this developed next week and find out.

    Don't worry about it. It takes a veeeery long time before the shutter of an analogue SLR of the 1v's calibre reaches its nominal death. It's much more likely that the previous shutter broke down because of operator error or some other external cause than from some inherent shutter defect.

    Hoping that the camera is fine now! If so then it should last you forever (quite a long time actually).
