Hole in Shutter of EOS Rebel T1i
#15
Hi Arthur,

                Well, we now know! an unfortunate sequence of events that lead to the damage of the shutter, and you did well to post that here, it was a puzzler.

           I did a dumb thing two weeks ago, I put the kettle on the gas and went out to fiddle with something, forgot the kettle and twenty minutes later I went back in to find steam everywhere, windows steamed up etc. Three days ago whilst preparing some of my lenses I noticed that my Sigma EX 50-150 2.8 had two clumps of mould growing on the inside of the front element, I managed to undo the front retaining ring took out the element and cleaned it, luckily there was no sign of further fungus inside, a simple stupid thing that could have been a large repair bill, not counting the other dozen or so lenses which fortunately were untouched. Who would have thought that making a cup of tea could ruin your lenses!

 

 As they say stuff happens!

 

  BTW. You've  some very nice images on your flickre site.  Good luck!
