Quote:Just speculating, had the camera been pointed at the sun for too long at some point? That could burn a hole in the shutter. I can't imagine another way for such localised damage.Good suggestion Popo, Arthur, is the holed shutter made of metal? if it's steel I doubt if it's sun burnt, also could have been a short circuit , maybe a denuded wire briefly touched the shutter, that could explain the black deposits. let's see the photo! Strange.
The cases of shutter failure I've seen are more mechanical in nature.
