Many speculations have been flying around in the internet regarding how many count Canon DSLR camera shutter can last. Instead of just guessing around, I have decided to refer to Canon Japan themselves. Yes, need words from Canon Japan themselves in black and white (or colour) instead of just verbal talk.
Here’s what I found in Canon official camera brochures:
Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III – 300k shutter duration test
Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III – Did not mention in the brochure, other than just “Accurate Highly Durable Shutter”. However the shutter picture is same as the 1Ds Mark III picture, so I would guess it to have the same 300k shutter duration test as in 1Ds Mark III.
Canon EOS 5D – 100k shutter duration test
Canon EOS 40D – 100k shutter duration test
Canon EOS 450D – No info in the brochure.
