Default Billy found the Syndrome"

Hello Billy,

Found the same "60D "Syndrome"...

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...+problems&qf=m

Now all works as intended...but...but...each time that I use a externally strobe...must...must do as show in the link the same procedure. Pity!!!

Sincerely,

Alex 007

I'm now on my 3rd 60D. The first one had a metering problem that was not operator error. It worked fine and then one day while outside all the images were extremely dark....as if I had my sunglasses placed in front of the lens. My settings were fine and shouldn't have produced the images. So, I returned that one only to have the second one the next day have the exact same Flash issue as the one stated in this article. I've also seen online of others experiencing the same problem after attaching a Speedlight.

The 3rd one seems to be the 'charm' however as everything is working fine and I'm very pleased with the images its producing. End result, I am VERY happy I purchased the camera. A definite upgrade to the rebel line up.
