    its not often i hear someone criticize the reliability of Canon. i consider them to be remarkably reliable as I've owned T2i, 70D, 5D 1, 2 & 3 plus 2 - 1DmkII's, 1DmkIII, 1DmkIV and a 1DXmkII. all so solid that id consider a failure of a Canon to be an extreme anomaly which of course can happen with any brand.

    The 1DC is quite reliable as a stills camera. As a 4K camera, have to work within the limits.

    I dropped my camera on a hard floor. It got a little dent. Kept working. I had the part replaced under warranty when i brought it in for the firmware update.

    My experience was good, but some people expect a dslr to work as hard as a dedicated professional video camera. Just isn’t that kind of camera. It is a DSLR by design. A rugged and generally extremely reliable until someone tries to shoot 4K day in and day out all day.


    The 1DC was my favorite camera at the time. Had a better image than the C300.

    I had a mac book pro do that. One of the cards fried. They replaced it, two years later the same card fried. They didn’t fix it the second time.
