    Camera Life

    Hi All
    I am new here but was just wondering... might seem a silly question...but
    I have taken a LOT of photos with my camera, a Canon 70D and a Canon 60D. I do Horse Photography so most of the time the subject is moving.
    I am finding that some pics are just not getting the clarity and sharpness that they used to and I was wondering if camera "wear out" after so many clicks of the shutter?
    I have had both cameras (and lenses) recently cleaned and serviced by Canon but still have the same issue.
    TIA
    Nicky

    Don't know Nicky I've never worn one out and I take a lot of pics too.

    Can you put up a few samples with the settings you used?

    As closei has said, throw up some sample shots and we can make a better assessment. Could be a number of things, shutters can eventually fail, but I doubt that to be the issue in this case.

    welcome to the forum were there are no silly questions

    what are you calling a lot of photos taken
    getting paid for the photos?

    just a thought
    Would you take so many photos if you were using film?

    It's amazing how good the old film users could pre-judge the picture before taking just one photo; or perhaps 3 if the camera had motor drive --- their pre-judging the picture could included manually setting the exposure and focus; and done all without IS lenses

    Today; it seem more about blazing away; wearing cameras out and needing to waist more time on the computer
