Re: HLD6 Query

By way of an update, I tried the grip again today after a few days of 'drying out' in a warm dry place.

The good news is that the shutter button function has been partly restored, but it remains hyper sensitive, so it is difficult to focus manually without firing the shutter.

However, the two other shutter buttons (on the camera and portrait grip) now work normally.

This would all seem to suggest that moisture was the problem, but how it got into a weather sealed grip is open to question.

Clearly it still isn't right, but LCE have said they will do what they can to get it repaired under warranty, so I will keep my fingers crossed.
