Customer Question

Hi, I dropped my camera yesterday :( Now when I take a picture, it comes up partially black, I'm guessing it's an internal problem?

Hi,It is most likely an internal problem. Please remove the lens set the mode dial to M and the AF/M switch on the front by the lens mount to M also. Press the shutter release while observing the lens mount opening. Please let me know if the shutter fires and the mirror goes up and down.
