    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).

    I have the same issue! Got mine off ebay and the film roll count was only 21. I made a mistake of not shooting a test roll and I shot four or five important rolls. I thought it was uneven development at first but all the rolls had the same dark band at the top. I requested a refund but I'll check Canon if they will still repair the shutter for under $100.

    They probably repaired by replacing worn parts so yeah, you got a new shutter. Maybe not an entire new shutter assembly but its been serviced so you should be good to go for a few thousand rolls now.

    I has exactly this same problem with a 1V I bought on Ebay from Japan last year. I search the web and took it to camera shops and the consensus was it need a shutter replacement. I returned the camera to seller for full refund and bought another from him. It has been absolutely perfect.

    what's with all these shutter problems? I would not expect that from the flagship camera from a great company like Canon.

    I don't think the comments here are truly representative of the 1V's performance. Everything mechanical needs maintenance. I think it is one of the finest cameras I have ever used.

    I also suspect that mechanical objects with delicate mechanism that are stored unused for long periods fare less well than those with regular use. That could be a factor. It's not unusual to read of someone finding slow shutter speeds hanging on an old folder, for example, and then comment that after firing the shutter a couple dozen times it seemed to start working.
